Interview with Juliet Landau
In this very special episode, I virtually sat down with actor/director Juliet Landau to talk about her new film A Place Among the Dead, which will be released at the end of October. This is a shorter interview due to her busy schedule, so we mainly focus on the new film. Not much time for Buffy-talk in this episode. Be sure to check out the film later this month. All of the dates and links to buy tickets for the shows that Juliet mentions can be found in one place. Right here - https://www.modernfilms.com/aplaceamongthedead You can also find her on Instagram - https://www.instagram.com/juliet_landau/ and Facebook - https://www.facebook.com/julietlandauofficial Don't forget to follow the podcast wherever you find your podcasts, and on FB and Instagram, and at http://thevampirehistorian.com

Nerdy vampire facts
So I love this podcast so far; it always has lots of great information and I learn a ton. My only trope is the production value is a little difficult to listen to. I really wish the host would get a better microphone and maybe throw in a little personality to it (about them?) I’ll stay subscribed and see where this goes :)
Could be better
Production makes it hard to listen.
No other podcast like it
So happy to find an academic vampire podcast. Lots of good info for those interested in history, folklore or even the pop culture side of vampires!
