We are joined by the writer, artist and activist Harriet Williamson to talk about CS Lewis and his books the Chronicles of Narnia. We also discuss post-lockdown anxiety, the real reason women shouldn't be in battles, and our groundbreaking theory that Aslan represents Jesus.
Content note: Between roughly 12 minutes and 22 minutes of the podcast, we discuss mental health issues and the supposed exorcism of demons that cause mental health issues. We also touch on child sex abuse, and reference abuse in the church more generally. Please do skip this segment if that's what's best for you.
