What Would Danbury Do?
What Would Danbury Do?: 2 Viscount 2 Furious

Viscount Anthony Bridgerton [m44] and his wife Kate [f36] met some number of years ago when Anthony was pursuing Kate’s sister, Edwina [f32]. During the course of their courtship, Anthony, both sisters, and several of his siblings played an infamous game of Pall Mall. For reasons that are unclear but are probably related to some sort of foreplay, Anthony extends a yearly invite to the original players for a rematch. For reasons that are unclear but probably have to do with Anthony being Viscount Bridgerton and rich and powerful, they all agree.

Featuring: * Alligators * Anthony, still the boob man * The classic Freudian psychoanalytic theory, the ‘death drive’ which Rudi consistently and incorrectly calls the ‘death imperative’ * Canadian passive-aggression * Mallets as metaphors * Uncomfortable class realities * Different definitions of ‘winning’

The SSR Podcast: Episode 114: The Bad Beginning (A Series of Unfortunate Events #1) (with Kayla Graves)

A conversation about Lemony Snicket’s beloved A Series of Unfortunate Events series has been a long time coming… but it’s finally here! On Episode 114, Alli and her guest discuss the first installment, The Bad Beginning, which was published in 1999.

Much of the conversation on the episode focuses on one core question: how dark is too dark for kids? There’s discussion about why kids love the darkness in the series, as well as Snicket’s tendency to write about incompetent adults and broken legal systems… and so much more!

Kayla Graves is an essayist and educator working at the forefront of creating equitable and just urban communities. Her current series — Racism in American Cities — focuses on how various policies and events throughout American history have led to the creation of modern race relations in cities.

Episode 115: The BFG (with Christina Hammonds Reed): Roald Dahl may be a beloved children’s author, but he’s also a problematic figure. Similarly, The BFG is a beloved children’s book… but it’s not without its problems and complexities. On Episode 115 of SSR, Alli and her guest Christina Hammonds Reed break down The BFG — from its magical use of language to its xenophobic undertones, and everything in between.
