Spreaker Prime has been a godsend for me. They pay for my hosting, and place ads that generate further revenue for me. As a small-time indie podcaster, that is wonderful. But not every listener appreciates having to listen to even my minimal ads (I place the minimum required for the length of each episode, with you in mind first). So I decided to upload each episode to Patreon, starting with the latest episode first, Four Cupcakes, the anniversary episode, and going backwards. Then I will add each episode as I also upload it to Spreaker; that way, the feed will be in order.
So far, I have uploaded 69, 68, 67, the lost Halloween episode 27 in its entirety, and my segment alone from 27, so I have uploaded all of 2021. I am also uploading the scripts of each episode as I go along, so that I can catch up on scripts as well.
All you need to do to listen ad-free as a patron is snag your personal RSS feed, and paste it into your podcatacher application. Here’s Patreon’s step-by-step explanation, and here’s an instructional video for adding an RSS feed into most popular podcatchers:
Not a patron? Here you go, and I appreciate your support more than I can express! At one dollar a month, you receive all of the scripts, and at three, you receive the ad-free episodes and more.

I had misplaced my copy of Mark Z. Danielewski’s House of Leaves. I recently found it…and it’s fat with torn-up legal pad papers, marking pages. Which got me thinking…
So. Intermingled with other episodes on other topics, for the rest of this year I am going to do a deep-dive on this book and its accompanying album, Haunted, by Mark’s sister, Poe. There will be geeky horror analysis and reaction podcasting. I’ll podcast as I go, and do psychology/horror/history/parapsychology/physics geek-dives 😉 like I did with Stephen King‘s Eclipse series (Episode 19; website entry). I’ll schedule out my reading and the episodes so that this doesn’t become the House of Leaves show, so that there are plenty of other topics in-between. I’ll hopefully have some horror author friends on as well to discuss this book/phenomenon.
I hope this sounds fun to you! I’m pretty jazzed to re-enter the Navidson house.
