Join us today, Monday 27th October at 2pm SLT Designing Worlds studio in Garden of Dreams for our Halloween special – a trip to one of the moodiest and most sinister regions on the grid — the town of Innsmouth. And Europeans – remember that now the clocks have gone back, that’s an hour earlier than usual!

Innsmouth is a fascinating region – based on the horror stories of HP Lovecraft (whom many call the most influential horror writer of the 20th century), it has plenty of mysterious and hidden places to explore – all in the tradition of Lovecraft’s mysterious New England coastal towns. It was also, of course, an important location in Season 1 of The Blackened Mirror (as we shall learn).

But more recently, Innsmouth has been in danger of being lost. A campaign has begin to save this wonderful region by its supporters, led by Arik Metzger., who – together with Terra Volitant – joins us on the show.

Find out more about this campaign, the stories of HP Lovecraft and Innsmouth itself in tonight’s Halloween special show – don’t miss it!

Join us today, Monday 6th October at 2pm SLT at the Designing Worlds studio in Garden of Dreams for our special 250th episode (set on the island of Matanzas), as we talk to Ebbe Altberg (aka Ebbe Linden) about Second Life, and about plans for the future platform.

It’s a full and wide-ranging discussion, as we discuss the future of Second Life, problems that have arisen – especially failures of communication – and, of course, the new platform that is being developed by Linden Lab.
