For the second Halloween in a row, four innocent podcasts wandered into the woods and were confronted by the dasterdly Mephisto! This year, however, the lord of the dread does not force the podcasters to revisit his own horrible mini-series from the 80s. No, this year, it is a glorious revisiting of Neil Gaiman's classic Sandman arc, Dream Country.
In this episode, which is part 3 of the crossover, Jon and Maggie from Married with Comics join Sean to discuss Neil Gaiman and Charles Vess' intersectional story of Shakespeare, Dream, the Fey Folk, and the power of story to preserve and destroy what we love.
What a great episode! Great secret questions, and excellent discussion of the issue. The three of you are great together, making for a great show! Kudos!ReplyDelete
For me, I don't like reading Shakespeare. It loses me. But. I ADORE live productions! I'll be laughing at jokes that nobody else in the audience gets. Or maybe I just don't understand the line. I don't care, that's how I enjoy Shakespeare.
And yes, West Side Story. My folks had the album, and we listened to it a lot when I was a kid. The first production I saw of was NOT the movie, but a local high school performance, and our high schools had fantastic shows, so it was excellent. That show was great. And one of my great joys playing bassoon in band was learning the riff for "Cool".
This issue was simply gorgeous. I have seen a production of Midsummer's, which makes this story all the better. Loved it.
Till nest time, my fiends-I mean-friends. Yes. Friends... heh-heh-heh-hahahahahah!
