This episode's got a tasty dash of half & half - This first end is a coffeehouse chitchat styled episode, where Cas and Teese discuss both Lamb (2021) and The Last Duel (2021) and in the latter half, Teese and Cas dive into the origins of Hanahaki and Alexandria's Genesis, two enduring fictional illnesses. Why do writers invent disease and what can they communicate in the narrative?
