Show Notes

This week, Matt and Cameron get their teeth into the incredibly action-packed Part 5 of Anna Karenina! Seriously. Even if we weren’t comparing this to two straight parts full of farming and legal procedure, it would still stand out. Throw away your farming equipment, grab your finest wedding attire, and get ready for marriages and domestic unrest and familial drama, oh my!

Major themes: Death, Honeymoonin’, Born Again Christianity

08:57 - 1967, is the year the Soviet version was released.

43:03 - For quick reference, Anna Karenina was published in 1878; What Is To Be Done? was published in 1887; and the Kreutzer Sonata was published in 1889.

50:23 - Now, belatedly, you get the joke from the Format Change episode.

51:14 - Whomp whomp.

The music used in this episode was “soviet march,” by Toasted Tomatoes. You can find more of their work on Bandcamp and YouTube.
