In the mountains of central Appalachia, blood runs as deep as these hollers and just as dark. Since before our kind knew these hills, hearts of unknowable hunger and madness have slumbered beneath them. These are the darkest mountains in the world. How dare we think we can break the skin of a god and dig out its heart without bringing forth blood and darkness? Old Gods of Appalachia is a horror-anthology podcast set in the shadows of an Alternate Appalachia, a place where digging too deep into the mines was just the first mistake.

Love

I really love this pod. I always want more of it so much that I have listened and re-listened, and then re-listened some more. See you soon, family!

Americana in full force

Fantastic podcast with a great feel that is uniquely American. You should definitely check it out! Update: first podcast that made me tear up and put a lump in my throat.
Another update: still an excellent show, however the non-linear story does make things difficult to keep up with the large cast of characters as the show continues.
