While we are releasing new episodes, it is important to remember that the BLM movement is still going. It is not a trend, and we will not treat it as such. To that end, we’d like to share a list of resources for our listeners to check out so they can stay informed, take action, and keep fighting the good fight.

Jekyll and Hyde Recommendations

Book Cover of The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll & Mr Hyde, by Robert Louis Stevenson

Erin

The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde is a book focused on the duality of man and the constraints that society puts on people. If you want to read more materials that explore this concept, Heart of Darkness by Joseph Conrad tackles similar themes as his protagonist journeys from western society into the Congo. The differences between society and man’s primal instincts are explored in this expedition.

One Thousand and One Arabian Nights Recommendations

Book Cover of One Thousand & One Arabian Nights

Claire

An Adaptation for Your Consideration: Skip Disney’s Aladdin (though fun) and watch the 2000 Hallmark miniseries, Arabian Nights! It’s the most comprehensive adaptation I’ve personally found, as a tv miniseries let’s Scheherezade tell multiple tales just as far as run-time goes, but it is also very fun! It’s got some questionable 2000s graphics and some casting choices as well, but for the most part, I really do think it’s a respectable retelling!

Journey to the Center of the Earth Recommendations

Erin

One interesting recommendation I have for anyone who enjoyed Journey to the Center of the Earth is the Disney film Atlantis: The Lost Empire (2001). It builds on a similar premise of an imaginative exploration into a lost realm. There is a fun cast of characters and very cool stylized inventions. And it was inspired by the works of Jules Verne, so while not a direct adaptation, it does capture a similar vibe and experience.

Frankenstein Recommendations

Book Cover of Frankenstein

Claire

A Movie Adaptation for Your Consideration: It just doesn’t get better than the 1931 Frankenstein, the  monster movie of all monster movies. This flick popularized the idea of the monster as a green dude with bolts in his neck, and was so iconically played by Boris Karloff that no image of the monster has ever been able to overtake or even hold a candle to the cultural influence wrought by Karloff’s shambler. Truly unmissable!
