Hello Dear Listeners,
We have missed you! To steal a term from one of our favorite authors (Christopher Moore) our day slave lives have been getting us down and keeping us from editing this podcast! But fear not, we are back with a Spooktober appropriate episode.
This episode is a throw back to one of our collective favorite movies: 2015's The Witch (or The VVitch) by Robert Eggers. This period piece set in 1600s Puritan America has a little something for everyone. For the devoutly religious, Puritans, for the devoutly satanic, Satan, for the devoutly feminist, Witches. Robert Eggers develops a wonderful atmosphere in which to set this exploration of female power, religiously motivated paranoia, and the truly brutal nature of life 300 years ago.
So join us as Katya and Laramie delve into feminism, the history of witches in America, why the woods are so scary, and also hyenas. We have just one question for you dear listeners... Wouldst thou like to live... deliciously?
Katya and Laramie
