Need a Transcript: Please Help!

After a good, long run, we have decided to close our forums in an effort to refocus attention to other sections of the site. Fortunately for you all, we're living in a time where discussion of a favorite topic now has a lot of homes. So we encourage you all to bring your ravenous love for discussion to Chuck's official Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr and Instagram. And, as always, you can still post comments on all News updates. Thank you for your loyalty and passion over the years. These changes will happen June 1.

Hello everyone!

I am a high school English teacher, and I am writing the curriculum for a Science Fiction course that will be taught next year at our school. [I]Frankenstein[/I] is going to be a part of the class and I want to introduce the book with an interesting story that Chuck Palahniuk has told on tour. In the Postcards documentary, Chuck talks about how horror reflects the contemporary issues of a society and he talks about what the classics reflected.

I beleive in that same speech, he talked about how [I]Frankenstein[/I] and [I]Dracula[/I] came to be (people sitting around on a rainy weekend trying to scare each other). I could be totally wrong and this may be a part of [I]Haunted[/I] or a part of the Haunted tour. I am not entirely positive.

Either way, I am hoping that someone will be able to identify these two things for me and tell me exactly where I could find them-- or even better, to provide me with a transcript.

I would appreciate the help because I am really looking forward to using this work in this new school curriculum!
