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 to deep into the mines was just the first mistake.

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.
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.
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.
We return for a visit with the good Pastor of the Tabernacle of the Elder Covenant, as he and his family prepare to relocate.
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.
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!
"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?
Who speaks for the young dead lost beneath the fair earth? The Boy comes to Barlo.
An interlude.
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.
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.
An interlude in one part.
Ten year old Sarah Avery continues to deal with the fallout of the elders of Barlo's choices. A promise is made.
Darkness comes to the tiny town of Barlo in the form of the worst mining disaster in Kentucky history. Young Sarah Avery runs.

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.

Definitely reminds me of the rural south. By the end it was a little boring though.

Excellent, atmospheric story telling. And as a lifelong Kentuckian, it's so nice to hear a podcast by some one without an accent. ;-)

I love the vulgar poetic prose that does so well to convey the feeling of the story, much more than just recounting events. who writes this? I'm in hendersonville, proud to have the cast so close to us, in Appalachia

This podcast is amazing. The music, the narrating, the setting. It's very good and worth the listen. It will probably hook you in almost immediately. Also, the patreon merch is 👌

LOVE IT! The narrator's cadence and colloquialisms compliment the themes and imagery. Good Lord I miss the South, thanks for this spooky podcast! Nothin' scarier than good southern-gothic mountain lore. I can't wait to hear more!
