Remigius Alcott Bradshaw had a bright future ahead of him as an anthropologist, until he discovered the Arkham Carvings languishing in the museum at Miskatonic University. At first, they were a tantalizing mystery, a local curiosity with no known culture of origin, a puzzle waiting to be solved. But as the decades drew on and his obsession with the enigmatic tablets grew, he pushed his colleagues and loved ones away, becoming a bitter, reclusive hypochondriac who reveled in the ruins of a promising career. Now, Bradshaw’s nephew Eddie has become a budding young scholar himself, and he wants nothing more than his dear old uncle’s approval. At the urging of his therapist, Dr. Farnsworth, Eddie sets out to complete the work that his uncle could never finish and decipher the tablets. When Eddie’s breakthrough leads the trio on a journey into a lost subterranean city, they soon learn the reason why an entire civilization was sealed away forever, and the true meaning of Bradshaw’s life’s work comes to light.
This is the first installment of a four-part retrospective that we like to call Geek Century, in which we examine the evolution of nerd culture in the past hundred years. In this episode, we take a look at some examples of fantasy, science fiction and horror from 1900 to 1925: namely, the works of L. Frank Baum, George Méliès, H.P. Lovecraft and Edgar Rice Burroughs. Then, we (finally!) play some voice mails that our listeners have left us, and are left to deal with the psychological traumas they inflict. Put on your beanies and get ready for a blast from the geeky past!
