It’s another Myth Movie Night. Grab your moonshine, break out the passport, and start up your VHS player. We’re visiting London in the classic 80s horror film, An American Werewolf in London. DON’T GO OFF THE ROAD. We’re serious.

This week, Eric recommends Monstrum, a new show from PBS studios that looks at humans’ unique drive to create and shape monster mythology through oral storytelling, literature, and film. It digs deep into the history of those mythologies, and we think you’d love it!

Content Warning: This episode contains conversations about suicide, self-harm, gore, death, and mental health. (National Suicide Prevention Hotline)
