MEOW Ep. 21: Prince Harry's Memoir, Hypnotic Cascades, and the Teachings of Gurdjieff



Claims about Prince Harry’s use of a “Meow” audiobook to lull a Sussex prostitute into a state of autoerotic trance have spread like wildfire in the weeks leading up to the release of his white-hot memoir, Spare, where they, along with a litany of other feline-tinged indiscretions, are allegedly recounted in detail.

In this episode, Oxford linguist Sam Austen plays a 20-minute segment of “Meow: A Novel,” his 14.5-hour audio opus, and explains how this, in conjunction with an obscure hypnotic technique promulgated by the renegade psychological theorist George Gurdjieff, could be used to such an end – with shocking efficacy.
