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 books or 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.

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.

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?

Honorable Mention

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.
