The Best Podcast About Lovecraft!

By The Final Sam - Sep 01 2019
Read more
I discovered this podcast from a reddit thread and since the night I heard their siren call, I've been working my way through the archive. I love hearing them talk about Lovecraft and horror. Listening to this pod is like sitting with friends. Good Friends, one might say... If you like Lovecraft, roleplaying games, and talks of horror and what makes it tick, please give this pod a try! Fantastic job, guys!

A wonderful Call of Cthulhu podcast

I have been thoroughly enjoying picking and choosing episodes of the podcast to listen to. I always know that the three hosts will have put in an enormous amount of research into whatever topic they choose to discuss. The hosts have a wealth of experience, having played and created rpg scenarios for decades. A gem of a podcast.
