Hi! I'm looking for an episode which I think I heard on Podcastle, but it might have been Pseudopod as well. My search terms aren't helping me though! It had a long title that was something like "How Daddy kept the back forty and ran off the carpetbaggers." It was set in the South sometime after the civil war. A family has fallen on hard times, but they still have their land. Someone is trying to cheat/rob/drive them off their land, but little do they know that Daddy has been practicing dark magic and there's quite a lot of undead family members around to protect the property. The tone was definitely full of black humor. It's told from the point of view of one of the sons of the family, who is slowly coming to terms with the family 'business'. Does anyone else remember this one?
