This week, Asher and Nancy jump the gun on their own timeline (once again) and hop on over to the realm of film adaptation analyses!
Will James Whale's 1931 classic monster flick fare well beneath their cynical gazes?
Will they cope with minor superfluous changes, such as Victor Frankenstein being rennamed Henry Frankenstein, and Henry Clerval becoming Victor Moritz?? ... Probably not. Enjoy!

Podcast cover

We take a break from our slow and steady book analysis to do the thing we originally intended to do - huzzah!

In this episode we look at "I, Frankenstein", a 2014 action fantasy film from the creators of Underworld, directed by Stuart Beattie. The setting is somewhere in Europe in the present or near future, the Creature is inexplicably American-accented, and indiscreet Melbourne location-shooting may negatively affect your suspension of disbelief.

A while ago, we started brainstorming ideas for a cultural criticism podcast. Our only solid idea was a themed month dedicated to Frankenstein (the novel and its media adaptations). So we followed our hearts and made a 100% Frankenstein-focussed podcast (ideal for students studying the novel, literary nerds, or anyone really).

Without further adieu - or any regard to public demand or interest - here is The Postmodern Prometheus podcast!
