Show Notes

This week, Matt and Cameron continue the Summer of Anna Karenina with Part 2 of Leo Tolstoy’s canon-defining work Anna Karenina. Come join us as Anna reveals her affair to her husband, Kitty finds (and then quickly loses) religion, and Levin...thinks about farming. He also chastises his peasants for farming not the way he wants them to. Scintillating stuff. Also, Sativa’s still on the bread thing like half a year later. There are a lot of fun details to go over, so tune in!

Major themes: Anna = Frou-Frou?, Tolstoy not being terribly self-aware, FARMING

04:46 - This is a common Slavic folk medicine method, rubbing spirits on someone’s chest. I have it on good authority from a Ukranian friend of mine that it actually seems to help with congestion.

07:07 - Take a shot every time I say ‘Betty’ instead of Betsy.

07:54 - Don’t you dare clip that out of context.
