The Eel Word
This week we’re going gay for statues and speaking with Dr Melissa Gustin who BEGGED to be on this podcast. Melissa’s research focuses on forms of reproduction in classically informed sculpture from the 18thC through to contemporary 3D printing.
In addition to her interests in classicism and antiquity Melissa works on queer archaeology, murderous mermaids with great hair, and volcanic breasts. In this episode we discuss the secrets of eel cave sex, why marble feels so good you just wanna spank it, and which 19thC lesbian sculptor had the best jawline.
