The Monster Guys Podcast: Episode 024 – Vampires, Part 1 (Bram Stoker’s Influence for Dracula) … In Case You Missed It!
Show Notes & Summary:
In case you missed it, way back in Episode 007: Vampires, Part 1, we dug up a conversation about the undead, and specifically the influences for Bram Stoker’s Dracula. We discuss those influences, and how modern literature has shaped our current view of the undead.
We also visit the legend of the Chieftan Abertach and how that story has patterned our modern Dracula story. True story? Legend only? You decide!
From stories in Easter Europe to the Emerald Isle and the influences of faeries on Stoker’s writing, we begin to peel back the layers as we prepare to move our conversation about the undead forward in the near future.
As always, thanks for listening and share in our musings about vampires when we were but wee podcast hosts near the beginning of it all for us.
