    I know what you're thinking...resolutions? They never stick, and we'll likely bail out by February. Instead of gym memberships, we'll be paying for untouched, obscure streaming services. Not. This. Year. 
    Here's some genre goals we have for 2022.
    What are yours?

    Ronald Gene Simmons (LIVE from Camp Frightday Pt. II)

    Well, folks...here's just a bit of the madness you missed out on if you weren't in attendance at the latest Camp Frightday. A real doozy of a Holiday Hellish situation. One of the most prolific cases of family annihilation, with years of disgusting torture and abuse to boot. It's Ronald Gene Simmons & the Mocking Bird Hill Massacre.
    ATTENTION:
    December 29th, 2021, at 8:30PM (MST) we'll be hosting a Wisdom Talk about navigating research sources, sifting through misinformation, and sharing truth within the conspiracy, cryptid, & true crime space.
    Join us!
    Ask us questions!

    We'll see you soon!

Best podcast ever

Simply the best horror podcast out there the show is simply a good blend of byrons cool calm and collected personality mixed with Kelly’s blunt sassy and informative lingo simply love the show love you Byron and Kelly stay awesome

Kelly is actually just stupid

I just listened to the Scary of 61st episode and… wow. I thought Bryan was pretty good but Kelly has no business reviewing movies??? Just constant projections and critiques based on nothing but her perceived bad vibes of the director? Like just true contempt for art. I haven’t been that annoyed with a commentator ever. Has she seen a movie before? If you have to label every character or moment or film as good or bad please just go watch scooby doo.

Simply the best

Like most listeners, I have quite a few shows I listen to every week. Out of all those shows, I look forward to frightday the most.
