Episode 07 - Rogues in the House (Or, Conan finds the missing link and helps us learn about evolution!)

Journey back with us to an age undreamed of, when the Red Priest Nabonidus and the aristocratic Murillo waged a back and forth power struggle for control of a city, the name of which is lost in the murky eddies of time. Hither came Conan during his youth, and the shocking events of that fateful night caused dramatic and violent changes within the local political landscape...

Rogues in the House (Weird Tales, January 1934) is the seventh published Conan the Cimmerian story by author Robert E. Howard. This week, we are joined by our pal Steve as we cuss, discuss, and dissect this fan-favorite Conan story. Download the episode to hear our take on it! And let us know what you think of the story!

We begin this week with a discussion of Voyager I - all out there alone in the dark places between the stars. Pertinent links here and here!

In two weeks, join us for another exciting adventure as our hero Conan journeys to the northern tundra, battles some Vikings, and meets The Frost Giant's Daughter! (Read it on Wikisource!)
