Caitlin, Anya, and Alan talk about the premier of His Dark Materials, Lyra’s Jordan. We have thoughts about the Gyptian Bar Mitzvah, opening the show with Lord Asriel, and the meaning of “EVERYONE’S SPECIAL!!” Explain yourself Beta-Asriel.

Who is Lorne Balfe? He created all the amazing music on the show.

String Theory?

Mat Fraser has had a varied career in show-business. He has been a musician, playwright, stage actor, podcaster, and television actor. He was born with phocomelia, which shortens a person’s limbs, caused by the use of thalidomide while his mother was pregnant.

The flood scene is from the prequel novel La Belle Sauvage.

There is a Golden Compass video game?!

What is The Shire?

It might be a stretch to compare the Magisterium’s symbol to a Globus Cruciger, but that won’t stop Alan from saying it.

Galileo Galilei wrote a ‘Dialogue Concerning the Two Chief World Systems’ which led to a confrontation with Pope Urban VIII. At the end of Galileo’s trial it has been told that he muttered, “All the same- it moves,” as he left the room, which is most likely what Anya was recalling.

Our theme song is Clockwork Conundrum by NathanGunn
