007: The Monsters In Everyone's Closet

This week on Pathfinder, part two of our descent into the world of monsters. With the help of Professor Stephen Asma we look into what makes us so obsessed with the things that go bump in the night and where they came from.

This is part two of Monster Month on Pathfinder. This week we take a deep dive into the psychology, history and rationale behind monsters, and how at every step through civilisation they've been with us.

We're joined by Stephen Asma, Professor at Columbia College Chicago. You can find his youtube channel where he offers short workshop videos about how to create meaningful art that is infused with philosophy, history and psychology. He takes you into his own creative process, and offers helpful advice about idea development and image creation.

In part three of our monster series, we tackle the strange, cosmic monsters of H.P. Lovecraft. We'll see you next week.
