Episode 134: The Bell Jar


Listeners, how do you set the mood? Usually, it’s some candles, a little Marvin Gay, and some chocolate. For the Longbox, the only foreplay we need is a live reading of Silvia Plath’s The Bell Jar. This might be a comics podcast but depressing literary classics are what tends the loins of this show. Here’s to hoping you use this episode to spice things up with your partner!
