Annotation Side One - The First Severian - Interview with Michael Andre-Driussi
Listener comments ends at 35m25s If you don't want to listen to the listener feedback at the beginning, skip to there.,  No specific chapter This is Side One of our discussion with Mantis about his theory regarding Severian's description of the First Severian in the final chapter of Citadel of the Autarch.  Because Severian's reveal as Mantis's frames it has the potential to affect every chapter of "The Book of the New Sun" there's no really good chapter in which to bring it up. So we placed it here upon Severian's exile, just before Severian is thrust into the wider world.  - Links: Craig's Reddit post on the MegatheriansGoonhandz Reddit posts: one two and three and an interpretation of Eschatology and Genesis hereStephen Frug's commentsNigel's discussion of connectivity between tBotNS and A Voyage To Arcturus  - This episode is sponsored by Twist Endings. - You can also get episodes on your podcast app or on our Youtube channel.
