Next weeks story is The Story Of A Painter by Ludmilla Petrushevskaya
Rated PG-13 for light swearing & joke about porn titles
Monstress is a short story about a couple in The Phillipines who make monster flicks, and how the fall of local cinema at the feet of Hollywood affects their relationship. He is the movie maker; she plays his varied, grotesque monsters. During the discussion Anais and Maya analyze whether the couple love one another and what the actual point of the story is. Gerald is frustrated by the man’s seeming lack of emotional competence and love for the woman. While Rammy enjoyed the soft relationship moments and humor. The podcast finishes with a fun horror movie quiz. There is very light swearing and an off hand joke about porn titles. It is probably fine for upper level HS and above.
