Mollusc Bollocks and Darwin’s Sexy Crab‪s‬

This week we’re joined by Dr Rachel Murray, a Leverhulme Early Career Fellow in English Literature based at the University of Sheffield. In this episode we talk to Rachel about Darwin’s Sexy crabs, why T.S. Eliot was bad in bed and whether or not A Bug’s Life can be read as Marxist allegory.

Rachel is interested in all things creepy crawly and recently published her first monograph The Modernist Exoskeleton: Insects, War, Literary Form with Edinburgh University Press. You can follow Rachel at @murrayrachel89 and can listen to her BBC4 episode here

Unlike Rachel’s BBC4 production we can proudly state that no bugs were harmed in the making of this episode.
