Two Month Review #7.6: Radiant Terminus (Chapters 17-19)
With just Chad and Brian on this week’s episode, the show turns almost full superhero. We get Chad’s weirdly specific—and unnerving—Volodine-influenced dream. We get to see Samiya Schmidt transform into a raging version of Captain Marvel/Banshee. We get to see Kronauer assume his role as the one chosen to take down Solovyei. Brian and Chad also talk about the influence of language and ideologies on the characters, “cock’s language” and “to rut,” and speculate about just who is dreaming the dreamer.
As always, you can watch these episodes live on our YouTube channel the day before they’re released in podcast form. The next episode will be recorded live on Wednesday, March 5.
This season’s music is all from Mother Earth’s Plantasia by Mort Garson, which is Moog music for plants. This week you can hear “Rhapsody in Green.”
