Episode 21: Clan of the Cave Bear

Ayla is an anatomically modern human (is it technically Cro Magnon?  This is set in modern day Ukraine. To the Wikipedia!) orphaned and raised by a tribe of psychic Neanderthals.  This one isn't the one with all the doin' it (evidently that is Valley of the Horses which also has a bunch of blonde dudes who shop at Cave-REI), it's the one with a ton of rape and abuse in it.

Episode 1: "The Pride of the Peacock"



Hey, y'all! Welcome to our podcast! Follow us here on Facebook (and on our website, coming soon) to make sure you don't miss an episode. Currently we're a feature on the Collinsport Historical Society podcast, because if you love trashy romance novels I'm gonna bet you also love soap operas with vampires and time travel. In our first episode we discuss Victoria Holt's "The Pride of the Peacock" - which has no sexual assault, even of the fantasy kind. Sadly, it has no sex at all. It does have SO MANY OPALS and a dude everyone calls the Peacock without busting out laughing tho.
