Episode 23: Five Stories by the Innovator of Cosmic Horror, H.P. Lovecraft

It’s the first week of October, and that means it’s time for some horror. We’re starting off with a doozy. This week, Shawn tackles one of the more complex and controversial authors to be featured to this point on the show. Grab some headphones and settle in for H.P. Lovecraft like you’ve never heard him before! We’ll get into the man himself (including the racist elephant in the room,) the writings, and the influence he’s had on horror since his death 80 years ago. But that’s just the intro! Tune in for FIVE pieces by the innovator of cosmic horror – three stories bookended by two poems, all with the SYY signature production, sound effects, and music. Don’t miss it!
