OddSalon is a beautiful collection of wolpertinger-loving historically minded nerds of drinking age who get together every two weeks and tell each other good stories about the amazing lives and creations of people in the past. I heard about OddSalon recently, immediately signed up to talk about cutthroats, and gave my talk a week ago on August 23rd. The theme of the night was Mischief, and the other talks involved the Hellfire Club, cryptozoology, Satanism, and pirates. I’m very much looking forward to the Heist show next week.
I have matched up the audio with my slides from the night and present to you here my latest rundown of what cutthroats are, where they came from, and what fun can be had with them.
In this talk, I say and show vulgar words. Be warned and enjoy.
