The Penumbra Podcast 1.09+1.10: Second Citadel - The Head of The Janus Beast (Part 1 + 2)

It’s once again fairly late but I’ve been enjoying tpp a lot today and just really felt like continuing!

Live notes:

1.09

5 seconds into this episode and I decided to pull up transcripts because I was already struggling with the first name thrown at me

Talfryn

I love this kinda medieval/fantasy setting!

I already love their banter!

Marc is hilarious

Why is the Janus beast so disturbing to me?!?!? Something about the way it talks just makes me uncomfortable

Sir Caroline to the rescue!

As soon as she showed up to fight my gay ass just went: girl + swords = hot

I am really enjoying this immensly for some reason and I’m so glad this is a two-part episode!!!

This episode really flies by

Talfryn please don’t let yourself be convinced!!! Noooo! It’s so obviously a trap!!

1.10

Wait, can Marc really talk to Dampierre?

Or not?

A really compehensible fight scene!

Oh come on Sir Caroline! Really?

Oh gosh Talfryn is so cute!


Conclusion:

Out of all the not-Juno episodes I think I enjoyed this one the most! It could be because I’m a sucker for knights and fantasy/medievel settings but the banter between the characters was just so great! Somehow, all 3 of them were characterized so well immediately and I would probably love to hear a whole podcast just about them!

When I saw that the Part 2 of this “arc” (?) was only 14 minutes long I got really disappointed because I just wanted so much more from them! All of their struggles, that we only got to know of a little but still, they seemed so real and their interactions felt realistic in how much they revealed about themselves.

God, I love Juno and his story as much as any sane person but these short inerludes are really getting to me, too and I’m just praying for them to somehow return or at least continue to give fantastic and short stories I’d feel comfortable to show my friends when introducing them to podcasts!

Me, before the shadows on the ship: how dare you speak to my son in that way

Me, the moment hallucination Peter starts yelling at her: I don’t like her but if you insult her again I’ll fucking decapitate you

Me, during her distrust monologue (I’ve also had hallucinations): if anyone insults this baby again I swear they’re gonna get it even you Junebug.

The Penumbra Podcast 1.07+1.08: Juno Steel and The Day That Wouldn’t Die

The live notes are gonna be a bit shorter because I was on a walk while listening :)

Live notes:

1.07

Juno backstory time?!

Mick, Juno, Sasha -> friendgroup

Mick is kind of an idiot but straight up a mood

Man Juno has some trust issues…

Annie -> Sasha’s sister

uhhh… they all have some repressed trauma to deal with

Oohh that’s a good cliffhanger!


1.08

the sewers have been quite convenient so far!

Woah animals seem to have gone through quite a few steps of evolution

Who the fuck set up these sadistic and, apparently, very specific murder trials with custom monsters to boot?!?!?

MICK!!!

Why is shit getting so serious so early in the show?!?!?

Is Annie really alive?? Hallucinations???

Ok yeah, didn’t think Sasha would really kill Juno

THAT IS A FUCKED UP TEST!!!!! WHAT THE FUCK DARKMATTERS!!!!

Why are all the podcasts I listen to so emotionally mature?!?!? Holy shit?!?! Am I really about to cry!?!??!

Also, wow Juno is really gonna have to go through some character growth and I’m excited!

How is Mick the reasonable one in this conversation?!?!!! Juno listen!!!


Conclusion:

Ok so everyone seems to be super hurt and lived through a pretty fucked up childhood. And we haven’t even really gotten to any details regarding Juno’s brother but I can tell I’m gonna be a mess when we find out what happened.

Also, I really love Juno, Mick and Sasha and I hope we get to see more of them interact in the future even though, for now, they seem to not be on good terms. Especially Juno is gonna have to do some self-reflecting and maybe talk to someone about his feelings.

And how are podcasts in generall so much more emotionally mature than any other form of medium??? Like, I’ve only properly started listening to fiction/storytelling podcasts fairly recently and all of them have been so emotional and dramatic and showing real conflict while giving such good messages about healthy relationships??!?!? I’m not used to that and it hits so much more than some generic toxic relationship that is being romaticised by more mainstream stories!!!

Also, props to tpp so far regarding representation! It really shows how easy it is to include LGBT+ people, especially with Juno being non-binary which is unfortunately still a rarity (and I’m assuming even more main-cast members further down the line) and how that doesn’t always need to be a topic of conflict, at least so far! (Not that there is an issue with stories that deal with the struggles of LGBT+ people they have a merit in their own way but it’s nice to see some representation without it being made a big deal)

The Penumbra Podcast 1.06: The Coyote of the Painted Plains

So this is gonna be another non-main-story-related episode from what I know but the last one was pretty impactful so I’m looking forward to it!

Live notes:

Beau - sheriff

Mary Anne - teacher

wow Beau seems… like a very bad sheriff… and a coward

Nix - bounty hunter

Chance - bandit

Awwww Chance is so stealing to take care of the children and Mary Anne is misunderstanding SO much

Omg Mary Anne is a teacher and is gonna stay to teach!!!

Your fiancé doesn’t seem that great, just stay!

Ooohhhhh the flirting!!!!!! They already have more chemistry than Mary Anne and her fiancé!

God Beau is such a tool

Frying Pans are the penultimate weapon! Tangled is proof!

Let’s go Lesbians!!!

Beau why!!! You dumbass!

Ah yes, just two Lesbians riding into the sunset together to all of their adopted children!


Conclusion:

This was a really fun episode and I really liked the western vibe it had! Although, it wasn’t the most original story, it was really nice and cute overall!

I know these are more like short stories independent of the main plot but set in the same universe but I would love to see some of these characters like Chance and Mary Anne show up for cameos or something like that!

juno, once the whole “robot shapeshifters” thing is over: holy shit nureyev, jet told me that aliens are real ! aliens are real and they disguise themselves to look like us ! that;s so horrific what the fuck

peter “morosexual” nureyev, who literally fought and killed a MARTIAN alongside him, a martian who could change her form to look like humans:

thinking about how juno agreed to give up control to the THEIA even though that’s what happened to him with the eye and he made it VERY clear that he never wanted it to happen again … how he so hated being controlled & having his body treated as a puppet that he nearly got alessandra killed by refusing to use his eye … but he trusted rita to make the plan work … he TRUSTED her, not with his life, but with his autonomy, which is arguably far more important to juno steel … thinkin …
