This is our Halloween mix, I guess, mostly by default. There really isn’t anything especially “spooktacular” or “ghoulsome” about it, at least as far as CMGcasts go—hell, if you really want to confuse the shit out of some costumed strangers on your doorstep, may I recommend this podcast from the sweaty depths of last summer—but it’ll suffice: eye of newt and cauldrons of hell-broth; “chainsmoking nightmares”; chasing beasts; getting sick on psychedelic brewsicles; caskets; “strange signs in the sky”; french owls; collapsing empires; being “swallowed and shit, then swallowed again”; NSA spies; shifting underwater landmasses; mysterious strangers; what could probably be considered “night bus,” or maybe not, I mean who knows with this stuff anymore; and Demdike Stare. Invest in some powerful outdoor speakers, bring your own toe of frog, and crank this until hoards of people show up in Ebola-themed HazMat suits demanding tiny snacks:
