Featured on Radiogram, 10/25/17: Halloween!

Oct 25, 2017

Listen to Radiogram this week to prepare yourself for Halloween.


Holly Tannen, Mistress Of Folklore and channeler of Entities from the Half-Astral Plane will join me in the studio for some stories, some music & a bit of historical context.

Holly studied folklore with Alan Dundes at U.C. Berkeley. She edited the prestigious Journal of Anomalistic Phenomenology, and is now professor emeritus of disinformation technology at the Mendocino Institute for Sustainable Voyance.

. . . Holly lives on the fringes of the primeval Pygmy Forest where she raises prize-winning Mendonesian Pygmy Velociraptors, volunteers for the Velociraptor Rescue and Rehabilitation Center, and directs the choir of the Church of Our Lady of the Unwarranted Assumption.

The Year Without a Summer

from the blog, Imaginary Worlds produced by Ed Molinsky

June 16, 2016 is the 200th anniversary of the night Mary Shelley began to write, "Frankenstein, or The Modern Prometheus." Scholars have long speculated what Frankenstein can tell us about scientific hubris or "playing God." But Professors Gillen D'Arcy Wood and Ron Broglio think the book has just as much to say about how we adapt to "acts of God." In other words, Frankenstein was imagined in a year when the Earth's climate was thrown off balance and the weather was wildly unpredictable.  Sound familiar?



Frankenstein by Mary Shelley

This is the Willamette Radio Workshop's 2004 production.This award winning production of Mary Shelly's Frankenstein, adapted by Cynthia McGean is a full-blooded masterpiece. A tale of science and passion, creation and betrayal, love, loss and horror.


The cartoon graphic is from a page about Mary Shelley's writing of Frankenstein at Gavin Aung Than's remarkable blog, Zen Pencils. His work & range are awesome!  Check out a few of his comic versions of notable quotes.
