For the last episode of our 2020 film mini-season, we welcome back Helen Zaltzman and Jenny Owen Youngs (of The Allusionist, Buffering The Vampire Slayer, and Veronica Mars Investigates) for a somewhat contentious discussion of this vampire-staple retelling. With some strong feelings and heavy levels of confusion, as well as a solo outing by Sam as guy-who-can-find-a-positive-in-almost-anything, Song by Song… well, we kind of get this one out of the way. Sorry to all the big fans, we did our best to find a balanced response, it just wasn't loved OK WHAT'S NEXT?

Song by Song is Martin Zaltz Austwick and Sam Pay; two musicians listening to and discussing every single Tom Waits track in chronological order.

Episode 52 - Orson Welles Mercury Theatre Production of Bram Stoker’s DRACULA

Redfield Arts Audio presents the Orson Welles’ Mercury Theatre on the Air production of Bram Stoker’s DRACULA. Broadcast on CBS in July of 1938, it was the first audio drama production from The Mercury Theatre, produced by John Houseman and Welles. Orson Welles plays Dr. Seward and voices Dracula, with Agnes Moorehead as Mina, George Coulouris as Jonathan, and Martin Gabel as Van Helsing. Many of the actors came along to radio from the Mercury Theatre stage, and would go on to films produced by Welles and The Mercury Theater, such as CITIZEN KANE (1941).

Bram Stoker’s novel DRACULA was published in May of 1897, and has inspired countless adaptations in radio, theater, and film.

Dracula by Bram Stoker

LibreCast Audiobooks
Episode artwork

This is an audiobook of Dracula by Bram Stoker, narrated by Corrinne LePage.

The tale of the vampire has been around for ages. You can trace the current word back to the 18th century, but the traits of the vampire have existed in various cultures from around the world throughout time. Joseph Sheridan Le Fanu’s 1872 novella Carmilla is one of the first popular portrayals of the vampire. It was preceded by The Vampyre by John Polidori in 1819, which remained popular throughout the century of its publication.

However, they all seem to take a backseat to the legendary Dracula by Bram Stoker. Published in 1897, Stoker’s classic is still the goto wellspring of information for anyone that wants to adapt the myth to the screen or stage. Everything popular that you know about vampires – their weakness to garlic and the crucifix, driving a stake through their heart, the lack of a reflection, the turning of a human to a vampire – comes from Dracula.

The Lair of the White Worm by Bram Stoker

LibreCast Audiobooks
Episode artwork

This is an audiobook of The Lair of the White Worm by Bram Stoker, narrated by Betsie Bush.

The novel is in part inspired by the legend of the Lambton Worm. In the folklore, John Lambton, heir to Lambton Estate, did battle with a giant worm (or dragon; dragons are sometime called worms in folklore). The worm in question was eel-or-lamprey-like, with nine holes on either side of its slimy head. After his fight, Lambton discards the worm in a nearby well. Similarly, in The Lair of the White Worm, the worm in question lives in pit on an estate. The worm is used to dispose of murdered or killed people; once a body is thrown to it, it eats it up.

206 - Bram Stoker - Resurrecting the Vampire

Biographics: History One Life at a Time
Episode artwork

The myth of the Vampire is as old as time itself, and many incarnations of this demonic creature are found in almost every culture. And when we think about Vampires today, one novel casts its shadow over legions of imitators -- Dracula, the Undead. One man -- a former civil servant, theatre manager, and part-time writer -- condensed into one single work of fiction all vampiric lore as we know it today.

"Interview with the Vampire" and "Bram Stoker's Dracula": Sucks to Be Them

What The Kids Were Watching
Episode artwork
Read more

The late aughts had “Twilight,” but in the early 90s, vampire fans were sinking their teeth into “Interview with the Vampire” and “Bram Stoker’s Dracula” — and today, these two movies are the subject of a bloody good podcast episode. Raf explains how these films were groundbreaking in many ways, from portraying vampires as creatures worthy of sympathy to featuring a gay subtext that was rarely seen in the era's big-budget films. Sarah admits she hasn't seen these movies as many times as Raf has, but she does approve of Gary Oldman’s “Victorian Geddy Lee” look.


In many ways, these two films are as different as night and day. Both hosts agree that “Dracula” is beautiful but boring, despite Sadie Frost’s amazing Lucy (and in spite of Anthony Hopkins' scenery-chewing Van Helsing). “Interview,” meanwhile, suffers from Brad Pitt's Louis — who Sarah dubs "sullen furniture" — but sparkles thanks to Tom Cruise's charming sociopath Lestat and Kirsten Dunst’s fantastic baby vampire Claudia, as well as Latinx representation and the afore-mentioned gay subtext. But why do women suffer so much more than men in both films? And is living forever an eternal party, or an eternal funeral? The hosts try to find some answers that don't suck.

Episode 33: Dracula’s Guest by Bram Stoker

Classic Ghost Stories

Bram Stoker

Bram Stoker was an Irish author born in 1847 in Dublin. Stoker is probably the best known horror writer in the world (after Steven King!) and is famous for his fantastically best-selling novel Dracula. 

Interestingly, Stoker spent his first years in bed, stricken by an unknown illness , and then he went to school even becoming an athlete there!

After school he got his Bachelor of Arts degree at Trinity College and then got a Master of Arts in 1875. 

Stoker’s early career was in the Irish Civil Service but on the side became the theatre critic for the Dublin Evening Mail, which was partly owned by Sheridan le Fanu, another Irish author of ghost stories who we have featured on the Classic Ghost Stories Podcast. Stoker also knew fellow Irish author Oscar Wilde. I guess Dublin was a small town in those days, especially in literary circles.

In 1876, he became acquainted with the forceful English actor, Henry Irving after he wrote a nice review of Irving’s performance (Hint. You never know what good will come from nice reviews!)

Stoker became Irving’s manager and followed him around Britain, which entailed a stay at Whitby (a place I love, and was last at just before Christmas) in 1880. Of course this is where Dracula comes ashore. 

Stoker died aged 64 in London.

Though he is most famous for Dracula, Stoker obviously wrote other stories. 

This one, Dracula’s guest, which was later published as a short story was intended as the first chapter of the novel Dracula. 

In it, we have our nameless hero setting off on a day trip from Munich on Walpurgis Nacht. At the end, we realise that this young man is to be the guest of Dracula who writes from Bistritz in Transylvania.

The hero of this story is obviously Jonathan Harker and Stoker’s publisher obviously saw no need for the first chapter in Munich, so Dracula begins in Bistritz.

The style is very similar to Dracula. The hero does what all heroes in horror stories do, he goes somewhere he shouldn’t. Stoker paints a picture of Central Europe hooching with vampires. Young Mr Harker wanders into the tomb of the vampire countess from Styria (interestingly where Le Fanu (whom Stoker knew) set his story Carmilla — see previous episodes of this podcast. He is pulled out of the tomb by a might grasp, presumably Dracula’s and Dracula presumably blasts the poor vampire countess in her marble tomb with lightning, then sits on him, in the form of a wolf, keeping him warm in the icy cold. 

It’s a long way from Transylvania to Munich, but as Stoker reminds us: The Dead Travel Fast.
