The Lexicon of Dread podcast kicks off with a chilling retelling of H.P Lovecraft's masterpiece 'At The Mountains of Madness'. Told from the perspective of a survivor of a failed Antarctic expedition, this novella is a cautionary tale about digging too deeply in Earth's remotest corners. What starts off as a routine fossil hunt quickly transforms into a mind-bending nightmare, as two men come face to face with Earth's most devastating secret...and the evil that calls it home.
 
A close examination of language — its power to inform and misinform, to elucidate and obfuscate — from renowned Columbia University linguistics professor John McWhorter. A true polymath, McWhorter analyzes the words and phrases that dominate our discourse and make the headlines.

Beneath the ancient city, Dyer and Danforth discover an elaborate series of carvings, which tell the city's history in pictorial form. These carvings also reveal the identity of those who built the city, and dwelt there. Whatever they were, they were not human. And what does all this have to do with those strange objects Lake found in the cave?…
 
It wasn't a mirage. The dead city is real. Unthinkably massive, with bizarre, arcane architecture, it has lain hidden from the world for aeons. The city is a relic of a time when the earth was young, and the Antarctic was a tropical paradise. Who could possibly have built something like this? Dyer and Danforth search for answers, exploring the ruin…
 
Reeling from the gruesome discovery, the shocked rescue team set themselves to the task of locating Gedney, the one member of Lake's crew not found among the butchered bodies. No one can understand why some of the prehistoric creatures were buried in crude snow graves...and why the rest are missing. Dyer and his research assistant, Danforth, decide…
 
It's the day after the incredible discovery, and all communication with Lake's camp has been lost. Fearing for his colleague's life, Dyer leads a rescue mission to Lake's last known location.

Professor Lake, the expedition's resident biologist, becomes increasingly obsessed by the enigmatic fossils. Ultimately, he leads his own party on a sub-expedition to find their origin.

Turns out that some languages are less intelligible through a mask than others, and, believe it or not, it all depends on how often you use certain consonants. It’s called the McGurk effect and it’s the closest that linguistics comes to actual magic. * FULL TRANSCRIPT * From Booksmart Studios, this is Lexicon Valley, a podcast about language. I'm J…
 
There’s a lot of passionate argument about whether “Critical Race Theory” should be taught in schools. But the meaning of CRT differs greatly depending on who you talk to.

Umbridge is one of those characters the reader is supposed to hate and despise, but she isn’t a Death Eater, she’s just a nasty person. Sirius sums this up well by saying “The world isn’t split into good people and Death Eaters”, and Umbridge is the perfect embodiment of this maxim, showing the nuance that Rowling can give to her characters. Not ev…
