10/29/08: The History of Frankenstein
Salt Lake City, UT – Wednesday, as we gear up for our Halloween radio drama, we're talking about Frankenstein. It all began as the nightmare of an unwed, teenage mother in Geneva, Switzerland in 1816. Mary Shelley created a story about hubris transformed into horror, but this is also about compassion and accountability. We'll explore the story and the surprising impact it has had on popular culture. If you learned Frankenstein from the movies, this may not be the story you think you know.
