Episode 514: Joseph Campbell in a Jar

September 16th, 2022 | Robin

In the Gaming Hut we look at a largely foregone phenomenon in tabletop, the roleplaying tournament.

At the behest of beloved Patreon backer Dan L, the Tradecraft Hut examines Project Coast, South Africa’s apartheid-era chemical weapons program, and its head, Wouter “Dr. Death” Basson.

Esteemed backer Chad Ward meets us in the Mythology Hut to ask that we expand our previously parenthetical beef with Joseph Campbell into an entire segment.

Finally forward-thinking backer Tennant Reed visits the Consulting Occultist for the esoteric motivation behind repeated thefts of the preserved head of reformer and utilitarian philosopher Jeremy Bentham.
