Episode 15 – The Lovecraftian: S.T. Joshi

S.T. Joshi is an author, researcher, and scholar based in Seattle, Washington. Since the age of 13, he has immersed himself in studying and chronicling the life and works of the enigmatic and highly influential American author H.P. Lovecraft.

Since this month sees the release of HBO’s adaptation of Matt Ruff’s novel Lovecraft Country, I asked Joshi to speak to me about the author’s complex legacy on literature, philosophy, and atheism and how we should think about his problematic views on race.

Joshi, who proudly describes himself as “technologically inept”, can be found here: http://stjoshi.org/

He is the author of the superb biography I Am Providence

#3.10 – Some Personal News! Hard to Believe – A Podcast About Belief

Today, we explore some personal news! Where has John been for the last month? Well, to explain the answer to that question, he decided to engage in his least-favorite mode of podcasting – the solo talk! This episode touches on some of the work he is currently doing researching the history of conspiracism and how it emerged into its current form, and sheds some light on what's ahead for the show (in short – it's not going away, but may well be a little wonky with scheduling…like today!)
