This time, I'm joined by the lovely and incredibly erudite Gene Mayes - of various Pex Lives appearances and his own excellent new blog Being and Time Lord - to chat about the Gothic. We also focus specifically on the movie A Field in England, Ben Wheatley and Amy Jump's masterpiece of English Civil War-era madness, magic and mushrooms. There be spoilers here, by the way. We range pretty freely and get on to all sorts of other stuff including (but far from limited to) alchemy, John Dee, Hammer movies, Gothic novels, Marxism and Anarchism. It's a long one (just over 3-hours, so feel free to listen in fits and starts) but I hope worth your time.
