Of Sperm Whales and Sulphur Bottoms

In this very special episode, Charles and Travis revisit the Melville oeuvre, this time to discuss Redburn: His First Voyage.  This is a bonus episode, so we’ve decided to mix things up: this time, Charles leads the discussion and Travis asks the questions. Join us as we discuss two-faced ship captains, a London sex club, a thwarted date-rape attempt, and – of course – sperm whales.  In Queer and Now, Travis takes Joe Biden to task, and Charles takes a (mostly ironic) victory lap.
