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.

The Harry Potter Lexicon website has been in existence for almost two decades. Over that time, J.K Rowling thrilled us with her magical creation — in novels, interviews, on her websites, on Twitter, and more. And here at the Lexicon, a small group of dedicated fans have worked very hard over all those years to catalogue all the magical details she revealed. The Lexicon website has always been seen as the gold standard for careful research and faithfulness to Rowling’s created world, all beca ...

After narrowly escaping the Shoggoth, Dyer and Danforth return to their plane, determined to leave the Antarctic behind forever. The clouds part just long enough to offer a glimpse of those other, distant, supernaturally huge mountains...and the mysterious light they emit. As they fly away into the raging wind, Danforth witnesses something which ca…
 
Everything has changed. There is only one goal now: leave, and leave very, very fast. As Dyer and Danforth run for their lives, they can hear their pursuer not far behind them. But the identity of that pursuer is worse than they could have ever imagined.John O'Brien による
 
Gedney has been found...at least, what's left of him. Dyer and Danforth have barely recovered from the shock, when another reveals itself. Life in this unhallowed place exists in the form of a vast colony of blind albino penguins. The final refuge of the Old Ones can't be far away now. But what are those strange shapes lying motionless in the tunne…
 
Dyer and Danforth are not alone in the dark. As they near the tunnel to the abyss, they discover items from Lake's camp. This includes paper on which drawings have been made: drawings that match the style of the Old Ones' carvings exactly. When they finally discover the source of this debris, the final mystery of the murdered Lake expedition is sol…
 
The carvings, which are growing more "decadent" and debased, continue to tell the Old Ones' story. Climate change and dwindling resources drove the Old Ones underground. The carvings reveal the presence of a vast subterranean sea beneath the city, where the Old Ones built a refuge. But that's that all: not far away lie mountains that dwarf those th…
 
Based on his and Danforth's observations, Dyer tells the story of the alien civilization, as revealed by the carvings. He tells of the creatures (dubbed the Old Ones) coming to the newly formed earth from deep space, their building of a globe-spanning civilization, their creation of all life on Earth (including the ancestors of humans), and their w…
 
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. When the team sights the gargantuan mountains Lake discovered, they witness an incredible projection from the past: the ragged ghost of a bygone age. And when…
 
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. Through the radio on his plane, Lake tells Dyer and the others of his sighting of a colossal mountain range; his team's discovery of an ancient cave filled with fos…
 
It's been years since Miskatonic University's disastrous expedition to the Antarctic. Professor Dyer, the expedition's leader, has broken his silence at last. Another, much larger, expedition is preparing to disembark... and Dyer is doing everything he can to stop it. Because he knows what cosmic horrors lie in the far south. He tells the story of …
 
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. What did CRT originally mean, and what does it mean now? What are our children actually being taught? And why do some terms tend to become so thorny over time? Click play to find…

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…

Season Three is Here! Hello, everyone. Back in January, 2018, I created a new short-form podcast called The Harry Potter Lexicon Minute. I had planned on a shorter title — The Harry Potter Minute — but discovered that there was already a podcast with that name, so I added the Lexicon’s name. The podcast ran for over 160 episodes, through November o…
