Welcome to Episode 13, where we cover Chapters 36-38 of The Raven Boys!
While 13 is generally one of Nievita’s favorite numbers, this episode feels very unlucky indeed. We take a dark ride through the confrontation between Adam and Robert Parrish and the immediate aftermath--and while we do cry, it’s possibly not as much as we thought we would. We tackle some pretty heavy topics such as the responsibility of Adam’s mom, Ronan’s expression of his pain and frustration, the protection that white privilege affords some of the characters, and how Gansey’s own parental emotional neglect may have played in to his responses (but does not excuse his victim-blaming.) Strap in, my friends… you know it’s a tough one when Whelk is the comic relief.
WARNING: These chapters deal with the direct result of domestic abuse. Please practice self-care while listening. We love you!
