My friend Mr Jim Moon has been podcasting marvelous stories and essays from the “great library of dreams” for five years. But he’s just now started a Patreon campaign! And I’ve just signed up to support his great endeavor.

Patreon: Hypnogoria

If you’ve not heard his show, Hypnogoria, you’ve been missing out.

Mr Jim Moon is to the weird and the wonderful what Dan Carlin is to history and politics.

There has never been anything like Hypnogoria before, and podcasting is the only medium in which it could exist.

Hypnogoria is the most thoroughly researched and thoroughly executed oral history of the “weird and the wonderful” you’ll ever hear.

Here are just some subjects that Mr Jim Moon has done episodes about:

the history of werewolfery
the history of Hammer and Amicus films
the life and films of Sir Christopher Lee
the life and films of Peter Cushing
the life and books of Sir Terry Pratchett
the stories of H.P. Lovecraft
the ghost stories of M.R. James
the history of Batman
the stories of Clark Ashton Smith
the stories of G.K. Chesterton
the history of Halloween
the history of zombie movies
the stories of William Hope Hodgson
the life and books of Richard Matheson
the stories of E.F. Benson
the life and films of Ray Harryhausen
the origin of Alien
the stories of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle
the stories of H.G. Wells
the stories and poems of Edgar Allan Poe
the history of found footage films
the life and films of Vincent Price
the stories of Guy de Maupassant

and those are just the shows I remember!

“This is the greatest event in all the history of the human race, up to this time. Today is New Year’s Day of the year One. If we don’t change the calendar historians will do so. This is our change, our puberty rights, bar mitzvah, confirmation, the change from infancy into adulthood for the human race. We are going to go on out not only to the Moon, to the stars … we are going to spread through the entire universe”

Years ago I pointed out that we’ve all read hundreds or thousands of pages of Robert A. Heinlein’s fiction, and yet we have so very few recordings of him speaking. That post is HERE.

This video, recorded just a few minutes before the landing of Apollo 11, features Walter Cronkite, and Bill Stout, interviewing Arthur C. Clarke and Robert A. Heinlein!
