Fire the Canon

We read the first half of the epic Arthurian romance, Sir Gawain & the Green Knight, as translated by Simon Armitage.  (If you’re here from the movie, welcome!)  Sir Gawain plays a “game” where he cuts off a guy’s head, and then that guy gets to cut off his head a year and a day later.  Why did he agree to play that game?!  Listen to find out.  Theo creates a surprising utopia.  Jackie can think, she just can’t talk.  Rachel dresses appropriately.  Topics include: Beowulf, the Trojan War, wisdom teeth removal, messy bitches who love drama, The Wizard of Oz, the Incredible Hulk, Jackie’s prejudice, the Ghost of Christmas Past, hot axes, green pubes, Berton family Christmas traditions, negging, Divergent, wodwos, Kermit cosplay, and Sausage Party.
