Welcome to the Gothquisition! I’ve assembled the goth cabal, a conclave of arrogant, elitist, gatekeeping, goth purists, prepared to bitch slap the internet and read you to filth. These are the kind of goths who read Baudelaire, drink absinthe, and spin Naked and the Dead on original vinyl, and that’s just for breakfast! Together they are a wealth of knowledge and glares that can reduce babybats to ash, and they’re here to set the internet straight.

Special thanks to Real American Gamer for voicing the intro for this episode.

40 Years of Goth? 22:02

Our inquisitors have prepared arguments for who they think should be considered the most seminal or important musician for goth. Spoiler alert, it gets ugly real fast.

It's finally time to take on The Lady of the Manners and her assessment of the necessity of goth music as a requisite for goth cultural membership.

Gothropology is the show that discusses ancient traditions, modern heretics, mortality, sexuality and regeneration- the guide to come and take you by the hand into unknown pleasures.

On this episode, reiki master Kristin Dwan shares her lifelong relationship with fire and healing. From third degree burns and a burnt house to regeneration, from job loss to career renewal, Kristin shares an impassioned, compassionate testament to the human will and the awe-inspiring power of fire to destroy and to cleanse. Kristin heals full-time with The Healing Woods, her Los Angeles-centric business that offers healing via reiki, fire cupping and tarot reading. Kristin also counsels other spiritual healers in establishing their own business, solidifying a partnership of energy workers to “heal the world.” Baptism by Flame is the engaging, nonfiction workbook-memoir that makes Kristin’s evolution into an accessible tool for the reader’s personal growth as well.

Follow Kristin on Facebook to stay in the loop, and take a look at to read more about her BS bonfires, reiki packages and coaching.

Traditionally speaking, before the internet became ubiquitous, sociologists considered diffusion vital to the survival of subculture. For goth in the 80’s there was a heavy reliance on zine’s and newsletters for the transfer of information and facilitation of discourse. Ironically, now that we have an efficient medium for such diffusion, many claim that medium is ushering in the death of subculture.

Despite the general angst or love surrounding the internet, surprisingly little qualitative or statistically significant data on the effect of the internet on goth or subcultures in general is available. This month we add to that discussion, as we explore the nature of the internet, the facilitation of identity construction, the debate between structured culture and post-subcultural groupings, cultural capitol, and more.
