Episode 89: Normal People (2020)

Are you normal people? Well, if so (and even if not) this two part episode discussion on the BBC+Hulu miniseries Normal People is just for you! Based on a book of the same name by Sally Rooney, we dive deep into the world of this character driven miniseries as well as the book. We talk passionately about Marianne, Connell and their romance for hours. No, we’re not kidding, we had a lot to say and even now we feel like we left some things out.

Since we had so much on our mind we decided to divide our discussion into two separate parts and subchapters. Unfortunately we did not have the time to dedicate an entire subchapter to Connell’s chain but there’s always 2021.
