Episode 48 – Obsession!

Good evening, and welcome to the Darkly Lit Podcast, September edition. I’m sorry we’re a little late, but to be honest I just couldn’t think of a good theme until the last minute, and by then it was a little too late to record the show. Tonight, we tell a tale of loss, love – and obsession. Three of them, actually. First, I’ll read Edgar Allan Poe’s Berenice, where a lady’s smile is perhaps the most delightful thing a man can imagine. Then, we’ll be speaking briefly about another tale of unhealthy obsession and romantic dread – Twilight. I’ve heard some people complain about the knee-jerk reaction to hating on the series, and I’ll admit that I’ve done it myself in the past. But tonight, I’d like to explain my real concerns with the series – and, in the process, maybe cast a little light on the mythology of vampires, and the increasingly creepy way that love and romance is viewed these days.

We also have musical offerings from both Nox Arcana and a new artist, Tarby! Tarby’s works can be found on SoundCloud, through the following links.

Saturday Show

I was going to try recording tonight, but then I got roped into answering a survey. Gyeah, marketing peoples.

At any rate, I’ll put the show out on Saturday. This month’s theme will be obsession, and feature a reading of Berenice, a rant about Twilight and modern romance in general, and music from a new artist!

See you then!
