In this episode Tia Vasiliou, comics and feminism expert, comes onto the show to discuss the graphic novel Prince of Cats.
Tia Vasiliou is both a comics and feminism expert, occasional podcaster, and boss gymnast. Prince of Cats is a 2012 graphic novel by Ron Wimberly. The story focuses on Tybalt, a character from Romeo and Juliet, and is set in 1980s New York. "PRINCE OF CATS is the B side to Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet, played at an eighties block party in an NY where underground sword dueling blossomed alongside hip-hop, punk, disco, and no wave."
In this episode we discuss needing a moment of happiness before needing to record this episode, who is Ron Wemberly, remembering anything from the original play, and fatal masculine self-obsession, slowing down to read, Tia's theory on why Juliet rushed into marriage, iambic pentameter, lyra rings, our decaying flesh-suits, much more.
