The time has finally arrived for the Babes to unleash on the most problematic of artists, Paul Gauguin. Please join us for some unabashed Gauguin bashing, as we highlight all the reasons he was literally the worst -- from his terrible treatment of Van Gogh, to his abandonment of his family, to his exploitation of young girls. Plus, we attempt to address the looming question of "What do we do with the art of bad people?".
Warning: This episode contains discussion of domestic violence, sexual abuse, and exploitation.
