Bonus – Eric Molinsky’s Imaginary Worlds

In our previous episode, I played an excerpt from Sawbones: A Marital Tour of Misguided Medicine, in which the hosts discussed the history of the man who may have inspired the creation of Frankenstein. This week I offer, in its entirety, an episode of Eric Molinsky’s podcast, Imaginary Worlds, titled “The Year Without a Summer.” This episode, which originally aired in 2016, delves into the circumstances behind the famous writing competition between Mary Wollstonecraft Godwin, Percy Bysshe Shelley, Lord Byron, and John Polidori.
