Episode 32: The Exposed

Episode 32: The Exposed

This speak: After some quick subplot melodrama, Rachel and Cassie end up at the mall (surprise surprise) where they quite conveniently encounter a malfunctioning Erek. Oh no! After helping to bail out the Chee, the Animorphs (and Ax!) are off on another wildly inconvenient mission. This time, it’s another ocean adventure, as the team takes forever to acquire the perfect morph to reach the bottom of the ocean. That’s where the big doggy spaceship is. What lies below, inside the Chee’s hidden spacecraft? Nothing. Nothing at all. How will the Animorphs (and Ax!) get outta this jim-jam?! *Shrug* All that and more when we review Animorphs book, #27, The Exposed.

Episode 28: The Michael Grant Interview

Episode 28: The Michael Grant Interview

On this unfeasibly special episode of Thought-Speak, Mitchell and Coleman somehow managed to snag an interview with the man, the myth, the legend and one-half of the K.A. Applegate duo that gave us Animorphs, Michael Grant! We were lucky to have an hour of his time where we spoke with him (quite candidly at times) about all of his works, including: Front Lines, Gone, BZRK, Messenger of Fear, Eve & Adam, and of course our beloved Animorphs. This is not an episode to be missed, folks!
