Death: everyone does it. Sex: it sells. But can we sell you on the concept of sexy death? Have a drink with us and Dick, podcast host and sex/kink educator, as we talk about death fetishism and his personal history with it. We talk about the allure of finality, safety concerns, and misconceptions about this too taboo subject.

Books and studies referenced in this episode were:

Dissecting the Zombie Film

October 16th, 2018

00:0000:00

Movie spoilers ahead! This week we have a drink with Bill and delve into the world of film. The occult and religion have a big role in cinema, so we narrowed our discussion to two movies that explore Santeria to... differing effects: "I Walked with a Zombie" (1943), and "Angel Heart" (1987). Join us for a drink as we chat about the actual craft of film making, the history of the medium, and give some background insight to what makes a movie spooky. We also touch on the important subject of racism and xenophobia in movies that use other cultures for shock value, the importance of doing your research, and such taboo subjects as Mickey Rourke's ass.

Check out Bill's work in I Don't Get It and American Caesar. And be sure to reach out to him on Twitter!

Movies referenced in this show include "The Haunted Castle" (1896), and E. Elias Merhige's "The Begotten" (1990).

Dungeonology 101

Demons and monsters have been a part of the human psyche for as long as storytelling has existed, but one of the most interesting modern iterations of monsterkind is how they've become part of the games we play, even sympathetic characters we want to be! That's right. This week we're taking a look at Dungeons and Dragons, and comparing the monster lore in the game to two influential pieces of hellish literature, Dante's Inferno and The Lesser Key of Solomon. Professional D&D "homebrewer" Ned Turner sits down for a drink with us as we delve into the depths of devilry and delierium!

Click here for a link to Ned's work in game-making, and here to see the character sheet for the monster we created in the episode.

Book Review: Grist for the Mill

August 30th, 2018

00:0000:00

Ram Dass is synonymous with the Eastern philosophy movement that swept America and Western Europe in the 60s and 70s, but how many have acutally read his books? Would you think they'd be too lofty and intimidating, as befitting a learned and respected guru? Or would you think they would be rambling and nonsensical, like the memoirs of any celebrity of the drug-highs of the 60s? Would you be suprised to find out that they are neither: that they are starkly simple, down-to-earth musings of an unassuming middle class man? Listen in for a review packed with quotes and a rant breaking down why you shouldn't take being a philosophy major too seriously!

You can buy this book on Thriftbooks or Amazon

Worst. Pope. Ever.

August 8th, 2018

00:0000:00

This week we delve into the Vatican, and get a run down on what the pope is supposed to do, and talk about three popes who failed miserably at that. There's a lot of slander, bribery, and excommunication ahead. From literal f*ckery that rivals any modern reality show, to trials more inane than anything Pheonix Wright has ever had to deal with, papal history is a weird place. Come join us to find out just why #FormosusDidNothingWrong and why Hitler's Pope doesn't deserve the bad reputation history handed him.

follow these links for a close up on the parts of the Sistine Chapel where Michaelangelo put Pope Julius II and Biagio de Cesena on blast.

And, if you wanted to see an illustration of the Cadaver Synod, here's a fantastic painting on the subject.

The Meme-ing of Life

July 14th, 2018

00:0000:00

Kids these days and their memes! They're all around us, but what do they mean? Why are they everywhere, and why are they funny? We chat with Tobin about how they work as a form of communication, as a form of social commentary, and as a form of art, following in the footsteps of Dadaism. Going beyond, in fact, when looking at the 2016 American election, and how public opionion expressed itself. How far do memes go? Do they go too far? Listen, and weigh in!

REVIEW: C.G.Jung’s “Psychology & Religion”

July 3rd, 2018

00:0000:00

Carl Jung, one of the founders of the feild of psychology, had written several works exploring the concept of religion. What was it, from a psychological standpoint, and how should one address its functioning in a patient? In this book, the reader not only gets some insight into his opinions on that, but a snapshot at 1930s Europe and the state of Christianity as Protestantism became increasingly splintered and atheism became more and more the norm.

You can purchase the book on Amazon, or at Thrift Books.
