This is a very well-argued and somehow entertaining essay on not just Lolita but the disgusting American phenomenon of culturally endorsed pedophilia. I've learned a lot so far. Thank you for making this podcast.

I vaguely remember Lolita (the book) as grim and unsettling. This podcast is a fascinating and unflinching look at what it is and means.
Grim but important.

Very interesting. I remember my friend in middle school being really into this book and I felt like I was missing out, since it was a book for "cool girls".

Excellent research and story telling. The voice work and editing make it a difficult listen. More of an important listen than an enjoyable one, mainly due to the increasingly odd vocal choices for readers. Sigmund Freud as some kind of southern gentleman? WTF!? He was Austrian and his voice has been recorded...Kinsey, an American, is given an upper class British accent, let alone the voice contributors who sound like they are unedited or just unprofessional.

Finally, a deep dive into the problematic literary masterpiece Lolita. Lolita is probably the most misunderstood novel of the 20th c. Thanks for bringing this topic out of the closet. Looking forward to each podcast.

Wow.... The first episode alone made me go pick up my copy of Nabokov's novel and voraciously and ferociously begin a re-read. The podcast I didn't know I needed.
