Violet Evergarden: Episode 09
Sean’s always having to sync up the audio, but that’s okay because Lee is always amazing with her podcasting technique. In fact, one might go so far as to say that this show is faultless, and that’s undeniable. Take that, Ira Glass!
What begins as floundering through our complete brain, how would say, evacuations, turns into a rousing conversation about sneezes. What else would it be about? You’ve heard it here first, folks! The Stream Dream Team is breaking down the important topics of the day.
This writer jokes around, though. It’s not just a conversation about sneezing. Rather, it’s a discussion and dissection of social norms and expectations. Is it impolite to not say “bless you” after you hear a sneeze? Should we all pipe up with a wish for good health or should we all keep our traps shut?
Sean imagines a terrible dystopian future where a good portion of the world sadly dies from a sneezing flu. A band of sneezing survivors has to find a way to survive in this strange new world. They, of course, take to Las Vegas because what better place to be after the world ends than smack dab in the middle of the Nevada desert? Answer: no better place!
The pair fall into a pretty serious Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles rabbit hole and struggle to get out of it. They’re weighed down by the glut of turtle options that are currently available for all human beings to enjoy and ponder over. Somebody save them!
In what was streamed this week, stuff… went… down! Following the world-shaking revelation about major Gilbert at the end of the last episode, Violet is unmoored. She’s barely afloat in the tempestuous waters of unbridled grief. The person who taught her all she knows, indeed, her very humanity, has quite possibly been taken from her. How does one not spiral downward from that moment? How does a person go on? If you’re anything like Violet, then you’ll know that a visit from the friendly Santa of Letters is enough to bring your head up above water again.
