Episode 42: The Laki Eruption

In the late 18th century, the Netherlands really had it out for Iceland.  Maybe it was all the red-hot magma, acid rain, and sulfur-filled air, courtesy of the Laki craters?  Fire, brimstone, a Dutch hate-boner, and a fire priest.

Why teach a class about 1930s German's descent into fascism when you can just show the whole school how it's done?  Not-so-secret salutes, rigorous discipline, a nation-wide underground, and a magnificent leader...

Leaning into "... and the music they make us listen to" from our tagline, Leigh and Peter discuss where universally panned albums went wrong.  In this inaugural edition, we talk about what happens when you seemingly pull two artists out of a hat and mash them together.  "I am the table". Lou Reed, Metallica, and Lulu.

In a time after hair metal was king, Great White were still carrying the flame... unfortunately, it was right into a venue filled with highly flammable material and no sprinkler system.  Made up words, pyrotechnics, heavy black smoke, and a reason to never go to a live show again...

A new feature is born!  With our shift to one major disaster a month (in addition to regularly scheduled Tragedy Tuesdays), we'll be trying out new features to take the place of the second major disaster.  Don't think of it as losing a disaster, so much as gaining new content.  This time: Ruinous Rewind with Peter and Gerri.  Can Peter retell the Plague of Athens in 10 minutes?  Will Gerri have new insights into a familiar tale since she, like, totally "listens" to the show?  Only time, and you listening to this episode will tell!

For a music scene that generated such awesome bands, the Norwegian black metal community sure were a bunch of miscreants.  Church burning, stabbing, blast beats, stabbing, the dark circle, and stabbing.

The Great Chicago Fire wasn't the worst fire ever to hit the United States.  It wasn't the worst fire in 1871.  It wasn't even the worst fire in October of 1871... The second episode in our October of Sorrow features one of the gnarliest fires yet, and maybe even a "darkbar".  Human torches, flaming logs, and hell on Earth.

Things got a bit hairy in Salem in 1692... let's just say it wasn't a good time to be feeding urine cakes to dogs and cracking eggs into Venus glasses.  Oomancy, divination, possession, the 17th-century legal system, and a dark prophecy...

Episode 38: Darby Crash

In the late 1970s, two friends got straight-As in fruit-eating and crystal meth.  Luckily for the trajectory of punk rock, they turned their talents to music, gave up their real names for punk alter egos, and began wreaking havoc on stages across Los Angeles.  Cast your mind back to a time when The Germs weren't just responsible for a global pandemic...

When the going gets good, Marvel got weird.  Forget Iron Man and Thor, it's time for Nightmask and Star Brand!  Sorry, you've never heard of them?  Maybe sticking to what works is the best way after all.  Come take a ride into Jim Shooter's mind as he steered the Marvel ship into some really strange places...
