    Darci and the boys have the unique pleasure of chatting with historical fiction author and religious scholar, Charles Fischer about his new work of historical fiction, The Eunuch. The Hannah's have a thought provoking and often hilarious talk about ancient Babylon, the life of a eunuch and so much more. Buckle-up and take a listen! THE EUNUCH by former Harvard Divinity School student is equal parts dark comedy and historical fiction — and an allegory for the causes of war ABOUT CHARLES FISCHER Charles Fischer teaches humanities at Everett Community College in Washington, focusing on classic literature including Homer, Sophocles and Shakespeare. With a background in ancient Greek, a Ph.D. in English combined with a Master of Theological Studies degree from the Harvard Divinity School, Charles is uniquely positioned to draw on the events of ancient history as the basis of fiction. He lives in Seattle with his wife, the author Lisa Wogan.   ABOUT THE EUNUCH The Eunuch is a twisted tale of personal love, moral depravity, imperial overreach, and societal decline.  The scope is staggering, the setting exotic, the characters original—and the narrator’s voice is not only compelling but also frequently hilarious. The historical details have been painstakingly researched.  Although it can stand scrutiny as a historical novel, The Eunuch is really an accessible literary mash-up that calls to mind the Game of Thrones novels, Lolita, the Gormenghast novels, and Memoirs of a Geisha, with aristocratic gluttony and sexual indulgence set against the drought and famine of the failing Babylonian empire.

    We're back, and we've got a new name!

    Explicit

    After a month long break, Darci and the boys are back with a new look and a new name. After learning that Dan and Matt were not onboard with the former podcast name of Motherboy, stating that it was a joke, Darci took the matter in hand and asked them, "Well, what name are you onboard with?" After much consideration, they've landed on Nearly Literate, because Darci is a fiction author, and the boys don't read fiction. It works, so welcome to the Nearly Literate Podcast. Also, if you want to see the gang in action, they're now on YouTube @NearlyLiteratePodcast
