Walkthrough Episode 11: walking eps 18 and 19

In this episode Layla speculates about who the traitor in our group might be, and Amal walks past a disturbing art installation. At the Ottawa City Hall. We’re going to put that under a cut, since it involves a lot of dead birds. Here’s the Ottawa City Hall Heritage building for everyone who prefers not to see dead birds!

It’s the SPOOOOOOOOKY spoilercast! Amal and Julia race through the spoiler talk in this quick discussion, but there’s enough time for Amal to present her brilliant revelation about what all is up with ep 16 of The Walk.

Walkthrough Episode 9: Walking eps 14 and 15 of The Walk

Sweet sucking peat bog, listeners, it’s episode 9! We meet an American! Emma has two love interests! Layla’s trust chart may be shifting!

Julia walked around the Mt. Holyoke campus, which was gorgeous, and which also contains one Lawrence House.

Amal walked around Winterlude in Ottawa, where there were SUPER IMPRESSIVE ice sculptures!

We talked about disaster tourism and volunteering. These are a few pictures of Julia’s volunteering in Louisiana after Hurricane Katrina. The Red Cross vest and the major devastation flooded road are from September of 2005 just after the hurricane hit. The one building a porch is from July of 2007. Hurricane Katrina did a lot of damage that is still being fixed twelve years later.

Walkthrough Episode 7: Walking eps 10, 11, and challenge 4

We’re back with an actual walking episode! Layla continues to love and trust Charlie, except when she doesn’t!


All three of us reminisce about trouble our younger sisters got us into, Amal tells us all about Irn Bru, and Julia and Amal geek out over Northanger Abbey. Here’s the amazing Irn Bru ad Amal told us about:

This episode is generally a bit off the rails, but the important thing is that Layla still has theories! MANY theories! Unfortunately none of them include any ideas about who Walker actually is.

Walkthrough Episode 6: WTFthrough!

Hellooooooooo, listeners! WE ARE BACK! After a hiatus which included life changing and world changing events of the good and bad varieties, we RETURN. This was a hard episode for us. We tried it once and then had to scrap that and re-record. This episode is just to tell you about where we’ve been and what’s up (with, of course, a little discussion of exercise and Naomi Alderman/Six to Start games, because, hey, we’re us!), but NEXT TIME there will be more episodes of The Walk!

This is the painting Amal was mentioning in connection with Walter Benjamin and Rabih Alameddine. Also, Layla mistakenly called Juan Gabriel Vásquez by the wrong name, but this is who she saw reading!
