Show Notes

This week, Matt and Cameron cover Part 8 of Anna Karenina, the FINAL section of this incredibly wonderful novel. Although you may expect this story to end with Anna’s death—a belief we would understand given both every movie adaption and the fact that this novel is named after her—life goes on for the other characters. So join us as we cover the final journey of the most important character of part ll: Levin’s brother, Sergei. Oh, and I guess we find out what happens to the other characters, too.

03:10 - If I was more cultured, I would have recognized the label as the painting “Busy Time For the Mowers,” by Grigoriy Myasoyedov.

04:03 - I actually did not have a chance to break this one out for this episode, but keep an eye out for it in future episodes!

06:34 - The Serbo-Turkish Wars

12:26 - Depending upon how you look at it - and by “at it,” I mean any definition of materialist philosophy - none of the philosophers that Levin mentions are materialists. I studied political philosophy, sue me.

29:50 - You can tell I’ve read a lot of Camus in my time.

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