Class is in session

I’ve been an on again/off again horror fan for a few years, and I’ve always been really picky about them, so much so that I have a hard time finding ones I enjoy. Alex and Andrea have become a great way for me to find great movies, learn a lot about the genre as a whole without wading through the stuff I won’t enjoy. I’m not much of a podcast listen-to-er, but I’m working my way fairly quickly though the Faculty of Horror’s back catalogue. Plus they’re just great people with great values, and I have a hard time separating content from its creators, so thanks for being wonderful you two!

Sets a high bar

For podcasts and horror and pop culture analysis in general this podcast is hard to beat. Two incredibly intelligent and charming humans discussing my favourite genre - doesn’t get better.
