A Pod Has No Name: The His Dark Materials Finale Delivers the Goods

Five months ago in June, APHNN host Tom Stinson had the idea to podcast on the His Dark Materials series. Three books, one season of HBO television, and many podcast episodes later, here we are. It’s been quite a ride! In our latest pod, Shane and Tom recap and react to the final two episodes of the His Dark Materials season, as well as:

  • The evolution of Mrs. Coulter
  • Lyra Silvertongue makes her on screen appearance 
  • The Iorek VS Iofur fight…let’s talk about it
  • James McAvoy brings a believable and humanizing version of Lord Asriel to life
  • Scene by scene thoughts on the finale 
  • Thoughts on the season as a whole and looking ahead to what we might see next season!
  • What’s next for APHNN

Covering His Dark Materials has been an incredible experience and when Season Two rolls around you can find us right back here releasing episodes. Thank you to everyone who has followed along with us over the past several months. It means the world to us, sincerely. In the meantime, stay tuned to see what we do for our next project. We have lots of interesting ideas floating around, and will be posting updates in the near future. If there’s any fantasy content you’re just dying for us to cover…be sure to let us know!
