Ep 614 – The Daughter of Doctor Moreau, by Silvia Moreno-Garcia

What if H.G. Well’s classic tale of humanimals created by a mad scientist were recontextualized in southeast Mexico? Would you find yourself saying that the Yucatan is less an island and more of a peninsula? Sure, you might say that – but why waste time on pedantry when you can engage with Moreno-Garcia’s themes of colonialism, paternalism, and class conflict!

Our theme music was composed byNick Lerangis.
