For this week’s show, I’m joined by Dr. Miranda Corcoran! She teaches English at University College Cork where she also teaches American Literature. She’s taught courses on horror, science fiction, and intersections of psychology and literature. All the way from Ireland, thanks to the magic of Skype, welcome to the show Dr. Miranda Corcoran!

Synopsis: Mr. David Ellington is backpacking through Europe just after World War I, the Great War. Near exhaustion, he finds himself at the door of a hermitage run by the Brothers of Truth. He hears a howling sound emanating from the halls and he eventually finds out that the brothers are keeping a man locked up behind a staff of truth. Even though Brother Jerome, the head of the brothers, warns Ellington that the man is actually the Devil, Ellington chooses to release the man anyway. To Ellington’s horror, the man transforms before his eyes into the Devil. Several years later, after WW2 and the Korean War, he’s managed to track down the devil and lock him up again… and tries to convince his maid not to let it out.

Creator of Websites, editor of content, wearer of vests. This man is said to be "The Jack of All Trades".  Dean has his hands in most parts of the website one way or another. The original incarnation of Geekade, "G33k Life", was Dean's brainchild. While Dean can be found on a number of shows like when he was the former co-host of the Stone Age Gamer Podcast or the current host Vest and Friends or talking about video games on YouTube and Twitch, he is the guy behind the scenes making sure that the site does everything it's supposed to every one else can do their job. There's not a problem he can't solve.....or at least punch and scream at until it doesn't exist anymore.
