Shirley Jackson's short story, 'The Lottery' is the subject of this week's conversation between Jess and Abby.
You can read the story on the New Yorker website here.
A gothic story of family, community, obligation and tradition, Abby and Jess still naturally manage to discuss it in terms of horror movies, A Series of Unfortunate Events, Horrible Histories, and Midsommar's 'flower slug'.
