Ryan Sheely and Matthew Wrather discuss Skins series 2 episode 5 (“Chris”) and 6 (“Tony”), focusing on the function and commercialisation of education (the Brits are rubbing off on us), the relationship of the small social order to the larger societal and economic order, a visitors guide to Pride Rock, the travesty of Milton-less English Literature programs, and the psychological meaning of self-boning.
They also answer the backlog of listener emails and voicemails, falling under the sway of the mellifluous voice of Professor Dave. We’re getting to the end of the summer session…keep the reading responses coming!
There will be no spoiler warnings and there will be many naughty words. If either of those things bothers you, don’t click!
