Dial P For PulpDial P For Pulp is back from a year-long hiatus with Show No. 11: Citadel Pt. 1 and The Ship of Ishtar. So, if the loooong wait has meant you’ve dropped DP4P out of your podcatcher now’d be the time to re-add it. See in the show David Drage, the host, talks fondly about old pulp magazines, reviews a new pulpy publication, plays short (but pulp-filled) audio drama, podcasts the second and concluding part of a discussion of A. Merritt‘s pulp classic The Ship Of Ishtar and reads the first part of a pulp era story. In fact, included in this very show is Drage’s reading of a story from the Third Annual SFFaudio Challlenge. Woo-hoo!
