Children of the Night Podcast

Amado, Ethan, Aden, and Shilo The History!! In this episode we go into the history behind vampires and how they were first introduced into the world leading up to Bram Stoker’s creation. We also brought up the more interesting aspects of how the book was written, especially Stoker’s use of descriptive language and epistolary structure, and how these aspects added to the mystery and suspense of the book, despite the fact that we basically already know the story. Evidence: Pg. 40: “He is young and strong, there are kisses for us all.” I lay quiet, looking out under my eyelashes in an agony of delightful anticipation.” Pg. 43: “I awoke in my own bed. If it be that I had not dreamt, the Count must have carried me here. I tried to satisfy myself on the subject, but could not arrive at any unquestionable result.”

Really Cool Logo! I like how you have background music. I like how you talk about how the movie compares to the book because I have seen the movies and thought they were good. I liked how you give time for the author and the book. I got context. My favorite part of the podcast was Y'all talking about the symbol of vampire and the writing style.

The conversation was really dynamic and it was clear everyone knew what they were talking about. You guys did a good job with making the discussion flow smoothly and funny.

I really enjoyed the music, I feel like it might be supposed to be kinda spooky, but I found it really comforting and found that it kept the cast moving. The background knowledge given on the author and the book sounded very knowledgeable, and added to the professionalism of it. Generally I think there is a very nice group dynamic, that it is a pretty chill and knowledgeable vibe.

I love the music choice for the podcast. The general vibe of the podcast was pretty chill but I wish that you guys gave a little bit of information on the book (like a quick little summary for someone who hasn't seen Dracula movies and stuff). I like how you guys talked about the cultural aspect of it, and how stories of vampires tend to originate from folklore and traditional stories. Also, I think that your podcast name is really cute.

I enjoyed the background music a lot, it fit so nicely. I liked the information about the author, it was interesting to hear about what he is known for as well as the specific genre and what makes that significant.

I like your conversation and how you guys respectfully added on to each other’s points. I can also get an idea in the vibes of the book based off the conversation.

I love your choice of music throughout the podcast. It gives off an eery vibe and draws the listener into the podcast. You guys do a great job bouncing off of each other's points and incorporate your evidence really well.

You talk about the book and what it is about a bit before going into the book. You also talk about the history of the book and the author which is nice. The background music playing throughout the podcast is a bit distracting and makes it hard to listen to.

I felt that the title of the company fits the book very well. I also believe that you guys did good setting a tone for the podcast. You guys did a really good job on trying to keep it intresting by removing tension on the scary topic of a monster.
