Episode 42 - The Monk

Two friends and academics recap classic literature and take it off its pedestal. In our forty-second episode, we get dark and dirty with Matthew Lewis's 1796 'Male Gothic' masterpiece, The Monk. Abby shows off her Bible learnin', Daniel speaks (and slurps) in tongues, and both of them scream forever into the void.
