…A friendly podcast about hell and some other stuff.
The DispatchIst is a friendly ongoing conversation about Hell in its many forms…as a story, as a social technology, as a mythology all its own. Side-topics may or may not include the devil, popular culture, comparative religion, Dungeons and Dragons, mixed drinks, horror films, medieval snuff porn, schadenfreude, whether Tundale could kick Dante’s butt (probably, maybe not in a literary sense), Norwegian death metal, latitudinarianism, and whatever else seems relevent this week.
Ep. 63 – Satancon: 5000 years of demonology!
Meanwhile, at Satancon, a shallow dive into a very deep pool…six millenia of demon stuff in 45 minutes…
Ep. 62 – Walpurgisnacht!
Did you ever dance with the devil in the pale moonlight, specifically on April 30?
Ep. 61 – There’s Something about Sheol
Mostly Old Testament conceptions of the underworld this week. It’s nice to get back to the actual topic of the podcast!
Ep. 60 – Suddenly Satans!
Talking about the developing concept of The Devil in the intertestamental period. PARTY CITY!!
Dante’s Inferno in Film
An ongoing list of Dante movie and film adaptations. Someday we will watch them all!
