Curating and protecting the ancient wisdom of mankind and others from beyond the ravages of time. Each Friday evening, at the start of the Sabbat-time, Lektor Finn J.D. John reports on the activities of our eldritch scholars and theosophical prefects, and reads from one of the books in the late Professor von Junzt's collection. This is the weekly broadcast from the Great Stone Tower at the Friedrich Wilhelm von Junzt Library of Forgotten Worlds, a trans-temporal institution of eldritch learning located in Old Dusseldorf.

My new favorite fiction podcast
Great readings of pulp classics. The eldritch intros are also fun. I now have a newfound respect for Conan the Barbarian. Can't recommend this podcast enough!
This will take you on a venture of the mind. You will get lost in Finns voice and timing.
These audio recordings of all the old pulp favorites are excellent. I loved Red Nails and the Frost Giant’s Daughter. Finn JD John does such an excellent job but the creme de la creme is his introductory narration. He really sets the mood and his soothing, slightly sinister voice is like the second coming of Vincent Price.
Take your time to listen to several of the wonderful introductions. You’ll come to love them as much as I.
