Podcast! Ghost Stories, Weird Poetry, and All Manner of Old Xmas Weirdness with Christopher Philippo

I chat with Christopher Philippo, editor of Volumes 4 and 5 of the Valancourt Books of Victorian Christmas Ghost Stories. But we also talk about old doggerel (popular poetry), strange finds in old newspapers and magazines, and the antiquarian “thug life” of loving the hunt for forgotten treasures.

You can also listen at the Podbean site or on your favorite podcast app.
