The Episode That Changed The Course of Their Relationship: Normal People Episode Eleven
We are back with Episode Eleven!!! Sorry for the delay, unfortunately, we had to re-record this episode as the audio quality from the first take sucked. In this episode, we discuss character development and maturity, with a focus on how far they all have come. While at the same time we focus on the fact that Marianne has yet to have the opportunity to work through her trauma, which has prevented a lot of her personal growth. Hope you enjoy!!

We're Back, They're Back, and Everyone is Happy: Episode Five
Finally, after a two week break we are so happy to be releasing episode five of The Normal People Podcast. Episode five throws us for a loop, and has us grasping for straws as to whether Marianne and Connell will get back together. As well, episode five gives us a degree of communication that we have yet to have seen from the pair so far, which potentially shows a new degree of maturity that will hopefully alter their relationship for the better.  Thank you for listening!
