Moby Dick — Even if you Never Read It
So many of the stories we love use Moby Dick as the example of an obsessive focus on a goal, but do you know the actual story? Moby Dick expert and all around geek Ilse joins me to talk about this book and what it has to say about disability, queerness, race, class, and so many other topics that remain relevant today.
Ilse, aka AK, (she/her) is an all around nerd who loves Star Wars, Heavy Metal, and Dungeons and Dragons. She has a degree in philosophy and a background in debate and likes to get wayyyy into the weeds on both silly and serious topics.
