The Podcast That Dares Not Speak Its Name 5: The Signalman

Rish here. It has been many months since I put out an episode of my original solo podcast, the one which should not be named aloud. It's been so long that I can't remember if I used to post them here or just send them out to Dunesteef subscribers.

But, I recorded these before I ever had my Rish Outcast, so I need to release them somewhere. In this one, I perform and discuss Charles Dickens's "The Signalman." Hilarity does not ensue.

Right click HERE to download the episode, select Save Link As, and save the file to your hard drive.


  1. I really enjoyed that story, Rish. I hadn't heard it before. I don't know how long ago you recorded, but I will also be featuring a Dickens story this month with some spooky elements. Great minds think alike.

    But for "The Signalman", I think stories like this work so well due to the solitary nature of the job the characters hold. Hours and hours, alone in the dark. It's the reason I have always been attracted to lighthouses and the hearing how these keepers lived and worked. Good stuff.

  2. Agreed. I love "The SignalMan" HP Lovecraft Literary Podcast did a review of the story, which I loved.

    Your reading was a great rendition and still my favorite.
