Podcast: Neon Genesis Evangelion Watchalong – Episodes 7-13

You guys. You guys. It’s an elEVAtor.

The Evangelion cast crowds into a elevator, smashed up against each other

Our multi-part watchalong of Neon Genesis Evangelion continues! Vrai, Dee, and special guests Isaac and Lizzie discuss gender roles, sex and sexuality, and overall have a pretty good time with this “monster-of-the-week” stretch of episodes. But why does Vrai keep chortling in the background…?

Air-rollerblading into your ears.

I’m real proud of this one, y’all. To celebrate Chatty AF’s 100th episode, the whole team got together to talk about the criminally underappreciated shoujo space opera epic, Jupiter Ascending. Join us as we discuss female power fantasies, isekai story beats, Academy Award-Winner Eddie Redmayne, and whether the film is Good Actually, Bad Actually, or somewhere in between.

Hang on to your hats, it’s an action-packed ride.

A girl hangs from the back of a train. Two people, a Spanish woman and a blonde boy, grab hold of her hands to keep her from falling.

Caitlin, Peter, and I look back on the Fall 2018 season! We touch on the licensed shows we watched this Fall, including sequels, shorts, and a few Netflix latecomers of note. A busy season calls for a busy podcast—and plenty of spirited debates.

Team Rocket sitting behind microphones. Jessie and James are wearing brightly colored suits, bow ties, and sunglasses. Meowth sits between them. All three are smiling cheerfully.

Please enjoy our grumbles about how inaccessible academic writing is, our excitement about returning contributors, and our recent decision to make Team Rocket the site ambassadors. Oh yes. I have that in writing, folks.
