Last month in horror podcast land was all about crossover episodes and Halloween Spooktaculars! It was a topsy-turvy world where hosts were guests and guests were hosts. And it was glorious.
Ladies of the Fright Episode 22: Michael David Wilson on Childhood Nightmares, This Is Horror Origins, Personal Growth, and the Girl in the Video 🔗
THE CROSSOVER WALKS AMONG US. I’m used to hearing Michael David Wilson as an interviewer (not interviewee) on the This is Horror Podcast, so it was a delight to have the tables turned and learn about his upbringing and works in progress. As usual, hosts Lisa Quigley & Mackenzie Kiera made their guest feel right at home and it resulted in Michael sharing interesting details of his life, as well as his personal philosophies. It’s a must listen for all fans of This is Horror.
Books in the Freezer Episode 27: Women in Horror featuring The Ladies of the Fright
RETURN OF THE CROSSOVER. The Ladies of the Fright join the ladies of the Books in the Freezer podcast for a discussion on creepy books written by women. Listen for a ton of intriguing recommendations that cover all areas of the horror genre. Every time I listen to this podcast my to-be-read list grows. IF YOU ARE READING THIS THERE IS NO EXCUSE—LISTEN TO THIS PODCAST AND READ MORE HORROR BY WOMEN!
The Weirdest Thing I Learned This Week – The spookiest things we learned this week
The Weirdest Thing I Learned This Week capped of their first season with a Halloween Spooktacular. And you know I love a good Spooktacular! There were two stand out “weirdest thing” stories that horror and weird fiction fans would enjoy: fetuses turning into stone in utero and death by autopsy. Need I say more?
Story Unboxed Episode 10- The Lottery by Shirley Jackson (with Ladies of the Fright, Lisa Quigley and Mackenzie Kiera)🔗
REVENGE OF THE BRIDE OF THE CROSSOVER. So, I didn’t actually listen to this one because I haven’t yet read The Lottery by Shirley Jackson (I know, shame on me), and I don’t like listening to podcasts discussing a story I haven’t read. BUT I had to include it because it’s another crossover episode—this time with The Ladies of the Fright joining the boys at This Is Horror, for the (normally) patron-only podcast Story Unboxed. Check out this episode if you want a taste of just one of the many perks of being a This Is Horror patron.
