The book is the story of a doctor and his terrible secret.
The tv show is also about a doctor and his terrible secret except with shiny buttons, guns and Johnson from peep show.

For this episode, I talked to Erin who is the host of SubverCity Transmit and voice actor on No Sleep Podcast and Congeria Podcast. She also runs an awesome, spooky online store called Never Not Clever. So I’m incredibly grateful to Erin for making the time to talk to us.
The film we are chatting about is Bram Stoker’s Dracula (1992) also known as Francis Ford Coppola’s Dracula. Erin knows so much more about the movie than I could possibly hope to learn and among the many insights she has to give, she touches on the influence of Winona Ryder in the production, the Academy Award-winning costume design by Eiko Ishioka and the very deliberately rudimentary special effect that can be such an obstacle to new audiences discovering and engaging with the film.
Other subjects we touched upon include:
- Lord Byron, because he always pops up
- The Symbolist Movement
- The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen
- Ghost Hunting
- Urban exploration
- The 1991 movie Hook
- and armadillos… because I just cannot get over this
Again apologies for my brevity!
