This week I had the pleasure of discussing the latest episode of Outlander with Marisa Mohi. I’ve known Marisa since college when we took all of the writing classes together. Literally, like all of them. You can trust her to be a great podcast guest because 1) she’s an awesome writer (Seriously. Hers were some of the few critiques I knew I could count on and trust in class. Another story for another time.), 2) she’s witty as all get out (see all posts by Marisa on the Lost Ogle for proof), and 3) because she loves Outlander and it’s sort of necessary for this podcast.
It was truly a pleasure because this was THE WEDDING EPISODE and…
For real, y’all.
So, if you like the show, go listen to us talk about it. And don’t forget to connect with the podcast. There are a number of ways!
This time it’s with my lovely friend, Ali. I think she offers a really great perspective as she comes to the show with almost zero book knowledge. We’re both pretty chatty, so prepare yourself for 1.5 hours of kilts, conspiracies, and HANDS TOUCHING.
In case you missed it, I’ve been covering Outlander on Picture Shows & Petticoats with the help of my cousin Misti. The production is airing on Starz and there have been five episodes so far, each one better than the last in my opinion. There’s lots of buzz surrounding it and while most of the viewers right now (at least the ones I’ve connected with on Twitter or know in real life) seem to be book readers, I think it’s gaining momentum and may end up being a pretty popular show.
I’m still in the middle of the second book and it’s been a real chore to avoid spoilers after the most recent book release, but I’m managing. Book club reading is taking up a lot of my pleasure reading time, so the going has been slow. And honestly, I’m not totally invested in the second one like I was the first. The setting isn’t my favorite. Oh well. I’ll keep you updated on my progress there.
Are you watching? How are you liking it? Did you read the books?
