LIL #1: Beefcake (The House of Asterion, Borges)


We mostly talked about Jorge Luis Borges and his story “The House of Asterion,” but as always, we got really distracted. Expect to hear tangents on Pokemon, a labyrinth in Kansas City, and Alaska, apparently?


Special thank you to Alex “Bones” Niederberger for the use of our theme song, “Lit is Lit is Lit.” This episode was written and performed by HR Bumgarner and Abby Scadden. It was edited by Julie Tran and Will Robertson. The logo was created by Will Robertson. Special thank you to the Mass Communications & Journalism Building at the University of Denver for the use of their facilities and equipment.


If you’d like to read “The House of Asterion,” you can check it out as well as a variety of Borges’s short stories on his anthology, Labyrinth (1964), using a variety of sources through Goodreads!
