Episode 141: Spirits of the Deep and Dark - A Dissecting Dragons Hallowe'en Special
The dragons once again break out the festive Samhain cheer, this time by looking at the phenomenon of Ghost Ships and the dead who met their end via water. The term 'ghost ship' can mean a few different things and there's something very creepy about both meanings. In addition, stories of the drowned dead feature especially vengeful spirits. Madeleine and Jules delve in to the subject, examining why 'sea ghosts' hit on many tropes of both Gothic literature and the classic ghost story. Why is it that the sea holds such sway over our imaginations? How have ghost ships managed to persist in modern media even when other ghost stories fell out of fashion. Tune into our Hallowe'en special to find out.
