EPISODE 014 – BELLE EPOCH

LISTEN ON ITUNESSOUNDCLOUD | YOUTUBE

The tale as old as time but timeless to us all. With special guest Chelsea (@corseque), we embark on a deep analysis into Beauty and the Beast, following it from its origins in Greek myth and 18th French Salons to its modern day film and literary adaptations. Prepare for lots of love for the monster husband trope and how these stories are subversive female power fantasies. Also, too many mentions of horns, scales, and fur to count.
