Kafka Bio Crumb

BIBCL2.6: Kafka Bio

The episode with the Kafka Bio In this episode we strain to fight off the boredom of Kafka’s day jobs: law clerk, insurance officer, and trying to live up to his father’s expectations.

Kafka's Metamorphosis Apples

BIBCL2.5: Kafka’s Metamorphosis Apples

Kafka’s Metamorphosis Apples This is our second episode inspired by a scene in the book, all about Kafka’s Metamorphosis apples. Yes, apples: those juicy Biblical symbols that aren’t Biblical at all.

Kafka's Metamorphosis title and collecting talk

BIBCL2.2: Kafka’s Metamorphosis Title and Collecting Talk

Kafka’s Metamorphosis Title In this episode we discuss the origins of the title, taking an ill-advised detour into the dark woods of fairy tale tradition. Kafka’s Metamorphosis title fits neatly into the macabre realism of German tales. Don’t worry, though. Most of what we say can be disregarded for the ultimate fairy tale truth: it’s…

Kafka's Metamorphosis Summary

BIBCL2.1: Kafka’s Metamorphosis Summary in Two Absurd Minutes

Kafka’s Metamorphosis Summary We call this a summary, and yes, it vaguely hits the main points of the plot, but… it’s more of a comic monologue by JP. You will also be treated to a sample of JP’s pop vocals. With that, please enjoy our Kafka’s Metamorphosis summary which should in no way be used…
