Two friends and academics recap classic literature and take it off its pedestal. In our seventeenth episode, we go back to the first major English work: Beowulf. So, hwæt, dummies! Join us if you like endless gift giving interspersed with the most disgusting charnel-house violence possible, if your ideal hero a seven-foot tall wino, or if you think a poem itself can be a lesbian.Cover art © Catherine Wu.Episode theme: Alexander Nakarada, 'Catalyst'.
