Pat and Sam are joined by guest Matt Bird in an episode returning to Margaret Atwood’s The Handmaid’s Tale. With the success of the series on Hulu, and certain recent political developments, Atwood’s frightening vision of the future has attained a new place in the public consciousness. In this episode the panel compares the novel to the television series and discusses the odd choice of music, the wisdom of softening Gilead’s racist ideology, and the casting of talented actors who are younger than their book counterparts. Check out the earlier “Atwood’s Dystopia” episode from November 2015 in which only the novel is discussed for further commentary on Margaret Atwood’s new classic.
