S9 Ep. 4: Bloodsuckers

Spread the love

Hello dear listeners, and welcome back to another episode of The ODDentity Podcast on the PodMoth Media Network. Your bi-weekly foray into the weird, wonky, and sometimes downright spooky. This week I bring you vampire legend and lore and the strange connection it shares with early understanding of disease and affliction.

While I have your ear, I also wanted to let you know that I’ll be teaching the first of (I hope) many English courses this fall so episodes of the podcast might be staggered depending on the workload. The concept of teaching at the collegiate level is still quite new to me so it might take me a couple of weeks to get into the swing. As always, I’ll keep you posted as things progress.
