Brilliant.

Fascinating and intelligent analysis of horror/occult/pulp/Decadent novels ranging from those with no socially redeeming qualities (“Incubus”), to long forgotten (or little known) gems (“Alraune”), to books with deeply layered subtexts (“The Torture Garden”) . Always fun, always brilliant. Has really expanded my horizons. Best podcast ever!

I used to really enjoy this podcast but the guy’s gotten to be super annoying, he has to be the biggest snowflake on any podcast out right now, that being said if you feel like you need to be punished for something you’ve done go ahead and give it a listen, just make sure you don’t have any sharp objects around because you’re liable to cut your ears off after listening to five minutes of his whining.

It’s good to be bad.

The world needs more podcasts like this. Jack and Kate always serve up a healthy dose of snark and wit with every book they look at, from the good (The Final Programme), the bad (Prince Lestat and the New Age something or other), and the just plain ugly (Ready Player One). My daily commute is about an hour one way, and one of my favorite ways to pass the miles is to tune in and listen to these two yammer on about awesomely weird books.

Just listen. ‘Nuff said.
