This week we cover Mary Shelley’s genre-changing novel, Frankenstein. We discuss her strange life, questions from listeners, and the weirdness of that party in Geneva.
If you’d like to drink along:
The Mary Shelly:
- 1 and 1/2 oz bourbon or fine whiskey
- 1 cup port
- Maraschino Cherry for Garnish
Contemplate the terrors of your mortality and the possibility of life after an untimely death.
