1984, Part 1

1984, Part 1

“It was a bright cold day in April, and the clocks were striking thirteen…”

This is the episode in which we provide much needed context for George Orwell’s 1984, a novel that may or may not have been prophetic about some things, maybe. Not gonna lie, this episode went a little crazy, as long time listeners will know does occur from time to time on our show. But we had fun and learned a few things about the life, times, and work of George Orwell (not his real name), and we hope you can, too.
