Prophecy Radio episode #123 has us excited to chat with Roseanne A. Brown about all things Percy Jackson and the Olympians, including season 1 and what lies ahead in season 2.

A Conversation with Roseanne A. Brown(00:07:17)

  • Welcome Rosanne! We are so excited to geek out over Percy Jackson and the Olympians season 1 with you.
  • Roseanne is very happy about how PJO season 1 turned out. And she acknowledges how hard adventures shows can be to get right.
  • We talk about all our favorite moments and characters.
  • Our most unexpected moments means we are once again gushing over Grover Underwood. (I have a feeling this is gonna keep happening, folks.)
  • It’s important to acknowledge that nothing is perfect, so we also touch on items we would change a little bit, if we had such power.
  • TYSON! TYSON! TYSON! We are all super excited to see Percy’s brother make his appearance, especially since his role is so pivotal to the story.
  • There are also tons of moments we’re looking forward to seeing, from tentpole to tender.
  • We want to see Percy working on his fighting, both swordsmanship and harnessing the power of the ocean.
  • If Percy Jackson and the Olympians inspires some competition, we hope it comes in the form of diverse mythologies. (And I mean, there’s a whole imprint’s worth just waiting for their chance in the sun.)
  • Serwa may (or may not) be coming out on November 5th, 2024, but stick here for all the latest updates, because that is one story we are DYING to get our hands on
  • We lose our cool a little, telling Rosie about how much we love the Serwa Boateng series.
  • Time to beg a little for a teaser detail or two for Serwa Boateng’s Guide to Saving the World, and Rosie kindly DELIVERS.
  • Writing a book 3 is tough work.
  • There aren’t any projects on the horizon that Rosie can tell us about right now, but she does regale us with a list of all kinds of books she’s been reading lately. (Some are adult titles, so consider yourselves warned!)
Feedback (00:47:01)

  • A HUGE thank you to everyone who has ever left us a review or a rating on their chosen podcast-listening-platform. We appreciate you all so much, and we just wanted to take a quick moment this week to make sure you know we do see them (even if we forget to check on those sometimes).
Thanks for listening, and tune in next time for episode 124, an as yet undetermined topic because we cannot make up our minds. Make sure you keep an eye on our social media as we will be letting you know about our next discussion topic there!
