Are they villains or simply misunderstood advisors to their respective monarchs? And why are their real-life creators’ backstories so troubling? Today we discuss Morgaine (Morgan Le Fay) from “The Mists of Avalon” and Yzma from “The Emperor’s New Groove.” Also: the virtues of trigger warnings, bizarre love polygons, reconciling problematic authors, why “hags” always have transformation magic, and everyone thinks they’re the hero in their own story. Audio samples: “The Emperor’s New Groove” The Sifl and Olly Show — “Llama School” Eartha Kitt — “Santa Baby” The Lonely Island — “Cool Guys Don’t Look At Explosions” Don't disappoint the gods by missing an episode!
