Roots Of Horror: John Wyndham And The Day Of The Triffids

Spread the love

An empty, apocalyptic London, survivors proposing radical utopias – and all while 9-foot, monstrous carnivorous plants roam the streets? It must be THE DAY OF THE TRIFFIDS, the most famous novel by John Wyndham, the mid-century British author famous for penning so-called ‘cozy catastrophes.’ Cian is joined at the Cabin In The Woods by Mr Neil Philips from the UK Wildlife Podcast to discuss Wyndham and the book, Soviet science, Cold War paranoia, mad botany, and 1950s apocalypse fiction. Grab yourself a drink, a pipe, and a tweed jacket for ROOTS OF HORROR: JOHN WYNDHAM AND THE DAY OF THE TRIFFIDS!
