This is the official podcast for "In the Desert of Set," a Pagan and occult website by G.B. Marian. G.B. is a devout Setian minister of the LV-426 Tradition who writes about life as a polytheist in contemporary times, with random long-winded detours into ancient history, classic horror movies, and all kinds of other stuff. G.B. is so long-winded, in fact, that he's launched this podcast to provide listeners with an accessible alternative to actually sitting there and reading all of his content, which has been known to make people's asses fall asleep.
I find "killer mummy" movies annoying for the most part, but there are a couple that have stuck with me through the years, including the 1932 classic with Boris Karloff and the 1959 Hammer remake with Peter Cushing and Christopher Lee. Here I explain why I enjoy these exceptions, and why I usually roll my eyes at the rest of this subgenre.

In this sermon, I tackle one of the most persistent anti-Setian tropes: the idea that Set is a "god of evil." In reality, the true "anti-god" of the Egyptian pantheon is the monstrous Chaos Serpent, and Set plays an important role in defeating this hellish beast every night.
