    FLASHBACK: "Lolita" creator Jamie Loftus shares her podcast obsessions

    FLASHBACK: "Lolita" creator Jamie Loftus shares her podcast obsessions

    This week we're re-releasing one of our fave episodes from May 2021.

    You may know our guest today, Jamie Loftus, from one of her many podcast endeavors. My Year in Mensa, The Bechdel Cast, Lolita and most recently The Aack Cast. This week she stops by to share her fave pods and talk about her deep dive into Vladimir Nabokov's Lolita.

    What do you think of when you hear Lolita? Heart-shaped sunglasses? Lana del Rey? Romance? Critics have called it a great love story. But look deeper into Vladimir Nabokov's novel and you might instead see a cautionary tale full of predatory behavior told by an unreliable narrator. So why does that name still conjure images of love and lollipops? You might remember host Jamie Loftus from My Year In Mensa (featured on our recommendation chain) or from The Bechdel Cast. She first learned about Lolita at age twelve and has had a complicated relationship with it ever since. That relationship inspired her to create Lolita Podcast, a deep dive into the history and cultural legacy of Lolita. Jamie joins Elamin this week to talk all things Lolita Podcast. And she brought along some of her favorite podcasts to play for us!

    Featuring: Lolita, You're Wrong About, There are no girls on the internet.

    As a note before you listen: Jamie and Elamin's conversation touches on mature themes, including child abuse and pedophilia. Please take care while listening.

    Cosy stories just in time for the holidays

    Cosy stories just in time for the holidays

    We’ve started a new yearly tradition around here: bringing you cosy podcasts to pair with your holiday plans. Whether you’re cooking, travelling or snuggled up by the fire, you need stories as comforting as your favourite hot drink.

    Up first: what’s the secret to making a Christmas hit? A songwriter and a musicologist do a deep dive on “White Christmas.”

    Later, the advice you might be craving: how to find gifts for the men in your life (even if they won’t tell you what they want).

    And how did the white meat vs. dark meat debate get started anyway? Originally one of them wasn’t even an option.

    Our whole team wishes you a safe and happy holiday! And if you have a cosy winter podcast to recommend, we’d love to hear about it.

    Featuring: Switched On Pop, Man Up, Planet Money, Memory Palace, The Fridge Light.
