Episode 7 - Monstrous Anti-Heroes: Grendel and Shrek

Welcome to season 2 of The Lit-Knitters! Despite our lengthy hiatus, we're back in business with a new season full of great (albeit nerdy) connections between literature and movies/TV shows/music records/anything else we randomly think of! On this episode, we discuss anti-heroes, alternative fairy-tales, and monstrous apathy in Dreamwork's 2001 animated film Shrek and John Gardner's 1971 novel Grendel. In this episode, we also introduce a new co-host, Preston Thatcher. Preston is also a fellow student with us, Sam and Jace, and we're stoked to have him on the show! Thanks for sticking with us, and let us know what you think by emailing us at litknitterspod@gmail.com or hitting us up on our social media @litknitterspod. 

DISCLAIMER: we recorded this episode about two and a half weeks ago before the coronavirus pandemic became more publicly widespread, so please view Jace's joke about the coronavirus in that light. THANKS!
