WARNING: This episode contains mentions of sexual assault right from the jump because there's a lot of it in this book.
This month we discuss Candide by Voltaire. SPOILER ALERT: We hated it! Listen to find out more about the death of one-name superstar Voltaire, red sheep, and why we need Nick Cage for a project.
Also, this is the first time we've tried editing in a musical cue ( Camille Saint-Saëns Danse Macabre, for reasons that will become evident) so apologies if it sounds sloppy.
Don't read Candide if you can avoid it
