Nearing the end of the first season of Rose Sinister: Vampires, episode 8 examines the impact of faith and culture on the creative process, representation versus appropriation, and the overall impact Stephenie Meyer's Twilight Saga has had on vampire stories.

On this episode, we bring together our funny little DJ collective and talk music while being very silly (and a little drunk) with our guests The Wasteland and Vernal Trash.

Archaeologists have found many unusual graves throughout Eastern Europe, graves in which stakes have been driven through the deceased's body. These burials, and the historical documents from the time, suggest that these individuals were suspected of being vampires by those that buried them. They are known as Vampire Burials, and in this episode, we explore exactly what was at stake.

We have a special episode for you this week, we are back with a full panel to discuss one of the most contentious topics related to goth. In a climate where it is becoming increasingly difficult to talk to those who don’t share our views, what role does goth play? Transgressive and activist counterculture, or impartial music tribe? Does denying the political roots and inclinations of goth culture lend itself to infiltration by racist and sexist ideologies?

Our panel this month consists of Abigail, Dani, Nephilim, Trae, and Zakkarri

I’ve avoided dividing the episode into timestamped sections, as the the conversation is loosely structured, each portion of the episode continuously builds upon the previous on, and they are wide ranging in and of themselves. As always thank you for listening and supporting the show by telling your friends about us or jumping on patreon!

The latest installment of Rose Sinister: Vampires is a deeply personal reflection on a vampire story that had a huge impact on my life- and why sometimes, revisiting the magic of our youth can challenge us to re-examine the stories that shape us. One of the best, and most disturbing, vampire novels ever written, Poppy Z. Brite's shocking 1992 novel, Lost Souls has had a huge impact on the lives of many of its readers. It's not a novel for the faint of heart, and while this episode isn't explicit, it does come with a content warning for disturbing subject matter and, of course, spoilers. I'm particularly interested to know what your thoughts on this novel are, if you read it when you were young, and if you've re-read it as an adult.

Rumors of an experiment that resulted in the invisibility and teleportation of a ship began in 1955 thanks to a set of letters sent by a man named Carlos M. Allende. These letters sparked a conspiracy theory that still exists today. Is there any truth to it? In this episode we dig deep into the mystery of Philadelphia Experiment.
