Clare and Hannah dive down the rabbit/hobbit hole to discuss their favorite childhood books, and marvel at how trippy old cartoons are.
Our favorite childhood books are:
Watership Down by Richard Adams
Gnomes by Will Huygen and Rien Poortvliet
The Tale of Peter Rabbit by Beatrix Potter
Interesting: Hobbits, rabbits, and gnomes all live in holes in the ground. Why do all of our childhood favorites revolve around subterranean creatures? We’ll have to mention this to our therapist.
In this episode we discuss “the idea of autumn,” as described by C.S. Lewis, the Danish idea of Hygge, or “coziness,” and the Japanese concept of wabi-sabi, the beauty to be found in impermanent things. We also geek out about Legend of the Five Rings, and Augustus Gloop gets an honorable mention for some reason.
