Ep 554 - Carmilla, by Joseph Sheridan Le Fanu (edited by Carmen Maria Machado)

Carmilla is a double-whammy: an English-language vampire novel that predates Dracula by nearly three decades, and an edit from Carmen Maria Machado that both underlines the story's gay subtext and has a bit of fun with readers while doing it. Just try not to take her notes too literally and you'll be fine, probably. 

Our theme music was composed by Nick Lerangis.
