EP 8 : Frankenstein by Mary Shelley Part II We Want To Sound Smart At Parties

    • Books

In Part II of III of Mary Shelley’s 1831 classic, Frankenstein, we cast Anne Hathaway as the part of the monster, Lil Franky Jr.

We hear Ted Danson and Whoopi Goldbergs origin story & smoke too many cigarettes with Thomas Jefferson Hogg. Once we finally dive into the text, we learn about Lil Franky’s origin story. We learn that having a deer-sized brain is great for learning the history of humanity, but not so good for conflict resolution. Ending on a cliff-hanger, this episode has everything, murder, executions by the state, deep regret, origin stories from the monster, and even a Percy Bishy Shelley poem!
