In a particularly satisfying episode, filmmaker and author Polly Schattel joins the show to talk about her debut novel, The Occultists, a richly-detailed, propulsive, and sometime gruesome period piece/ adventure story available now from JournalStone Publishing. It's a wide-ranging conversation that includes Polly's early years in rural Alabama, the research that went into her book, and a lot more. Folks who have read The Occultists should stick around till the end for a spoiler-y discussion of a few key events and characters.
