It is absolutely safe to go back to work. You have nothing to fear... except death or a debilitating bout of Long Covid...
Just a reminder if you live in England that under current coronavirus safety laws, the Rule of Six now applies to all public gatherings – whether you are inside or outside the Circle!
It's Freaky Friday and the Weird Weekend starts here with the latest episode of the Weird Tales Radio Show. This week author & editor John Linwood Grant tells us everything you ever wanted to know about Occult Detective Fiction plus we discuss our sometimes pointless psychic powers & echoes from the future.
Random pictures from around the interwebs including Conan the Bacterium, a weight-loss diet from Vogue magazine in the 1970s, Covid-19 signs gone mad - how big is this virus if it can drive a car? And the ultimate in multitasking: a butt plug/door stop.
It's Sunday – time to chillout with my latest Americana Music Radio Show – we're looking at the albums chart this week but we've also some cracking new singles by Rhiannon Giddens, Chris Stapleton & The Jorgensens plus we have a great cover of Night Moves by the Little Red Kings.
OK, it's a spoof news story but some of the points are all too apt especially Step 2: Suppress the part of your brain that experiences shame + Step 7: Before hitting 10,000 followers, scrub social media of all those times you were very racist.
