Movie week! You know the drill. This week we discuss the actors and choices made by the production studio for what I (Hale) think is one of if not my absolute favorite Harry Potter movie. We kick off the episode by promoting one of our newest podcasting friends Hark! The 87th Precinct Podcast. Come join the conversation.
Now that you've heard our thoughts on the third installment in the Harry Potter series, lets dive a bit deeper into the background that inspired this text. We discuss prisons, time-travel, and werewolves, oh my! Check it out and come join the conversation.
Continuing our discussion on the hugely popular Harry Potter series, listen to our opinions on the third novel in the installment. We talk pirates and rum (don't ask), murder and murder mysteries, friendship, and justice... and fan favorite Lupin. Come join the conversation!
Join us for a discussion on the differences between the book and the show! Is season 2 a believable continuation? Were the roles casted correctly? Hear our thoughts on the prolific novel's newest adaptation, with a shoutout to our friends at Unassigned Reading Pod.
This week we talk witches, the real-life Serena Joy, and stolen children. Margaret Atwood pulled from our reality to create a world that, sad to say, could very well be our future. We'd love to hear your thoughts on any of the inspiration Atwood used to create Gilead and the world of The Handmaid's Tale. Come join the conversation!
A big shout out to The Frankenpod! Check out their promo after the episode and give them a listen!
Novelist. Poet. Critic. Essayist. Inventor. Instructor. Activist. Feminist.
That is who wrote this amazing dystopian novel. Margaret Atwood’s The Handmaid’s Tale has changed people’s lives. It has inspired resistance. Feminists everywhere have adopted the story to serve as a warning. We hear often that dystopian novels give us a glimpse of the extremes of which our society can resort. In 2018, the surveillance of 1984, technology of Brave New World, and censorship of Fahrenheit 451 have never been more prevalent. However, Atwood’s dystopian novel gives us insight into fears of limited women’s rights, and reproductive rights. This book, however unsettling it may be, is worth the read.
Stick around until the end to hear the promo of our podcasting friends, Oh No! Lit Class!
