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 :)

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!
