On this episode, we take a look at the iconic Bela Lugosi. In his portrayal of Dracula, he defined the aesthetic and demeanor of vampires for generations to come, and as goths and horror fans, why not talk about the actor immortalized by Bauhaus?

Our podcast background soundtrack includes Romanian folk from Béla Bartók, Schubert’s Unfinished Symphony No.8, Phillip Glass’ Dracula Suite, Music from the Original Motion Picture Soundtrack "Plan 9 from Outer Space”, Music from the soundtrack for Bram Stoker’s Dracula, a contemporary soundtrack by Kostika Collaku, Bauhaus’ Bela Lugosi’s Dead, and Concrete Blonde’s Bloodletting.

Documentary available

On March 31, 1922, an entire family and their maid were murdered in their home, an isolated farmstead in Bavaria, Germany, known as Hinterkaifeck. The killer has never been discovered, and a web of mystery has been woven around the incident since it occurred. In this episode we discuss the case, the suspects, and try to separate fact from fiction.

In the past, tsantsas, or shrunken heads, were made by the Shuar people of Ecuador and Peru. These ritual items were part of a complex system of power among the Shuar, but were later traded to fascinated Westerners for guns and other metal goods. In this episode, we discuss the Shuar, how tsantsas were made, and how trade in tsantsas impacted the Western perception of the Shuar.

Part 1 of 2

Year: 1988

Albums: Dark Adapted Eye, Danielle Dax

The Serpent's Egg, Dead Can Dance

It's on! The wildest year of our simmering heroes' saga of heartache, triumph and disaster arrives. Simon finds himself in the forest of the London night, partying, protesting and writing essays under the influence. Nick plays a showcase gig in Covent Garden, hoping for every talent scout and A&R man in town to beg Felo de Se to sign with their label. The band's goth origins and future direction causes rising tension. And the two unfortunates, poor fools that they were, embark upon an LSD night that will leave them haunted and scarred.

Oct 2, 2020

This episode we discuss death, and why it’s more important than ever to talk about it.
