Very good episode guys. I have to say that “The rats in the walls” is in my top 5 favorites from Lovecraft. And I managed to learn something. I didn’t know that Howard and Lovecraft had began their correspondence due to a letter from Howard to Weird Tales.
This is a very dull fact but I got ludicrously excited when re-reading this story to find the protagonist locked up in Hanwell asylum which is just up the road from me in west London. It’s actually still a mental health facility but in th 1th century was famous for being of the first asylums that didn’t use restraints on its inmates. Isn’t it nice to know that Mr Delapole was treated humanely in his final raving, auditarilly hallucinating years?
I utterly love the podcast and am working my way through it from the start. Will be devastated when you finish.
