Moby Dick was a Sperm Whale!

In this episode, we discuss Herman Melville’s seminal work, Moby Dick.  It’s the story of an unlikely love affair between Ishmael, a young, naive New Yorker, and Queequeg, a swarthy islander with an impressive harpoon.  Oh, there’s also a whale and a captain with a grudge.  But really, we’re just here for Ishmael and Queequeg.  We also take a look at Melville’s relationship with author Nathaniel Hawthorne.  Enjoy!
