This time on GothCast we’re taking on the fan-requested Cocteau Twins. While beginning with a sound more aligned with post-punk, they quickly established themselves as talented musicians who preferred to experiment with more ethereal sounds. This is definitely one of the more heated arguments between the hosts as they each argue for their favorite releases.

In this episode Brit-El goes off script and speaks from the heart. Among the topics discussed are film, sexuality, theology, and she even takes some calls.

Apr 26, 2016

On this episode of Gothropology, Brit-El and traditional British witch Griffin Ced work the angles of one of paganism's biggest festivals: Beltane. What role does fire really play in the biggest fire festival? What role does the family and community play in the "sexiest" festival? What of personal evolution at this time of year? Listen in for the full-bodied conversation on Beltane. And for those interested in seeing Griffin in action, don't forget to check the Green Man's calendar for upcoming events!

For our return to regular releases we thought what better way to start than with part three of Siouxsie and the Banshees. This episode we talk about the last three albums they released before disbanding. This era of the Banshees saw a heavier shift towards pop music with the albums Peepshow (1988), Superstition (1991), and The Rapture (1995). Don’t worry, there’s going to be more content about the goth icons, but just in different way. We hope you enjoy this episode and give these albums a chance.

We are interviewing Emma tonight about socio-aesthetic experiences of culture, cultural history, viewing goth as a culture rather than subculture, and the sociology of design; specifically how that translates into communities of belonging especially among goths. Emma is now undertaking a PhD as a participant researcher. She recently conducted the largest ever survey about goth, among participants of the culture for that very project, which is titled Just a Phase?  Goth subculture as an identity constant beyond youth.
