Fangs for the Fantasy Podcast: 2014, Episode 7

It's Monday! Time for another episode of Fangs for the Fantasy, the podcast where we examine many of the shows we've been following this week, along with our book of the week and dissect them all from a social justice lens (though, alas, still no mermaids.).

You can join us here and you can listen live on our youtube channel, here, or in our sidebar. All will also carry a recording after the show is finished. As ever all our previous podcasts can be found in the archive

The podcast begins at 7:00pm EST (technology willing)

This week we talk The Walking Dead the horror of the mullet, Michonne's development with the unfortunate mammy implications. Being Human and us liking the new focus on Sally but hating their addiction comparisons. Bitten and the lack of explaining the books better - which is a wonderful turn around for us. Helix and it's continued development

We also discuss how a bad reputation with treatment of marginalised people can't be forgotten with one or two good scenes.

Our next few books of the week:

17th February - 24th February: The Chopping Block (Grimm)
24th February - 3rd March: Undead Pool by Kim Harrison
3rd March - 10th March: Night Broken by Patricia Briggs
10th March - 17th March: Murder of Crows by Anne Bishop
17th March - 24th March: The Walking Dead: The Fall of the Governor Part 2 by Robert Kirkman & Jay Bonansinga
