Disclaimer: These picks are 100% subjective and based on my personal taste. I don’t generally listen to fiction podcasts or podcasts with discussions about book/short stories that I haven’t read. Also, I might miss an episode or haven’t yet discovered a great podcast. For the podcasts currently in my feed, click here.
Ladies of the Fright Episode 14: Becky Spratford, Library World’s Horror Maven, Part Two 🔗
Part two of the interview with Becky Spratford continues to deliver a wealth of information on how libraries connect with readers and writers of Horror. In all of my podcast listening I haven’t heard this topic discussed so in-depth with so much useful information. A must-listen for any horror writer. Listen to Part One first!
This is Horror Episode 219: Patrick Lacey on Growing Up in a Haunted House, Bone Saw, and Sleep Paralysis 🔗
Listen to this one for Patrick’s stories about growing up in a haunted house, they’re freaking creepy! Leave it to host Michael David Wilson to ask Patrick Lacey about the line in his bio, “Patrick Lacey was born and raised in a haunted house,” that everyone else assumes is a joke. This interviewing style is why I love This is Horror, which has recently moved to two episodes a week. Patrick, write some memoirs of living in that house already!
BrainStuff: Why Does It Feel So Good To Be Scared? 🔗
This bite sized episode explores why we love horror fiction, films, haunted houses, and rollercoasters. It really resonated with the reasons I read and write horror and provided some interesting scientific background to it.
