    Lovecraft Country - 105 - Strange Case

    Lovecraft Country - 105 - Strange Case

    Listeners asked for a deeper, longer dive, so here it is. This week's Shat on TV covers all the gore, glam, and "goddamn!" of Lovecraft Country Episode 5: Strange Case.

    Ash educates us on Kafka's "Metamorphosis," a subject she actually taught at the college level. Not to be outdone, Gene unveils the truth behind "Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde" (with the help of listeners, of course.)

    Lovecraft Country - 104 - A History of Violence

    Lovecraft Country - 104 - A History of Violence

    We expected an Indiana Jones-style romp from Lovecraft Country Episode 4. And "A History of Violence" delivered that adventure on a bloody plate, examining what it feels like to be the aboriginal rather than the raider.

    In this podcast edition, we explain why the museum was critical to telling the tale, why Montrose snuffed out a life, how the Chicago police fit into the picture, and what NACA was.

    Lovecraft Country - 103 - Holy Ghost

    "Lovecraft Country" promised us a spooky, sexy, seething mix of TV horror and real-world racism. And Episode 3 delivered on that promise in a big way.

    Learn the history of the Winthrop House, Christina Braithwaite's involvement, and the significance of the episode's opening church scene. Explore the tension between key characters, and celebrate the sizzle between Atticus and Letitia.

    Lovecraft Country - 102 - Whitey's on The Moon

    Lovecraft Country - 102 - Whitey's on The Moon

    Lovecraft Country Episode 2 hit us hard and quick with a slew of new characters, Atticus' dizzying lineage, hallucinations, rituals, cannibalism, ancient orders, and snake dick. Thankfully, we have answers. 

    "Whitey's on The Moon" pushed the audience into new territory while drawing from influences as far-flung as "Goosebumps" and "The Rocky Horror Picture Show." Uncle George said goodbye with some really powerful lines, and two ghosts gave us some mysteries to think about.

    Lovecraft Country - 101 - Sundown

    Lovecraft Country - 101 - Sundown

    Our "Sundown" Deep Dive explores the breakneck pace and refreshing attitude of Lovecraft Country's debut episode. We examine the racist legacy of H.P Lovecraft, the legendary voice of James Baldwin, and the principle of "othering."

    A voicemail about "The Green Book" takes Gene Lyons to task, and listener letters highlight the history of Chicago's Bronzeville, the concept of "struggle movies," the contrast of eldritch horror vs. Jim Crow horror, and the use sci-fi and horror as genres to tackle bigotry.
