    We're going to the movies! Three vampire movies planted the seeds for the 20th century's gallery of glampires and we'll tackle them all in this episode and once we've taken them to the floor we'll cover them in hugs and kisses. It's time for some nookie with Nosferatu, drama with Dracula, and cold vampin' with Vampyr. Bestselling author, Grady Hendrix, continues his struggle to get you to buy his book, The Southern Book Club's Guide to Slaying Vampires, and to make his argument he throws in some plain talk about syphilis, sexually insatiable women, hideous war wounds, gas attacks, super-clean underwear, and poetry.

Who turn out to have nothing to do with vampires after all.

Obsessed

Grady Hendrix is hilarious and terrifying! I’m obsessed with his books and now his podcast. He’s timely, accurate, relatable and vintage in all the best ways. I feel like you either get him or you don’t, and if you don’t I’m so sorry! Iconic!

Funny and concisely informative

Not only does Grady provide boatloads of illuminating information, but he does so while tossing in some hilarious quips.

No stench of pretentiousness here folks! It’s history and subject analysis without the snobbery, which is the literal only way I like it.

Great job Grady!
