Listened ... the outre alternative podcast idea sounds great. The recordings could serve an additional purpose, namely ambient audio that a Cthulhu GM could play when his or her players go to the library or newspaper morgue. After all, who *doesn't* need hours of recordings of shuffling paper interspersed with occasional exclamations of "By Jove what are those Belgians doing in the Congo?!" or "Hmm ... perhaps this advertisement is right; maybe my earnest romantic endeavours really are being thwarted by this thing called 'Body Odor?'
I would definitely download them.
Also ... I think back in the day I *did* buy a couple of those period ephemera kits, so maybe Dateline: Lovecraft actually is a spiritual successor or loathsome spawn. Who can say???
