Show Notes

 

Brave New World is a dystopian novel by English author Aldous Huxley. Published in 1932, it propounds that economic chaos and unemployment will cause a radical reaction in the form of an international scientific empire that manufactures its citizens in the laboratory on a eugenic basis, without the need for human intercourse.

Set in a future London, it follows the fortunes of the illegitimate son of a senior governor, who has grown up in America, outside the new empire, and who experiences a dramatic culture-clash when he has to live under its rules. The novel anticipates developments in reproductive technology, sleep-learning, psychological manipulation, and classical conditioning.

On publication, the book earned mixed reviews, but is now seen as one of the most significant novels of the 20th century, consistently ranking high in the major literary league-tables. (from Wikipedia)

Hold on to your letter sweaters, because this was an excellent episode! That’s right, neither Cecily nor Chanda have anything negative to say about this episode. We discuss Cheryl Blossom as the Avenging Angel of Riverdale, whether Cole Sprouse will return next season, The Problem with Hiram Lodge, and Cecily takes a victory lap because she was right about the identity of The Black Hood all along.

Note: The episode was previously titled "The Killing of a Sacred Deer". That title comes from Yorgos Lanthimos' and Efthymis Filippou's 2017 psychological horror film of the same name.
