Episode 2: The Visitor

Centipedes and Slugs still hadn’t been named when this episode was recorded, but that doesn’t stop Maddie and Lydia from diving into The Visitor. They tackle the important questions like: Why does Visser 3 like cats so much? Would therapy be good for Visser 3? What is Yeerk culture, anyway? There is even some discussion of non-Yeerk matters, including Rachel and Tobias’ relationship and just how much Scholastic let Applegate and Grant get away with right from the jump. A reminder that there will be spoilers for the entire Animorphs series.
