If we sound tired it's because we just finished a great convo with Bekah, Heidi and Julie as we discussed this week's episode of Outlander: The Doldrums.

To be honest, it was not the most exciting episode for us, but somehow we stretched our convo into an hour and had an amazing chat happening online with those listening live on Twitter using the hashtag #Hangoutlander and from the HILARIOUS You Tube Commenters!

From confusion to the setting of where the port was, to feeling a bit icky about Fergus and Marsali, the convo was all over the place. Plus @Purelyamuse on Twitter gave us our mantra that we're adopting for the Show:

Let's Willoughby the Hell out of the Rape Culture on Outlander

Thanks for listening! We love your hate AND love comments!

Hi guys! Welcome back to the Totally Normal Podcast Episode 55! This is HangOutlander and we're discussing Episode 308 The First Wife.

On the podcast today is me, Nikki along with Beth and Heidi

We jump right into Jamie and Claire's lovers quarrel and of course Leery to decides to bust in on a good thing. No thanks to jenny who called her. cause of COURSE we talk about Jenny who according to Beth might just be a Rodan and Fields consultant because she;s that annoying. I think Claire deserves it just a bit though!

 
Anyway, enjoy and we'll see you next week for Episode 309 The Doldrums!

This week on the Totally Normal Podcast #54, we're bringing you something totally different.


Just Kidding. It's exactly the same as always, and we're talking OUTLANDER episode 307: Cream of Mint.

It's a delicious milk-based soup with a minty tinge.

No it's not. But it IS a great place to hide a body!

Our crew this week was small but loud-- Beth, Bekah and Emily chatted with EVERYONE on the internet as we discussed how most of us did NOT love this episode.

Come out Outlander- bring us the Jamie and Claire we love!

Join us next Monday LIVE at 10 pm ET / 7 pm PST as we count down yet another week of Outlander without turtle soup (That episode airs Nov 26)

Thanks for joining us for The Totally Normal Podcast Episode 53. We are diving STRAIGHT into a discussion of the most highly anticipated episode of Outlander Season 3: A. Malcolm i.e. The Print Shop Episode!

Since this episode aired, it has sparked a BONFIRE of controversy in the fandom. It's almost like fans forgot those sex scenes from Season 1 played on a tv at KFC!

We still have SO many thoughts about this episode, and we're glad you're here with us to discuss it.

The Totally Normal Podcast Episode 50 is here! We made it to 50 Episodes!

This podcast covers Hangoutlander, Outlander Episode 304: Of Lost Things. Our panel included Nikki, Beth, Tiff and Amy, and we discuss how this episode might possibly be the BEST episode yet in season 3 and it’s definitely in contention to be one of our favorite Outlander episodes EVER.

We discuss the adaptation from book to film and we thank Starz for changing that problematic scene with Geneva and Jamie!

Plus we discuss about how Willy looks NOTHING like Jamie- the awesome Isobel and well... some of the less great moments. And we get real REAL about our Outlander expectations!

Thanks for listening!

Welcome to the Totally Normal Podcast Episode #47 Hangoutlander 301— we are back with the First live recap episode of Outlander Season 3. 

We have to be honest- we recorded this almost 2 weeks ago and have completed FAILED at getting this podcast up in time. We are so sorry! 

But back when we recorded this, Bekah and Nikki were together on one couch in LA and joined on camera with Beth and Julie- the gang was back together again! It was like we were just sitting on one of our beds at Comic Con, albeit less drunk on Bud Light than one of us was back in July. Spoiler: That was Bekah.

This chat is probably the most love you’ll ever hear us give Outlander— on Hangoutlander anyway! 

Speaking of Outlander love- our website http://Thats-Normal.com is killing it with Outlander coverage lately, especially as we’ve been rolling out Nikki’s videos and coverage from her set visit last Fall of Outlander in Scotland.  Yes— in case you missed that… We got to visit the Outlander set in Scotland!

It’s episode 42 of The Totally Normal podcast, and the 5th edition of our live hangout, In the Waterweeds where we discuss Diana Gabaldon’s third outlander novel Voyager before season 3 of the Outlander series airs on Starz in September.

This conversation is the perfect marriage of our Boozy Book Club and our Outlander chats and if you're just joining us, make sure you start at the beginning with In the Waterweeds 1

This convo is all about the trauma that happens when Laoghaire comes back on the scene and what it means for Claire AND what it means for US as readers emotionally! And we dive into why Diana did some of the things she did in this section of Voyager.

 

Join our team Beth, Bekah, Nikki and Karen as we really get in the waterweeds with Voyager!

Subscribe and RATE US on iTunes because last we checked, the only rating was a 1 star who didn't like "6 Drunk outlander Analysts" WHAT?!

Hey guys! It’s episode 41 of The Totally Normal podcast, and the 4th edition of our live hangout, In the Waterweeds where we get deep …. so deep … in the slippery waterweeds of Diana Gabaldon’s third outlander novel Voyager.

This time we are getting ever so super romantical with the big event of Voyager - the reunion between Jamie and Claire in A. Malcolm Printer’s print shop. We have thoughts about Willoughby, Jamie’s forthrightness, the plethora of hijinks and of course … reunion sex.

Join Beth, with Bekah, Courtney, and Karen as we navigate these tangly waterweeds. (We've officially grossed ourselves out with that innuendo.)

Also, join us next time on Feb 27th at the same Totally Normal time - that’s 10pmEST/7PT - LIVE for the next edition of In the Waterweeds on Part VII of Voyager  - back to Lallybroch.  

We’ll have much more to talk about, including the newest Outlander news - the season 3 premiere happening in SEPTEMBER of 2017. Yikes. Thanks so much for listening, everyone! Subscribe and enjoy!

Welcome back to Episode Three of In The Waterweeds where we re-read Diana Gabaldon’s Voyager, book 3 in the Outlander series. This week we're joined by Nikki, Karen, Amy and Julie who happen to be the biggest Willie and Geneva fans we could find.

JUST KIDDING!

This week we covered Parts 4 and 5 or chapters 12-23. We spent about half of this on the troublesome Geneva chapters and Claire’s preparations to head back in time and Nikki learned that of all the people in the Outlander books, she wants to hang out with the Abernathy’s.

Next time we’ll be reading parts 6 and 7 aka chapters 23-39… and we've got one word for you: PRINT SHOP! Join us Monday February 13th at 10 pm EST LIVE on You Tube!

Enjoy and see you next time!

Welcome back to Episode two of our Podcast In the Waterweeds where we revisit Diana Gabaldon’s Voyager, the third book in the Outlander series. We’re re-reading the book before the new season of Outlander starts this spring!

This week we’re joined by the biggest Lord John Gray fans we could find: Nikki Pierce, Beth Thorne, Julie Perino and Courtney Morse. JK they’re writers at That’s Normal and were forced to be here to talk about JAMMF.

We cover chapters 7-13 in this episode including, but mostly just a bunch of chapters about J - A - I - L and the hijinks that Jamie gets himself into by going on ambiguities with Lord John and playing chess in his private chambers. Sounds like doing HARD TIME TO US. CHECK MATE.

Join us January 30th for Episode 3 of In The Waterweeds where we discuss Part 4, Chapters 14-17 The Lake District AKA THE G-WORD.

Enjoy and see you next time!
