This is season 1, episode 2. Today we are reading Chapter 2 of The Great God Pan, an 1894 novella by Arthur Machen.
In the last episode, Dr. Raymond lectures his friend Clark about his journey to the outer edges of science, and then, to Clark’s apparent horror, performs surgery on the brain of his young ward Mary. Following the surgery, Mary’s face glows with wonder, and then abject terror, her mind seemingly destroyed by the cosmic visions that Dr. Raymond’s surgery has brought her.
Now that we’re all caught up, let’s dive in to Chapter 2 of the Great God Pan by Arthur Machen.
