Hey y'all,
 
This week, Julie took a nap and Janine did some space stuff while Allison and special guest Jenna Pulkowski talked book shit for Outlander's fifth season. Should go without saying, but do not listen to this episode if you have not read the books and want to remain unspoiled!
 
Please join us for our season five dice-rollin' awards-givin' wrap-up spectacular, live on Sunday 5/24 at 1 p.m. CST. This event is open to all listeners, not just patrons, so feel free to "bring" a friend (or a "friend," no judgments.) Link here: https://www.crowdcast.io/e/live-s5-party
 
Last, a brief CONTENT WARNING: there's a brief discussion of sexual abuse and sexual violence from roughly 42:30 to 44:10.
 
Lots of love,
Julie, Allison, and Janine (and Jenna!)

Hey y'all,

 
Woof, here we go. Early in the episode, you'll hear Allison talk about a safe jump-ahead point for anyone who might want to avoid our discussion of the sexual violence in "Never My Love." You can listen safely until the five-minute mark and then skip ahead if you want to avoid all prolonged discussion of the first half of the episode. If you jump to 33:50, you'll hit the section where we talk about the dissociative episodes (the "Never My Love" stuff); if you jump to 49:52, you'll skip to the battle in the woods and Claire's recovery. Any mentions past that point are fleeting, though we do discuss her recovery at length. You should also stop reading these show-notes now, we love you, you look super nice today, love that top, your hair is so shiny, you're doing great, we'll see you next week.
 
For the rest of you: There's a lengthy discussion in this episode about the show's history of sexual violence, and we wanted to mention that our list is depressingly and distressingly incomplete. The fact that it's difficult to remember every instance of sexual violence in this show is, frankly, bonkers. But we forgot Fergus in season two. We forgot Weeian in season three. We forgot Jamie in season three (biting or no biting, Geneva Dunsaney extorts sex from Jamie, so that's another one.) And sadly, we're pretty sure there are others. That's messed up. Our feelings about that are really complicated, so just know that if yours are too, you're not alone—and whether or not these stories are well-handled is a separate issue from when, why, and how often they're addressed. Anyway, however you feel about it, your feelings are valid. 
 
Anyway, your hair is also shiny and your shirt is also super cute and you are wonderful just in general, we love you, and we'll be back next week for some season-overview chat. And here's the Brian Dennehy song we referenced: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oqrtoFWglMY&feature=youtu.be.
 
Lots of love,
Allison, Julie, and Janine

Hey y'all,

This week friend of the show Ruth "I wrote a fuckin' amazing limerick about Murtagh in five minutes" McCormack joins Allison and Janine to talk about the Hot Pess episode to end all Hot Pess episodes (Hot Pessisodes?), Diana Gabaldon's "Journeycake." Come for the bad time traveling, stay for the SPERRRRRMS.

Patreon friends — Look for another inthebooooooks on Crowdcast later this week.

Lots of love,

Julie, Allison, and Janine (and Ruth!)

Hey y'all,
 
This is a bit of a weird one—some audio issues, some cat issues, some "Allison can't stop harping about book stuff" issues—but we think you'll like it as much as some folks like second breakfast. 
Also, Patreon backers can look for an intheboooooooks Crowdcast - exact time TBD but it'll be Saturday.
 
Lots of love,
Allison, Julie, and Janine
