S2E8 - The Rise & Fall & Rise of Joseph
The original King of Dreams goes from the pit to the heights.
We're back to the story of Joseph, as our young dreamer finds himself in Egypt in the service of a eunuch named Potiphar. While Joseph distinguishes himself via his excellent leadership skills, his luck doesn't last long, and he eventually winds up in prison. Will his dream-interpretation skills come to the rescue? We consider midrashic thoughts about castration, discuss which boy band Joseph would belong to, and debate how much he has in common with Bella from Twilight.
Sue knows an uncanny amount about this story due to a certain musical by a certain Andrew Lloyd Webber, so the format is slightly different than usual, and we end with a musical treat!
Next episode out Jan 11th (2nd & 4th Wednesdays).
