TMR 23.2: “Can He Help Lanark Out of Hell?” [Lanark]

As mentioned from the top, we had severe technical difficulties, so the sound quality on this is janky. (Mostly Chad’s voice is quiet, which, for many, is likely to be a relief.) Nevertheless Chad and Kaija power on, talking about “The Institute” as a metaphor, the allusions to Duncan Thaw, dragons, dragon scales as metaphor, the prologue and stories within stories, and then the opening “quest” of “Book One.”

This week’s music is “Holy Moly” by Young Fathers.
