Othersode #46: Eating Owen's Cake Batter / The Haunting of Bly Manor

Grab your cake batter and badly-made tea because the Book Squad is discussing "The Haunting of Bly Manor." We talk about all of the Henry James literary connections, the (sometimes hidden) ghosts, grief and memory, and of course, love stories. Then we get into some listener feedback about "I’m Thinking of Ending Things" and catch up with what’s on the #BookSquadBlog, including a new featured bookstore, a spooky series, and Bachelorette recaps! Read along for our next #Bookpisode on "Survivor Song" by Paul Tremblay on November 2, and watch "Lovecraft Country" (HBO) for our next #Othersode on November 16.0:30 – Introductions and icebreaker 8:30 – Show introduction12:58 – Inspiration for the show21:13 – Secret ghosts24:20 – Who are these ghosts?36:50 – Time, frame narratives41:36 – Grief and trauma56:40 – Love stories1:11:47 – Ratings1:21:55 – Listener feedback1:33:00 – What’s on the blog?
