Episode 82: Grey Sister



We’re back after a brief hiatus with our first ever Live Cultures sequel episode. Matt picks Mark Lawrence’s second novel in his Book of the Ancestor series, Grey Sister. We’re happy to catch up with the same happy go lucky Ninja Nuns we met in the first book (at least the ones that weren’t brutally murdered)! In which: We discuss giant celestial moon mirrors, demons, puzzle boxes, and why you should care about shadows.

Note: The audio at the very beginning and then also Matt’s audio sucks on this episode and you may need to turn up your volume, I apologize for his sound quality. I still think the content is worth listening to till the end, especially for our recommendation and discussion of “The Terror”.

Episode 73: Dune (Mini Series)


The siblings are discussing Matt’s pick, the definitely not at all cheesy 2000 Syfy (then still Scifi) mini series Dune. And we discuss everything you didn’t realize you wanted to know, including giant spice worm human god hybrids!

Would this show make any sense at all to someone who hadn’t read the book or would it just be a mad fever dream of BRIGHT blue eyes, oddly deep voiced women, worms, and fat men? Also, just how ashamed should Scifi be of their CGI? Get your spice fix and give us a listen!

Episode 22: Fulgrim



Brutal carnage! Xenocide! Giant concrete monster Gods! And of course, snake demons! ¬†What do Malcolm and I think of Matt’s pick from the Warhammer 40k universe, the novel¬†Fulgrim by Graham McNeill? Listen to find out, you may be surprised. Hint, there’s way less angry shouting than the last time Matt picked a book, and ultimately peace reigns supreme. (Unlike in the book.)
