Fangs for the Fantasy Podcast 2015, Episode 1

It's time (after a brief technological interlude) for our first podcast of the New Year! We will continue to examine Urban Fantasy in it's many forms through our social justice lens - with some praise, lots of snark and occasional mermaid jokes!

We looked at The Librarians movies, The Librarians series, Helix, Constantine, Lost Girl, Sleepy Hollow (and all that is wrong with Katrina), American Horror Story

And series we just want to die: American Horror Story, Vampire Diaries, Under the Dome, The Strain.

We're also stunned that Beauty and the Beast is renewed.

Our books of the week were Burn for Me by Ilona Andrews and Dark Currents by Jacqueline Carey

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)

For those reading along, our next few books of the week are below (we occasionally have to exchange them due to unforseen availability problems or new releases)
