Page Three--The Darkness Within; Or Else the Light


In the third episode of All in Good Storytime, we discuss the ending of Margaret Atwood's The Handmaid's Tale. We cover the sex club called "Jezebels", witness a particicution, and see forward to the year 2195. We discuss the importance of love as an escape from loneliness or as an act of rebellion, delve into the concept of women controlling women, and analyze the structure of the final "historical notes." We end by tallying up how many times Offred discusses eggs. Also, we're a Natalie Portman podcast now?

CONTENT WARNING: Discussions of sexual slavery, rape.
