    Swords & Shotguns #11 - Japanese Horror

    We're heading East! In this episode we take a look at what makes Japanese horror intriguing and what tropes and ideas are common among different creations of horror media from this country. From Ringu to Silent Hill, there are common elements that constitute Japanese horror as a separate identity. Because Chris is an outsider to that topic, he asks some questions that don't come up too often - for instance, is Godzilla horror?  Suggestions or Questions?  You can contact us at swords.shotguns@gmail.com Social Media Facebook Instagram:  Adam Chris   Legal Episodes available freely, licensed under Creative Commons: By Attribution 4.0. creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-sa/4.0/ Music Swords & Shotguns main theme: Mystic Rainbow by The Cosmic Dinodog Deadly Roulette Kevin MacLeod (incompetech.com) Licensed under Creative Commons: By Attribution 3.0 License creativecommons.org/licenses/by/3.0/ Until next time...

    Swords & Shotguns #9 - What Is And Isn't Lovecraftian?

So this episode we delve into the world of popculture to discuss what we deem as worthly of being called Lovecraftian Horror.  Suggestions or Questions?  You can contact us at swords.shotguns@gmail.com Social Media Facebook Instagram  Legal Episodes available freely, licensed under Creative Commons: By Attribution 4.0. creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-sa/4.0/ Music Swords & Shotguns main theme: Mystic Rainbow by The Cosmic Dinodog Deadly Roulette Kevin MacLeod (incompetech.com) Licensed under Creative Commons: By Attribution 3.0 License creativecommons.org/licenses/by/3.0/ Until next time...

    Swords & Shotguns #8 - AI, Prosthetics, and Killer Robots

    Swords & Shotguns #8 - AI, Prosthetics, and Killer Robots

    Welcome to The Future World!  This episode we delve into the world of science fiction. We will take a look at the issues often tackled in the genre that seem to creep into our own reality. But, because it's such a vast topic, I invited my good friend Chris to the conversation. A few corrections: Yes, positive alterations of a fetus in mother's womb are possible. That's what fetal surgeries are for. I only meant the natural state of the fetus when it's being developed through all the stages. But again, you could argue a proper diet and smart lifestyle choices also have an impact on the child.  Suggestions or Questions?  You can contact me at swords.shotguns@gmail.com Social Media Facebook Twitter  Instagram  Legal Episodes available freely, licensed under Creative Commons: By Attribution 4.0. creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-sa/4.0/ Music Swords & Shotguns main theme: Mystic Rainbow by The Cosmic Dinodog Overworld Deadly Roulette Kevin MacLeod (incompetech.com) Licensed under Creative Commons: By Attribution 3.0 License creativecommons.org/licenses/by/3.0/ Until next time...
