RTS 05: H.P. Lovecraft’s Racism

The Strangeville train just keeps on a-rollin, gang! New month, new serialized audio book and NEW controversial topic to discuss! Since February is black history month, the boys could think of no better topic to put in the forefront than the new whipping boy of the social justice literary community: H.P. Lovecraft.

In this episode, Kevin and Jeremy discuss Lovecraft’s racist views, how they affected his fiction, and whether or not his influence and works should be banned from public consumption.

But first they introduce this week’s reading! This week on RTS, we debut Kevin Strange’s Lovecraftian novella MCHUMANS. Ricky, Chef, and the rest of the gang are tasked with providing Lord Cthulhu with catering for his big ritual ceremony wherein he intends to bring the rest of the Elder Gods back to this plane!

The boys finish the episode by prepping fans for next week’s episode: The internet’s racist smear campaign against Lovecraft!
