Fangirl Happy Hour, Episode #4 – “Bees Don’t Lie”

This week on Fangirl Happy Hour, Ana and Renay read Karen Memory by Elizabeth Bear and squeal about adorable romances and competent ladies. Then, they strap on gravity rollerblades and grab their toilet brushes to discuss the latest film from the Wachowski’s, Jupiter Ascending. Lastly, they gird their loins and face the tough reality that is Agents of SHIELD S2, and pull apart their reactions to the first half of the second season as the show prepares to return from hiatus.
