Swords & Shotguns #9 - What Is And Isn't Lovecraftian?

 Welcome back, mortals!

We were planning on making a whole episode on Lovecraftian movies but we quickly realized there's quite a lot of controversy what even counts as Lovecraftian and what doesn't! So this episode we delve into the world of popculture to discuss what we deem as worthly of being called Lovecraftian Horror.

Swords & Shotguns #8 - AI, Prosthetics, and Killer Robots

Welcome to The Future World!

 




This episode we delve into the world of science fiction. We will take a look at the issues often tackled in the genre that seem to creep into our own reality. But, because it's such a vast topic, I invited my good friend Chris to the conversation.

A few corrections:
Yes, positive alterations of a fetus in mother's womb are possible. That's what fetal surgeries are for. I only meant the natural state of the fetus when it's being developed through all the stages. But again, you could argue a proper diet and smart lifestyle choices also have an impact on the child.
