203 – The Unicorn and the Wasp’s Nest

This week is another “Lucky 7” with the seventh episode of series 4. Join Deb, Erika, Katrina, and Lynne as we talk about mysteries, celebrity historicals, classism, racism, and how we deal with media created by people with views we abhor.

What do you think of “The Unicorn and the Wasp”? And how do you deal with stories created by people whose views harm you and/or people you love? Let us know in the comments!

Episode 159 – A Perfect (Roman) Match

2018 brings another new Verity! feature: Perfect Match, in which a Verity selects a classic Who story and a modern Who story that go together…for whatever reason. Join Erika, Lynne, and Tansy as we compare and contrast Tansy’s perfect match: “The Romans” and “The Fires of Pompeii”.

What ties do you see between these two stories? How has storytelling evolved between these two tales, and how does that affect the show? Let us know what you think in the comments!
