Happy Halloween from The GribCast!

The Gribshnobler returns from hiatus with LadyMsGee for our discussion of season 2 of the TV series The Handmaid's Tale, based on the dystopian (maybe science fiction) novel by Margaret Atwood.  Do we think this season holds up in comparison to the book and first season?
