This episode we discuss the genre of Southern Gothic! We talk about the “key elements” of Southern Gothic fiction (plantations, swamps, secrets, and racism), gothic vs goth fiction, vampires, rural fiction, pessimism, the fantastic, and space crystal meth. Plus: One of us is utterly baffled by the popularity of this genre and we debate the differences between swamps and marshes.
