I've just posted Episode 10 of the Cthulhu Podcast.

http://CthulhuPodcast.co.uk

In this episode we start off by hearing about and from, a real life hero, Ernest Shackelton, an artic explorer.

The Book "South" mentioned is available for free as text from Project Gutenberg.

http://www.gutenberg.org/etext/5199

"South" is also available as a free audio book from Librivox.

http://librivox.org/...est-shackleton/

We also hear a Mythos poem written by listener Jamie Patton called "The City Without Time", and read by Laura Charles ( look on YouTube for OHSIS ). I really enjoyed this poem, and the one to come!

The musical interlude is a 1928 track called "Come right in" by Cannons Jug Stompers.

The main attraction for todays episode is a story written by RL Burt and is called "The Mistake". This story has been previously broadcast on the authors own podcast called "Come, Let Me Whisper", where he's been broadcasting his own horror writing for about 2 years. You can find that here...

I've just posted ( yesterday actually but we'll keep that between ourselves ) episode 12 of the Cthulhu podcast.

It starts with a short introduction to the 1927 classic silent movie "The General". ( Which you can legally download from Archive.org )

Then we have a mythos poem called "Where the mind Echos" by Jamie Patton

Then we have a 1918 musical track called "after you've gone" by Marrion Harris.

And the feature is a mythos sci-fi story called "Aboard the Vordlak" by William Meikle. It s a monster story and William has had some fun with elements of the mythos.

The article on Nellie Bly was really interesting - what a woman! Certainly defies any stereotypes of the era and an inspiration for any female CoC investigator.

So does the move affect itunes downloads? I'll wait to see if it comes through.
The Good Friends of Jackson Elias : a Podcast about Call of Cthulhu.

There will be a new seperate feed at iTunes, it'll take a while to filter through however.

The old feed will be dying off fairly soon, so you need to switch to the new one. I plan to stop updating the old feed within a couple of episodes.

I cant change the old feed as that is owned by the podcast hosting service I was using. Due to problems there, I have created a new site and feed that I can control.

I'm not familiar with iTunes so I cant give much advice to you except to switch to the need feed as soon as you can.

Hi FNH. I have been listening to Cthulhu podcast from day one. I love the show and get the same feeling of 'get in!' when I see there is a new episode as I get when my issue of 'Four Four Two' or 'Total Film' hits the doormat. I appreciate your hard work.

By the way I thought the last piece of mythos fiction set on the beach was very strong indeed. I dont recall the name of the author but get some more of his work on your cast. If he recorded some audio books of his work I for one would pay for them.
Think on.

Always a pleasure to listen to the Cthulhu Podcast FNH, and I'm learning things about the 1920s that I didn't know.

Keep up the entertaining/educational good work!

I have just posted episode 18 of the Cthulhu Podcast.

In this episode of the Cthulhu Podcast I have the usual menu of three items for you.

First up I have details of a 1920s gangster known as Fred "Killer" Burke.

Then we have a musical interlude, a track called "Just Breezing Along with the Breeze" by the Adrian Schubert Band, recorded in 1926.

And last up, we have a creepy story from H.G. Wells called "The Red Room".

I'm now looking for listener submissions. If you have written a scary or creepy story set in or around the 1920s or have a story set any time using elements of the Cthulhu / Lovecraftian mythos, then please get in touch

Remember the podcast is now on a new site and feed
