Fire the Canon

Oh look, our 101th episode! In celebration, we kind of just continued doing our thing. It’s what we do best. We give a mini Stoker bio and wrap up the final 9 chapters of Dracula, and things get gayer and gayer. Rachel won’t stop ringing her own bell. Theo revels in life post-sexual awakening. Jackie finally takes control, to disastrous effect. Topics include: child brains, staging a play for copyright reasons, nerdgasms, being American and doing t*rrorism, special dirt, Oscar Wilde’s sodomy trial, the Red-Headed Giant, the Lair of the White Worm, the meaning of the word ‘barmy’, a rapid response party no one came to, breaking your back in a stupid way, the ship of Theseus, an extremely enthusiastic murder-promise, train fiends/friends, a woman doing a man thing, a man doing a woman thing, a man doing a nothing.

Content warnings: homophobia, violence, LOTS of shipping logistics
