The Best Podcast I’ve Ever Found

I don’t list that title lightly. There’s a long list of podcasts I like, and many I hold to the highest caliber, but the HP Lovecraft Literary Podcast ranks as #1. I’ve never before enjoyed content enough to join a Patreon till this podcast. That they provide all 120ish Lovecraft story episodes for free is outstanding, but the vast archive of other weird fiction they’ve covered since is unmatched anywhere.

I found it from a random reddit page talking about Lovecraft, and since then I’ve read everything HPL ever wrote (including a chunk of the letters), eagerly listening to Chad and Chris discuss each story afterwards. Once I realized I wanted to keep reading weird fiction, the natural thing to do was to keep listening too, and feel lucky they’ve already covered so many works I want to read.

The format (not pointlessly long), the hosts (hilariously nerdy-dad humored), and the analyses (always on point and thoughtful) make every one a jewel. It’ll take me literally years to read through and listen up to the present day episodes, and I can’t wait.

The HP Lovecraft Literary Podcast

Truly a fantastic podcast for any fan of the weird and horrific worlds of Lovecraft, his circle, and those who influenced them and they influenced. Chad and Chris make a great dynamic duo and their guests often outshine them! There is also a great community built up around this podcast and I definitely recommend the Patreon page.

My only point of contention is one they’d find valid: it is two white gen-x guys talking about old, racist authors from the turn of the last century. Chad and Chris do their best to be constructive, tasteful, and informative, but there is only so much they can do.

A Dupre ,

By far the best Lovecraft podcast that exists.

The hosts are knowledgeable and provide useful insight into the life and work of HP Lovecraft. This content is engaging and presented in a way that goes beyond merely rehashing the same old tidbits most Lovecraft enthusiasts are already familiar with. The readers who are invited to read excerpts and bring life to the stories are phenomenal (Andrew Lehman!!!) as are the other guests who make appearances on the show. This is probably my favorite podcast. Well done, gentlemen.
