Devil’s Elbow Podcast #12: Silent Stalker by R. T. Cusick and Skeleton on a Skateboard by Tom B. Stone

Wing recaps Silent Stalker by R. T. Cusick and Graveyard School #2: Skeleton on a Skateboard by Tom B. Stone (aka Nola Thacker aka D. E. Athkins). Around the 21 minute mark, she gets a little deep about mental illness, the damage books (and other pop culture) can do, and her exhaustion over living with a mental illness. And then it gets much more fun with the ridiculous joy that is Graveyard School.

The Devil’s Elbow Patreon

image of patreon page

Well, it’s been quite a couple months, hasn’t it? Lots of changes around here, and all the guest recappers are killing it. Podcast episodes start up again in July. I’m grateful to all of you, readers and listeners and fans, for sticking with Devil’s Elbow during all this change. Y’all are the best.

One more new change for June: I’m pleased to launch our Patreon. For as little as $1 a month, you get access to an exclusive Patron-only feed, and the rewards just go up from there. (Bonus episodes! Bonus recaps! You can star in a Very Special Episode!)

Regular monthly recaps and podcast episodes will still be available for free, as always. But there will be Patron-only episodes and recaps, along with other rewards. I love what we do here, and I will keep doing it no matter what.

Patreon allows creators to connect with their community, and gives the community the chance to help produce the work. By supporting the Devil’s Elbow podcast on Patreon, you’ll help provide hosting, upgraded recording equipment, and, once we reach enough Patrons, payment for our hard-working recappers.

Thank you, again, for all your support.
