Show Notes

Content warning: there will be a brief mention of rape from 12:20 to 12:28. 

This week, Matt and Cameron get into their tuxes for a Devil’s Ball celebrated all the way from across the skies to the distorted apartments of Moscow, covering chapters 19 through 25 of Mikhail Bulgakov’s The Master and Margarita. They’ll be talking sex, they’ll be talking fairytale morality, and you bet they’ll be talking about dismembered heads. All in all, fairly normal things when you’re celebrating with hell’s annual ball.

Major themes: Eroticism as individuality, fairytales as moral clarity, alternative afterlives
