Ollie and I talk Book 2 of the 1818 Edition of “Frankenstein!” This week, The Monster shares his side of the story, we get some thematically important backstory to an otherwise unimportant character and The Monster gets all whiny and “dudebro-y” about needing a woman. It’s gross!
Welcome to our Halloween Book Club! This week, we take you through Book 1 of the 1818 edition of “Frankenstein” the BOOK! It’s a real autumn read-a-long and we hope YOU read . . . along. Really, we love this book. Join us, won’t you?
It’s a BONUS EPISODE! No, I haven’t forgotten about the whole “bi-weekly” thing, I swear. But, Ollie’s friend Lil watched “Freaks” and really wanted to talk about it! So . . . I have no part in this. Give it a listen!
Things get emotional up in here as we talk Jorge Gutierrez’s “The Book of Life” from 2014. Del Toro helped Gutierrez get this homage to Mexican culture off the ground and Ollie and I are sure glad he did. We get to talk about culture, death, family and cry cry cry. It’s good for the soul!
