Lowbrow Lowdown Podcast: Episode 1 The COLDVIR-20 Killer

COVID-19 literature is going viral, and we’re reading it so you don’t have to!

Episode 1 of the Lowbrow Lowdown podcast and Damien and Natasha tackle their first piece of pandemic prose: The COLDVIR-20 Killer. What happens when an anti-mask, anti-vaxxer, right wing conspiracy theorists writes a novel? Tune in to find out!

Here we are thinking this whole thing will be a slew of bad erotica, and the first title we pull out of the hat is an alt-right COVID thriller. Yes your eyes don’t deceive you, we’re about to see how a right-wing conspiracy theorist writes a character with an arts degree. Major content warnings, this dude is racist, sexist, homophobic and never learnt the principles of ‘show don’t tell’.

Lowbrow Lowdown explores the cultural moment in front of us right now and how it manifests in pop, trash and pulp culture. Season 1: Pandemic Prose is all about self-published literature of the coronavirus.

Covid Claus is Coming to Town (Kissing the Coronavirus Chronicles) Lowbrow Lowdown

In our season finale, Natasha and Damien return to the incredible mind of M.J. Edwards with Covid Claus is Coming to Town (Kissing the Coronavirus Chronicles). A wild tale of COVID, Christmas and erotica. Christmas will never be the same after reading this erotic tome.Rating out of five masks:Natasha: 3/5 😷Damien: 3/5 😷More importantly, we introduce our next season of the Lowbrow Lowdown: Unpacking the Undead.Season 2 of the Lowbrow Lowdown is all about zombies. We will explore the hypothesis that zombie movies, TV series and books provide us with a snapshot of culture and society at the time of their creation.Damien and Natasha will explore the zeitgeist, through a trashy, undead lens that touches mostly upon horror, but will cross over into action, comedy, sci-fi, dystopian and apocalypse sub-genres. We can’t wait to watch (and in Damien’s case, rewatch) lots and lots of zombie flicks. And to share our laughter-filled opinions with you. Do you have questions, comments or want to share your thoughts on what we're reading?
