Better later than never forever: On today’s episode Erin introduces us to the fantasy classic The Last Unicorn. We identify with Molly Grue far too much, and talk about the transition from childhood to adult concerns. Also featured: a deep dive into the symbolism of Beagle’s original text, along with lots of love for rosy-cheeked skeletons and unicorn ladies.
