Black Sails: Seasons 1 and 2 with Rachel

Black Sails: Seasons 1 and 2 with Rachel

June 17, 2019

Sometimes screaming "try this thing!" pays off, like when Rachel finally watches Black Sails with Tricia after a year of heckling.  Together they discuss Rachel's refusal to learn any characters' names (except one) despite liking the show, themes of monsters and civilization and shame, and the unique ways in which Black Sails creates queer characters and relationships.  

Season 1 and 2 ONLY.  

So far.

All my wildest dreams were realized when I went to my first Comic Con - the cosplay! the merch! the unabashed nerdiness! I found my home and I'm already counting down the days until next year's...will I see you there!?

This Week in TTT #2

February 24, 2019

This week, I talk about BOOKS (Akata Witch, Any Old Diamonds, Here There Be Gerblins, Check Please), I talk about MOVIES (Colette, A Simple Favor, LEGO Batman), and I talk about TV SHOWS (Conan Without Borders, season 12 of It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia, and season 1 of Broadchurch).  At one point, I remember a particularly hilarious scene in a show and can't stop laughing!  Enjoy.  <3

Traveling Alone: Mongolia

Traveling Alone: Mongolia

July 16, 2018

I'm Trish and I think you should TRY THIS THING: specifically, traveling alone to Mongolia.  Alright, that is an extremely specific recommendation, but I think my stories of sleeping on strangers' floors and realizing Queen Amidala's style is based on traditional Mongolian dress will convince you to consider it.

Share your stories of traveling alone, to Mongolia or elsewhere, with me on Twitter @TryThisThingPod or email me at trythisthingpod@gmail.com
