    Today's episode will be slightly different. I'll be interviewing three of the actors from the play to give three different perspectives. Jason Miles will talk about how he felt coming to Dracula for the first time. Erin Lundquist will talk about how the historical background of Dracula relates to issues today and Lindsay Meagher-Swanson, mental health counselor, will talk about how horror fiction can be therapeutic.

Classic Creep ,

Perfect For Spooky Season

Great writing, voices & background music

briespector ,

Fun adaptation

I think I appreciated this much more after listening to the interview episode. The creator seems to have a strong understanding & appreciation for the source material, & I agree with a lot of his opinions. I think you can definitely feel that this a smaller/lower budget production in some of the voice acting & sound effects, but I think it still does a good job adapting the source material in a way that feels faithful while still making changes.

Penguin Incarnate ,

Dracula for Serious Vampheads

The only Dracula that I care to recognize. The only Dracula that matters. Those other Dracula adaptations? I spit on them.
