E64: 1984 Part 1, Chapter 6

This is our sixth episode in our longer series on Nineteen Eighty-Four by George Orwell. In this episode, we get into the subject of dystopia and sexuality. Sexuality is an important theme in literature and in what it means to be human, and in our closer look at Nineteen Eighty-Four, this chapter ambushes us with it, as it is the most . . . noteworthy feature of an otherwise boring chapter. Dystopia does strange things to human sexuality. This topic will be coming back as we go further through Orwell’s classic dystopia, so you’ll be hearing more from us on this one!

E63: 1984 Part 1, Chapter 5

Happy New Year! This is our fifth episode in our longer series on Nineteen Eighty-Four by George Orwell. We go with Winston to lunch. We look at the instinctual revolt against the conditions of life in Airstrip One, see that the brains of the Party hate the hearts, and . . . oh my goodness . . . was that another instance of someone being able to read FACES???
