Description

In the mountains of central Appalachia, blood runs as deep as these hollers and just as dark. Since before our kind knew these hills, hearts of unknowable hunger and madness have slumbered beneath them. These are the oldest mountains in the world. How dare we think we can break the skin of a god and dig out its heart without bringing forth blood and darkness? Old Gods of Appalachia is a horror-anthology podcast set in the shadows of an Alternate Appalachia, a place where digging too deep into the mines was just the first mistake.

Welcome to our Appalachia, where hearts are good, hands are strong and no one wants to talk about what sleeps beneath us. First come, first served.
They say there's a witch in that valley and you'd do well to stay away from there. Join us as we journey back to the settling of the central plateau and witness the power of mountain women.
Darkness comes to the tiny town of Barlo in the form of the worst mining disaster in Kentucky history. Young Sarah Avery runs.
Ten year old Sarah Avery continues to deal with the fallout of the elders of Barlo's choices. A promise is made.
An interlude in one part.
Cletus Garvin should have died in 1910 but instead has been the pastor of The Tabernacle of the Elder Covenant for the past seven years. Debts are called to account in the shadow of the Old Number Seven Disaster.
In the wake of the Old Number Seven Disaster, the Tabernacle of the Elder Covenant does what it can to save their own. Choices are made that cannot be unmade.
An interlude.
Who speaks for the young dead lost beneath the fair earth? The Boy comes to Barlo.
"To live forever and keep this land..." was the promise made. What happens when a promise is kept but with a vile and broken spirit?
Happy New Year, Family. There's no new story today, but there are plenty of announcements about the end of Season One and future storylines and Season 2!
Before our time in Barlo moves forward towards its inevitable conclusion, we take one last look back to honor a life that might otherwise remain overshadowed and left hanging from the branches of our family tree.
We return for a visit with the good Pastor of the Tabernacle of the Elder Covenant, as he and his family prepare to relocate.
In this, our penultimate episode of Season One, we examine what makes a home and the power of kinfolk as we say good-bye to young Sarah Avery.
Season One comes to a close as we follow Daughter Dooley to the far reaches of Last Harbor and witness what changed her and The Black Stag whose name sounds like, but is not Horn-ed Head or Hornet Head.
A whole new story set in the world of Old Gods of Appalachia. Exclusively on Patreon. Come tithe and come a with us to Esau County, VA in the fall of 1927.
The horror podcasting community is a vast and wondrous thing, family. We are pleased to introduce you to some of our extended family: The White Vault by Fool and Scholar.
To be a wolf is a thing of spring loaded joy, of black gummed panting death. Of pack and ground. Torn tendon and blood and broken bones in feasting abandon beneath a split and howling sky. But to be a wolf with the mind of mortal man or woman? No-we can’t be trusted with that kind of power without being broken by it. Not even wise women of The Clutch. Not even them.
In which we properly meet The Walker Sisters and their man Melvin.
The Walker Sisters and their man Melvin journey into the darkest night Baker's Gap, TN has known in thirty years in this thrilling finale to The Wolf Sisters series, originally performed live on Discord.

I'm so glad I somehow stumbled on to this after following a recommendation in the comments section of another podcast, this is fantastic! I loved the spooky mystical gothic story, the style of narration, the accent and timbre of the narrator's voice, the intro and outro music, the wonderful characters, basically everything! More please creators, the family needs to hear more.

I stumbled on this podcast by pure luck (and probably an algorithm). I have a friend from West Virginia who talks about home all the time, so I sent it to him since he is a big lover of both old gods and Appalachia. A week later he told me how amazing it was and that I should also give it a listen. I didn't right away since I have no context to connect the stories to... but then I finally decided to and ended up binging it all in 2 days. I'm hooked. Ride or Die for the old gods. The narration could put me to sleep (except it would give me nightmates) and the editing is literally unmatched. 10/5 stars.

This was a very scary episode. This is an outstanding episode and the narrator is exceptionally talented. I think he wrote this episode too.

I found the intro to be frightening and compelling. It was well-written and the actor is very talented. He really drew me into the story.

I was led to believe that there would be a season 2 beginning in March. We are now 2 weeks into the month and I haven't seen a new episode. Is there an updated timeline for when we will be seeing new content? I've come to love the podcast and would be terribly disappointed if it ended.

I was so lucky to have stumbled across this podcast. The writing and sound design are superb, but it's the narrator that really brings everything together.

i can't afford the $10+ patreon requirement in order to continue listening to what has become one of my fav podcasts.. i feel compelled to express my disappointment at this.. it's too bad that such great storytelling has to be hidden from greater listenership by the discriminatory pay curtain
