Season 18 Episode 17: Beyond the Black River

 

Welcome back, Cromrades! Today, we join Conan as he ventures into an area of colonization, where native peoples are being hectored by imperial forces and pioneers. Essentially, we're joining him in Texas circa the late 1600's or the mid- 1800's. As such, we've invited Ben Friberg to join us. He's a friend of the show, a Texas historian, chronicler of Robert E. Howard Days, and crafter of ice cream and we're delighted he stopped by the pod to dissect, "Beyond the Black River". So, hop in a canoe and join us, won't you?

Cromtober 2023 Episode 2: The Underwater World of H.P. Lovecraft

 Welcome back, Boils and Ghouls! Your three-headed podcast hosting ogre has selected a couple of delightfully frightful tales for tonight's Cromtober recording! They are of the nautical horror bent, set in demon-haunted New England: Dagon, and The Shadow Over Innsmouth by H.P. Lovecraft! We discuss all manner of horrific details regarding these two thematically linked stories beside a Cromtober fire on a lonely and darkening coastline. 

Join us, won't you?
