    H.P. Lovecraft, Part 1

    We’re now over 2 years in to this show and it’s come to our attention that we’ve not covered one of the most influential writers in horror history, someone who has spurred the imagination of countless filmmakers, artists and even musicians, the creator of Cthulhu, H.P. Lovecraft. We've not only remedied this, but we brought in our friend Bob Reyer, of the Talking Comics podcast, to guide us down the dark depths. Here is part 1 of a 2 part, tentacled giant of a show!
