It’s our third annual Christmas ghost story episode and we’re looking into this 2011 debut of the popular horror anthology series by Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk. We discuss Murphy’s mission, the show’s popularity and its contrast of trashy excessive violence and sex, with themes of mainstream, heteronormative patriarchy.
