Episode 16: Decadent Little Baby
See Also is a weekly dispatch that connects the dots of pop culture, with plenty of further reading and ideas to Add To Cart – or at least Open in New Tab.
This week, Kate and Brodie dish up a buffet of recent TV recommendations, including I Love That For You, Queer as Folk, Only Murders in the Building and Stranger Things. They draw essential links to the satanic panic and The Dead Don't Die – which unfortunately means you're subjected to another frenzied update from Austin Butler's oeuvre. Lean into it.
- After watching Stranger Things, dive into Hail Satan? (on Stan & DocPlay), West of Memphis and Pia Borg's Demonic, then that NYTimes story on Chloe Sevigny's sculpture by Damien Echols.
- After watching Only Murders in the Building, return to The Dead Don't Die.
- Austin Butler on the River Cafe Table 4 podcast
