With Karl on break, Friedrich and Søren discuss a book they'd both hoped to force him to read: Anthony Trollope's Victorian novel The Warden. They talk about the ways in which the book goes against the grain of other Victorian novels; the trials and travails of structuring your book around a beta male protagonist; and the flow of sympathy present in the book. Bonus: a discussion of Dr. Pessimist Anticant and Mr. Popular Sentiment.
Theme song: "Shostakovich" by Mucca Pazza.
