Page Two--Into Gilead


In the second episode of All In Good Storytime we discuss chapters 17-30 of Margaret Atwood's The Handmaid's Tale. We cover the ceremony, a birth, connections between bodies, visits with the commander, and intimacy. We delve deeper into Moira's character, clarify a few points about Offred's mother, analyze Luke, and trash the Commander. We also highlight how certain situations in the book are currently playing out in our society such as capitalizing on a fearful public. We end by making predictions regarding who truly runs the totalitarian regime of Gilead.

CONTENT WARNING: Episode deals with themes of sexual slavery. Tia does a swear.
