Show Notes

Did a human woman give birth to a whole bunch of bunnies? Nope, it was a disturbing hoax. Join us for a discussion of man-midwives, Barbara Creed's monstrous-feminine, Dexter Palmer's novel “Mary Toft; Or, The Rabbit Queen," and, of course, Aerosmith.


Craig Renfroe's short film "Catalog" is an official selection at the Unnamed Footage Festival and will be screened at the film festival on March 25, 2023, in San Francisco.
