Overdue Episode 176: Black Beauty

May 9, 2016

Andrew Cunningham Craig Getting

It’s wall-to-wall horse talk this week, starting with a blow-by-blow analysis of the Kentucky Derby and moving on to Anna Sewell’s classic Black Beauty.

Andrew wasn’t expecting this tale to be told by a horse in the first-person perspective, but that’s what Black Beauty is. As a warning against the dangers of horse abuse and drinking alcohol, it’s actually quite effective.

This week’s show is brought to you by kinyopoetry.com and “Lonely and Horny,” a video series by Headgum co-creators Jake and Amir.
