Episode 3 – Race, Religion & The Revelations of Mother Abagail

We are over 400 pages into Stephen King’s epic novel The Stand, and we’re still meeting new characters. Among them is Mother Abagail, whose introduction and backstory we finally receive here. In this episode, Mike Flanagan, Tananarive Due, Anthony Breznican, and host Jason Sechrest discuss chapters 43-49 of The Stand, analyzing the roles that race and religion play in the novel. Special guest Steven Barnes (New York Times bestselling author, screenwriter and educator) joins the asylum for this very special episode.
