Page Five--Conspiracy Theories


In the fifth episode of All in Good Storytime, we discuss the next two sections of Annihilation by Jeff VanderMeer. We continue following the biologist's mission into Area X which has cost the rest of her teammates their lives. We question the origins of the eerily humanoid plants and animals that inhabit Area X, share predictions about the biologist's nickname "ghost bird," discuss the meaning of the "brightness" that infects the biologist, investigate the meaning of the lighthouse, and finish by analyzing similarities between "The Lorax" and "Princess Mononoke."

CONTENT WARNING: Discussions of suicide.
