Chapter 4: I Walk the Ma-lign
Sarah, Maren and Caroline discuss the trifecta of 2022 Awards-season-maligned-women-biopics: The Eyes of Tammy Faye, House of Gucci, and Spencer. Each get the Southern Gothic marinade in topics such as "reoriented decay," femaleness as genre, disposability, and redemption -- or lack thereof. Are we supposed to "like" these women? Who knows! Who cares!

Chapter 1: Lover Meets Beloved

Prologue: Devastatingly Freudian
In the inaugural episode, Sarah, Maren, and Caroline lay out a foundation, like a soft blanket of kudzu, for what it means to use Southern Gothic as a lens. Topics include Edgar Allan Poe, rampant repression, and #daddyFaulkner. Come eat a nutmeg pancake!
