Synopsis

The Sunset Remira seniors' home has been atomized. So, too, the Edgehill Remira seniors' home. The Grist: Podcast is hosting Dr. Richard Stoneheart's analysis of the tragedy at the Sunset Remira. The government and the mainstream media blame terrorism. Dr. Stoneheart disputes this. Forces much darker than terrorism are at work, he says. Forces that transcend time and space. Forces described by pulp fiction writer H.P. Lovecraft almost one hundred years ago when he was inspired to create the Cthulhu Mythos. "The disaster at the Sunset Remira is only the first of many to come," says Stoneheart, "and there's nothing we can do to stop it."
