    Show Overview
    Old Gods of Appalachia is an eldritch horror fiction podcast set in an Alternate Appalachia, a world where these mountains were never meant to be inhabited. This world feels eerily similar to the hills and hollers we’ve grown up with, but there are some tell-tale differences. Names of towns and counties may be altered. Historical events slide forward or backward in time. And then, of course, there are the monsters. The live show includes a staged storytelling performance similar to an old-time radio play, featuring show creators Steve Shell and Cam Collins, a rotating cast of professional actors, and live musical performances.
