*News from Pnakotus 001-033 have been moved to the Patron archives*


As heralded in Yog Radio #44, we've split off and expanded the Yog Radio News section into its own podcast, entitled: News from Pnakotus.

Featuring yours truly and the most excellent Mr. Chris Lackey, News from Pnakotus is intended to be a periodic podcast covering all things Lovecraftian, weird and Cthulhu-related.

It goes out on the main podcast feed (www.yog-sothoth.com/podcast.xml) and the first show is now out, coming in at a more than respectable 52 minutes (its the first show, we had a lot to cover) ;). Future shows should be a more snappy 15-20 minutes... possibly/hopefully?

Download News from Pnakotus 001 (25 MB) Running time: 52:17

Theme music is by the ever talented Allicorn from his album Tattered.

That's great. I'm glad it's on the same feed as the regular show. No need to subscribe to a new show on iTunes.

I look forward to the new news show.

The static in my mind, leaves me hollow and unkind.

This is great news. The more Cthulhu I can get on my iPod, the better.

Ahh it's a fantastic Lovecraft Love in!
Great to have Chris in as a regular and like JonHook states above, very handy to have this broadcast on the same feed, I'd hate to miss an episode.
To be honest, listening to a podcast purely on the Lovecraft media, thinga-migos and news actually made me more open to the idea of trialling the stuff. When I listen to the old podcast format, I'm usually waiting for you to get passed this stuff for an interview. It's a mindset thing, obviously.
Hey, I don't know if it's old news now but a friend showed me "Neonomicon" by ALAN MOORE (cool!!) the other day...have you discussed this or will you be???

Great stuff, guys. I always felt a bit behind the "Cthulhu scene" because I don't often have time to visit the site (and other Cthulhian sites) but now I can hold my head high, confident in the knowledge the Elder Ones bring to me on a timely basis.

Looking forward to developing some Monophobia too!

Just finished listening to show number 1 and congrats on the spawning of a new show. The tentacles of the Yog Radio empire grow ever longer... and another place to hear Caththu at large again.

I enjoyed listening to Paul and Chris talk of all the Cthulhoid-news that's new and approved for public consumption. Hopefully no more will the news be relegated to olds... Don't worry about the length, its a new show (BTW when will episode 0 appear?) and I'm sure it'll find its own equilibrium in time.

Good to have Chris on a show with Paul again (he was a most excellent guest host on Yog Radio 44 - but we miss the lovely Val...), but will he become a regular presenter of NfP? Or will the other Yog Radio presenters be rotated in to co-present the show with Paul?

As someone who used to work in a chinese restaurant, will I now be required to ask "...and theeeennn?" in all future missives? ;-)

A cracking good start - looking forward to the next edition soon.

...and theeeennn?

Should have said earlier how useful I find News from Pnakotus.

It is a great way to be kept up-to-date with all the various bits and pieces coming out here, there, and everywhere! Cheers for this!

Looking forward to hear what Chris has for us next time! :)

Out in all the usual places. We're still settling down with the new audio set-ups and so I'm quieter than usual (if not less verbose). ;) This is simply due to uneven recording levels.

Apologies also for the audio blips about 25 minutes in; it's a weird tech issue I'm trying to resolve. Computers are great when they work and nightmares when they don't!

Thanks for a great show, Paul and Chris. News from Pnakotus is an absolutely fantastic way to find out how to spend all my hard-earned money! I thank you, my bank thanks you, Capitalism thanks you... but my wife might hate you.

Cheers! ;)
