Your Favorite Monsters podcast

Feb 13, 2018

There's a creeping madness in the air, one that Your Favorite Monster know all too well.  On the docket tonight, everyone's problematic fav, HP Lovecraft paints the walls of Crystal Cove with his particular brand of splendiferous charnel, and really just stinking up the joint.
