MU Podcast 032 – New Orleans Mythos!


We take a trip down to Inspector LeGrasse’ stomping grounds in the Big Easy ! We even have a local to guide us around the area and point out the features of the Crescent City. It’s corruption, ghouls, swampland and Hurricane cocktails at O’Brien’s in episode 32 of MUP.

We recorded this episode using a new recording technique that allows us to have a separate audio track for each host. There are still a few bugs to work out of the process though, so echo and some odd dialog overlap or drifting may have gotten through the editing process. There is also a little clipping in the audio files, which sounds like static or scratchiness, so please bear with us as we get the new system tweaked.

We have a new contest!

We really want to promote the 50s era as a setting, so here’s what we’re going to do. Send in your ideas for a 1950s History Lecture segment. One or two paragraphs is fine, just try to give us the gist. Chad will pick his top three favorite ideas, and we’ll put them up on the forum for a poll. The winner will get their idea made into a script for a segment, and you can choose whether or not you want to record it yourself or just have Dr. Gerard do it. But either way, you’ll get a physical copy of the Atomic Age Cthulhu book sent to you as a prize.

We’ll take ideas until June 9th, and then we’ll have a poll open for another week, through June 16th. Results announced in Episode 34.

Submit your entries to:  Contest@mu-podcast.com


We have a new lecture from Dr. Gerard on the 1952 DC UFO Incident
