Anno Dracula: A Victorian Vampire Clusterf*ck

Teaching My Cat To Read: The “very serious” Book Review Podcast

Jul 30 2023 • 1 hr 10 mins

Join us for a special episode of Teaching My Cat To Read, where Eli brings some beloved guests on board to discuss Kim Newman's Anno Dracula. We talk about whether vampires are always sexy, how many fun literary cameos an author can include before it gets annoying, and exactly what on earth is going on in this book. Please mind the content notes; this episode is a little heavier than usual.

Content Notes
Discussion of extreme violence, homophobia, xenophobia, suicide, ableism, sexual content and harm to animals
