S1 Ep 4: We Have Always Lived in the Castle by Shirley Jackson

Well folks, buckle in for an extra-long, extra-rambling episode! We get pretty engrossed in our discussion of Shirley Jackson’s We Have Always Lived in the Castle, and TBQH, our bowl of prompts kinda goes out the window.
But fear not! Well, fear a little. Shirley Jackson is, after all, the goddess of terror. This is a gloriously creepy, Gothic tale of sisterhood, anxiety, murder, madness, revenge, and…preserves? 
Our standard spoiler alert stands, but this time multiply it by about a thousand. Definitely, definitely read this one before listening! You do not want this story spoiled.

Content warning for discussions of mental illness, murder, and suicide.
