Lovecraftian Podcraft Goodness
This will be the summer of the weird tale...
Since I started playing in DaddyGrognard's CoC game I've added a couple of extra Lovecraftian focused podcasts to my morning commute (normally I've been listening to RPG circus in addition to various other books in digital format on my 45 min morning commute) During the ride home at night I like to rock out to a little metal.
Here are my newest werid podcraft additions:
Lovecraftian Obsession Podcast (I've been listening to this one since the Shane Magus turned me onto it) - interviews with famous Lovecraftian scholars, authors, and game designers. Some discussion of Lovecraft history and philosophy, debate about certain stories.
The HP Lovecraft Literary Podcast - These guys (who were involved in the creation of that cool silent film "The Call of Cthulhu") tackle each of HP Lovecrafts stories in the order that they were published. Good narration by Andrew Leman on many of these stories. They do some good discussion about the stories and drop some cool facts about his life, friends, inspirations, and other errata. Cool website www.hppodcraft.com - check it out!
Yog Radio YSDC - this one is new to me - they seems like Lovecraft reporters on the front lines... I've only listened to one of these podcasts so I can't comment much on this one.
I'm also about to listen to "The Fall of the House of Usher" by Edgar Allen Poe this upcoming week. Maybe I will discuss the story on this blog. I used to be really into Poe as a teen - I memorized a couple of his poems by heart during those years and I can still recite parts of
them to this day. Anyway, happy listening if you check out these audio format podcasts!
