We're fans of Lovecraftian stories, movies, comics and the like. In each weekly podcast, we discuss a specific H.P. Lovecraft story - what it's about, how it reads, why it may have been written and what other works of art it's influenced. Since concluding Lovecraft's stories, we've been covering other weird fiction that inspired the author, mostly from his essay 'Supernatural Horror in Literature.' We regularly have talented guest readers and contributing composers for our music sections. It's fun, and a little creepy. Won't you join us? The horrid truth is that you already have!

    Hey Podcraft,
    The show is rippin. I am new to the pod cast and i have just finished listening to them all in order in the past month. My head hurts and my nose know bleeds for no apparent reason. Keep up the good work and maybe i can make it through a podcast without fainting.

    I also wanted to drop a line that i think it would be ripped to do a podcast about Lovecrafts influences and some of their works. There are some gems in there for sure. I won’t list them because you already mentioned them in the show.
    Although why no mention of William Hope Hodgson? I can totally see “The house on the borderlands” and “the night lands” influence on Lovecraft. Not so much in his writing but as imagination stimuli. And if you haven’t read Hodgson do not read “the night lands” first. There is a reason it is described as “the best/worst sci-fi, horror novel ever”.

    Thanks for the show.

    Truly entertaining!

    HP Podcraft is a great podcast! You’ve hit the right amount of intellectual discussion and easy-going humorous banter to make this truly entertaining.

    Furthermore the readings are done to a professional standard with superb voice acting, atmospheric music and effects.
    The 3D readings are particularly great – a different experience for every listener and deeply immersive (c.f. readers getting a different experience from the same book). Expand your mind and your social group, now!

    Jackpot!!

    Wow, what a find! Was turned on to HP years ago when I found one of his short stories in an old horror anthology. I thought I had read everything he’d done, but thanks to you guys there are rich veins still available.

    ‘I Am Providence’

    Keep the nightmares alive!

  13. Hey Chris, Chad, thanks so much for all the great work your doing on hppodcraft.com. i love this show!!!!! i stumbled upon the podcast about 2 weeks ago and have been addicted ever since. Im a concept artist and im currently deep into designing the world and environs for a forthcoming horror video-game with a famous, but …. as yet unnameable hero of the genre. i’ve been listening to the pod-cast, working through the episodes while i work and its really helping to put me in that damnably indescribable mindset best fitted to such dark and brooding endeavors ;)
    keep up the epic work chaps! oh and also many thanks to all your great readers, they are all great! esp. Mr. Andrew leman. umm also the audio design and music are just perfect.
    so….when and what story is up for ransom next? might it be the shadow out of time? hope hope….
    all the best guys.

    I have really enjoyed all your Podcast! Great handling of the subject matter with a mix of wit! Will miss it once the material runs out. You should start hitting other Mythos authors afterward. Don’t want it to end! :)

  15. Archard says:

    Happily addicted to listening to your shows. Has replaced the cd in my car :D

  16. HP Sauce says:

    Only recently found the podcasts and am working my way through them.

    The Shadow over Innsmouth part where you talked about the ‘get ready to die 30s’ had me in absolute stitches.

    Thanks for brightening my mornings with these dark endings. Cheers, guys.

  18. Patch says:

    General question: What’s the name of the Cthulhu-inspired lounge singer that Chris previously mentioned could be found on YouTube?

  19. Patch says:

    And love the show! I’m a dedicated subscriber and longtime podcast cultist!

  20. chris karriem says:

    Your site never ceases to amaze the mind…with its quintessential megalifts of narration, that is luminusly fraught with ageless moments that delight “us”…children of Lovecraft….we sit with amazement stricken upon our faces…hoping…against ageless hope, for your next me.acing Podcraft……

  21. Matt says:

    Just found your podcast and I’ve been listening non-stop for the past several days. I’m so excited that there are so many episodes to look forward to. One of, if not the best podcraft ever!

  22. Mark says:

    Love the PodCast! I listen to it every night as I fall asleep. Keep up the great work!

  23. Peter says:

    Was turned on to your podcast by a fellow tentacle head in Milwaukee, WI. Have enjoyed the discussions as well as the readings. Just joined the twenty-first century(HPL would disapprove I’m sure) and got a smart phone. Have been playing catch-up on old episodes.

    Quite enjoyable. Thanks.

    This was the single greatest thing I stumbled upon in 2012 (besides love, money, work, family support, Cake, coffee, Cthulhu, sanitation, the medicine, education, wine, public order, irrigation, roads, the fresh-water system, and public health).

    Anyway, excellent way into Lovecraft, and horror literature in general. Worked for me!
