Lovecraft Gaming - Photo by Michele Brittany

The origins of the H. P. Lovecast Podcast can be traced to Adam Crowley attending the SouthWest Popular/American Culture Association conference in Winter 2015 and meeting other academics with interest in H. P. Lovecraft during a game night session. The earliest incarnation of H. P. Lovecast Podcast included academics Adam Crowley, Jule Schlag, Michele Brittany, Nicholas Diak, and Ashley Barry.

Currently, the H. P. Lovecast Podcast aims to be a monthly podcast to discuss derivative works of H. P. Lovecraft.
