In which Tod reads Azathoth, which was first published in the Winter, 1938 issue of Leaves. A discussion of this story will follow.
While this reading isn’t particularly scary, do note, that this is a horror podcast, and may not be suitable for all listeners. This very short story touches on nihilism, urbanization, a longing for the natural world, innocence lost, and an out of body experience. If any of these topics are likely to upset you, please skip this podcast.
For ambience, we will hear Open Window New York City Soundscape at Night (Midtown Manhattan City Sounds) 4k by Nomadic Ambience and Relaxing Meadow with Ambient Nature Sounds, Wildflowers, and Mountain View - 8 Hours by Calmed by Nature
