Scissoring for Psychopaths: The Kuchisake-Onna Story: The ladies are closing out their Japanese Triptych with a slice of urban legends that might leave a metallic taste in your mouth. Lindsay takes us all the way to the Edo period to share the origins of the Kuchisake-Onna, or the slit-mouthed woman.
Oedipus, You Mother Lover: The ladies begin their Greco-Roman triptych with some old-school , familiar flavor; the tragic myth of Oedipus, King of Thebes. Focusing primarily on the plays of Sophocles as source material, Ashley will take you through this wildly histrionic tale from Ancient Greece as the ladies explore the classic struggle between fate and free will. For dessert, we wrap things up by finding examples of this myth's continued influence on contemporary culture.
