    For our 2-year anniversary (and 50th episode) we journey off the well-worn path to cover the much-requested "The Company of Wolves" by Angela Carter—both in short story and film format.

    This week, our thirst for unibrowed werewolves knows no bounds. We also dig deep into a discussion on the deeply feminine mythos, modernization, and aesthetic of Red Riding Hood. Show notes are here: https://metamashina.com/2019/10/09/episode-050-in-the-company-of-woofs/

Thank you from a fellow crone.

I’m love with this podcast because I pretty much share the same tastes in Fiction as you ladies. I never thought much about the concept of the feminine gaze and now I can’t help but examine every piece of media through that lens.
Since I’ve started listening to your podcast I’ve realized just how long I’ve been fascinated by Monster husbands (and enemies-lovers tropes) and now my poor TBR is suffering because it’s all I want to read about now.
I love you crones so much and I hope to soon donate for the enlightenment you’ve given me.

10 Miles of Peach Blossoms

You know Mia Wasikowska does play opposite Adam Driver in Tracks... also are you going to do an episode about 10 miles of peach blossoms???????

Thank you

This is a wonderful podcast and has helped me tremendously in the way I approach fiction, whether it’s consumption or creating my own. Nat, Shi, and Erin facilitate such multi-faceted conversations about stories I loved as a child and ones I’m just discovering thanks to them. This podcast is as much a service as it is entertainment and I have no doubt people who take the time to listen to their thoughtful discussions will walk away grateful. Thank you, Metamashina!
