The Sixth installment of season 1 of Rose Sinister: Vampires tackles the 1936 Universal Pictures film, "Dracula's Daughter." Produced as a point in cinema history when expression to a back seat to moralizing lip service, a film that was shockingly bold for its era comes across as tame and problematic by modern standards. But the themes of Dracula's Daughter would do more to establish the tropes of the modern sympathetic vampire narrative than dear old dad ever did.

In the 1800s, there was a surge in the creation of leather objects made from human skin. None of the people making the objects were considered criminals or even particularly disturbed. In this episode we discuss some of these objects, how they were made, and why.

This month we are going to be taking a look at those liminal and elusive cultural groupings that have become tangential to goth such as witch house, synthwave, nu goth and so on.

We’ve also got an album review from Crystal Cage, sinister suggestions, and more!

In the early 1900s, Radium became all the rage due to the luminous green light it gave off. It was used to paint watch dials and instrument panels, making them glow in the darkness. Little did most people know, Radium was highly radioactive. Some precautions were taken but an entire workforce of dial painters was seemingly forgotten and they suffered dearly for their employer's negligence.

This month we are revisiting the topic of sexism within industrial music and culture. While Cemetery Confessions itself is specifically about goth, there’s no denying that there’s a historical propinquity of industrial and goth musically and culturally, and as such goths and industrialists often share experiences and spaces. We discuss misogyny historically, debate whether or not anything has changed, relate personal run ins with this behavior and a lot more. 

In a world where donald trump is president and subcultural music is ever more often taking a stand on ethics, political ideologies, and social justice issues a discussion examining the norms of our culture and the ontologies that come along with them is more relevant than ever.

Our panel this month is Andi HarrimanAlex ReedSharon Kyronfive, and Alison Fraiser!

Poveglia is known as the most haunted island in the world, thanks to its supposed history as a plague hospital and later a psychiatric asylum. But is there any truth to this reputation? In short, yes, but not in the way you might expect. We are sponsored by:
