And another deadline flies by! Join us as we start a confused and rambling tour of Egypt, which is WAY TOO BIG TO COVER IN ONE EPISODE. But we’re going to try. Before we started, the pep talk is “we can’t do this, so let’s just lean into our failure.” And we deliver. Show notes are work in progress. Thanks for your patience! This episode brought to…

Things we have learned this week: The Dispatchist hosts are just as good at producing a “Jeopardy” parody as they are 1) playing them, 2) feigning normality, and 3) sound editing. Apologies for the audio this episode. Someday we’ll nail it. Show notes are a work in process, this episode was all over the place, we’ll be updating this over the next f…

This week we free-associate over the legend of Persephone, AKA Proserpina, AKA Kore. Some disagreement among the hosts as to what the center of her legend is, but we’re all in agreement that pomegranates clearly have some powerful afterlife associations across probably every culture on the planet, including the ones that don’t have pomegranates. Th…

Sooo many mispronunciations this week. Jacob apologizes in advance. Victoria mentions the very pretty Four Fox Sake line, which has just amazing design. Website is very pretty! We are very, very interested in Joseph Laycock’s demonology course at Texas State University. And he’s got so much work out there that was on our reading list! Road trip to …

Image note – serpent wine glass for header image from Simon Curtis Antiques, with thanks. This week we return to Lilith with Part 2 of a very long conversation about the mother of demons. We open in media res,talking about incantation bowls, a fairly frequent source of demonological lore. These were used as traps for demons, spiralling prayers/abju…

This week’s recording went into overtime, so rather than have our listeners swerve off the road during their morning commute as Jacob launches into Kabballah minutia, this one’s a two-parter. Logically enough, we begin our conversation about Lilith with a preamble on 17 Magazine, Don Martin’s feet, Mangia’s phenomenal green pig pizza, mixed drinks …

Kicking off a new miniseries, “The Ladies of Hell,” which looks to be a rich and possibly incomprehensible series of passages to explore. But first, drinks! And ice cream! And VUCA. There is no more Victoria this week, There is only Volatility, Uncertainty, Complexity, and Ambiguity. Jacob struggles to keep up. Today’s beverage? The Real Housewife,…

So back in March we cheerfully yattered on about the latest infernal news: a fellow in black, mask covering face, attempted to flirt (?) with a subway passenger by handing her his cellphone with the message, “I AM SATAN” on it. We thought, “…well, that’s awkward.” And then we thought, “How could we make this…more awkward?” “I AM SATAN….and I made y…

Whew! Wrapping up four episodes on Mesopotamia, which was about twice as many as we thought we’d do originally. Hope they were fun! They may have deviated a bit from the central nub of the podcast, but we wanted to get a firm handle on the mythology that underpins…well…pretty much all mythology. And you couldn’t talk about Mesopotamia without talki…

Happy Easter! Though this one’s going out on Holy Saturday, and nobody says “Happy Holy Saturday. So that. In some traditions, this is the day where Jesus went to the underworld after he died, so we’re taking a deep dive into the descent to the land of the dead. But first some meandering. Because podcasts are such a vibrant visual medium, we’re goi…

This week’s free-wheeling chat starts and kind of ends with Mesopotamian demonology, but it’s our first talk about demons so we veer all over the millennia. Join us. Bonus points if you can find the narrative thread. As so many discussions about demonology begin, Jamin and Jacob spend way too much time talking about the cleanliness of their kitchen…

Another fun week in the ancient near east! Going further down the road of no return in the Mesopotamian underworld with a look at Erishkegal, the goddess of the dead, and Nergal, the god of death. They’re a great couple, give them a hand. Like so many of us, you may be wondering what folks drank for fun in Mesopotamia. Apparently their form of anci…

Well! It has been an absolute heck of a week as central Texas turned into our very own Lake Cocytus and we experienced five degree weather, some of us for the very first time. Don’t laugh, it’s not cold by everyone else’s standards, but we’re not rated for this, really. It’s good to be back to what we’ll generously call normal! No drink recipe this…

We start with a round of drinks and Japanese gods! Our guest Jason has a few words to say about the popular spiritual figure (God? Not quite? A version of the Buddha?) Jizo. He’s a patron of travellers and children. In our epiosode on the rivers of hell we talked about the Sanzu River, wherethe spirits of children are condemned to stack pebbles to …

Once again, Jacob proves that he knows nothing about booze. Victoria suggests that a Seven and Seven (with thanks to The Spruce Eats) would be a solid coping mechanism for this episode. The fruity “Gates of Hell” cocktail would be another option. We believe that if you, the audience, were at least a little buzzed, it would be overall better for our…

This week, urban legends! Two plates of hell-adjacent stories circulated by teenagers for teenagers…hellmouths, cryptids, and one dangerous poem. But first, random chatter. As always, two of the three hosts are dedicated to making The Dispatchist the best possible “Sandman” fan podcast we can. So when we found ourselves distracted by a possible app…

Well, maybe Episode 6 is too early in the series to wallow in complete self-indulgence? We don’t know…obviously. Because tonight we’re going to tackle Santa Vs. Satan, which was something of a Christmas classic in 1959, and is, today, solidly in the canon of good-bad Christmas films. Jacob thinks its “much more watchable than Santa Claus Vs. the Ma…

An extra-long, extra-rambly conversation about Krampus this week…happy St. Nicholas’s Day! Okay, it’s a fair cop, Krampus is only tangentially related to hell, and we spend more time talking about how he’s not related to hell than how he’s hell-adjacent, but such is life. Anyway, “The Dispatchist” aims to be a slightly boozy conversation about Hell…

Welcome back to our exploration of the rivers of hell! This is a two-parter, but we recorded it all in one go, so…there’s a few very minor continuity errors. Let’s see if anyone notices… This delightfully green picture of the “LA Water” drink was lifted from Tipsy Bartender, so do go there and experience the joy. Balut, you almost certainly didn’t …

First of a two-part chat loosely themed around the rivers of the underworld, which marked the borders of heck in Greek-Roman myth and still have echoes today. Audio challenge of the week, we had to switch back and forth between the better recording and backup recording, oi. So that’s a bit on the variable audio in part one and two. Apologies… Make …

Let’s talk about the devil. Or at least what he looks like. Handsome? Hairy? Horned? Bestial? Blond? Weird face poking out of his butt? So many options. Warning, we do spend a lot of time on medieval perceptions of Jews, so that’s a thing. 1:20 – I joke about the devil as being off-topic for a podcast about hell. It’s not QUITE a joke, hell’s an ap…

It’s episode one! Why hell? What on earth (or under earth) do the hosts think this is a good topic? I mean, right place, right time, for sure… Tonight we talk about expectations, preconceptions, take-aways, and run through the briefest possible history of the realms infernal. Before we really begin, Jacob learns what “plain” is (apparently, beer.) …
