Listen to a sneak peek of the first 20 minutes of The Philosopher's Wife Podcast or watch our edited archival video. Please note - our production used some incredibly isolated lighting - often coming from lanterns, the instruments we embedded in the floor to evoke firelight, and a lot of gothic darkness. In some instances, we were not able to capture this haunting effect on video, thus some scenes will be quite dark.
