What do Kris and Tara talk about off-mic? Vegetables! On-mic, they continue to discuss vegetables, sports, Japanese shows with no angst and tons of food, as well as taking the temperature of the latest season of Drag Race (tepid so far?).
With that out of the way, the two dive into THAT EPISODE of THAT SHOW (The Last of Us) and Lee Winter’s impossible task of rehabilitating one of her worst villains.
From Kris: The Last of Us
Kris comes to us from the post-apocalypse, bearing strawberries of content! The Last of Us (HBO Max) is an adaptation of the PlayStation video game and it currently has a Game of Thrones-like grip on media right now.
It’s the story of a fungal infection that destroys the world and a hardened man tasked with transporting the only living person to resist the infection across America. And that living person? She’s a mouthy 14 year old queer girl.
From Tara: The Villains Series by Lee Winter (The Fixer and Chaos Agent)
Lee Winter never meant to explore the love life and redemption of her villain from The Red Files, but Tara’s grateful she did. In this duology (The Fixer and Chaos Agent), Winter asks tangled, thorny, interesting questions about redemption and accountability, while delivering a delicious slow burn romance. Tara loved it.
