Episode 164 – Monsters

After several episodes with either more or less than the three main hosts, Grant, Peter, and Jenny finally get to sit down together and talk about monsters just in time for Halloween! First, though, there’s a bit of catching up to do, and a delightful question from Patreon supporter Richard Lorenz who asks a simple, seasonally-appropriate question: “Favorite holiday?”

Once our Scripture’s read, we dive into monsters, and specifically monsters as representations of the monstrous and of the diseased. We touch on what few monsters appear in Scripture, and then run through a number of classic monsters and terrific archetypes to discuss them. We also talk a bit about monsters as representations of the ‘other.’ Enjoy!

Also mentioned in this episode: “Action Oriented Monsters” by Matthew Colville; E. E. “Doc” Smith’s Lensman series; and Kei-Con.

Scripture: Job 41:1-10, 1 Samuel 28:8-13, 1 Corinthians 10:17-22
