Episode #33: “The Theft of the Thirty-Nine Girdles”

A transcription of this episode is available.

In this week’s episode, we close Hyperborea with a story from the, err, “master thief” Satampra Zeiros. That’s right, it’s time for the infamous “Theft of the Thirty-Nine Girdles.”

Join us next time as we reflect on the NecronomiCon conference we all went to at the end of August and go over what stories we’ll be covering next.

Episode #32: “The Coming of the White Worm”

We finally present our long-awaited “Coming of the White Worm” episode. Between power failures and illnesses, this was as much a monster to record as it was for Hyperborea. But now we’re recording more and back on track. Our guest is Mike Bukowski, who really does have a fake cult.

We swear to Tsathoggua that Rumology is a REAL thing.

Join us next time for the final story in Hyperborea “The Theft of the Thirty-Nine Girdles.”

Episode #31: “The Seven Geases” pt. 2

This week, we conclude “The Seven Geases” with returning guest Jason Thompson.

We’ve found that editing four voices together as compared to three (as compared to two on other Weird podcasts) takes significantly longer. But while we can’t promise a perfectly predictable schedule, we will keep these coming.

Phil was interviewed on Europa Report, which you can watch from Amazon or other video on demand services.

Next time, we’ll be doing “The Coming of the White Worm.

Episode #30: “The Seven Geases” pt. 1

This week, we welcome back Jason Thompson for the first of a two part episode about “The Seven Geases.”

The walkthrough maps Jason mentions are worth checking out for any D&D player. Given the nature of this story, perhaps he’d like to do one for the episode.

A note on transcriptions, they’re proceeding apace, thanks to help from several listeners, particularly @GenusUnknown.

Next week, we’ll have the second half of the story for you!

Episode #28: “Ubbo-Sathla”

This week, we’re covering “Ubbo-Sathla.” Our reader is Jordan Smith. As noted in the episode, this is the first story (chronologically) this is the first time Eibon is referenced in a CAS story. The Brundage cover we mentioned is below:

Next time, we’ll be tackling “The White Sybil” with guest reader @CrowGirl42.
