I've tried to avoid linking to X posts here, as only people with an X account can read them, but I don't see a way around that here. Of course you can register an account to read the posts and you don't have to otherwise be active.
(2) My wife and I have been listening to the first season of The Lovecraft Investigations podcast, we are really enjoying them; has anyone else tried them besides Rarebit Fiend (who commented on my recent post.) The modern updating of Lovecraft and the references to Aleister Crowley and other figures is a bit reminiscent of Illuminatus!, or so it seems to me. Does anyone know if the show's creator, Julian Simpson, is influenced by RAW?
