Since we’ve watched Amanda’s favorite vampire movie, it seemed like a good time to submerge ourselves in all things vampire. We touch on the vast history of vampire folklore and tradition, then dive into some of our favorite examples of vampire media. 

This week, Amanda recommends Blood, Bones, and Butter by Gabrielle Hamilton and Burn the Ice by Kevin Alexander. 

Content Warning: This episode contains conversations about suicide, death, physical assault, child endangerment/death, miscarriage, body horror, mentions of racism and anti-Semitism, and prejudice based on congenital disorders.
