    65 | Horror | “Walk The Darkness Down” by John Boden & Favorite Movies About Cults with Jimmy Cajoleas!

    HAPPY BIRTHDAY, SANDRA! This episode was so much fun. Sandra, Scott, and author Jimmy Cojoleas talk their favorite movies featuring cults! But first - John Boden's novella Walk the Darkness Down, a truly unique and fascinating read.



    Sandra, on Walk the Darkness Down: "I always like to find horror fans something different, and this book is something different. If you're feeling in a little bit of a horror rut and want something that's going to blow your mind - something you're not going to predict what's going to happen and just doesn't feel rote or tropeish - I would say read Walk the Darkness Down. There's a few things that are gonna stick to [my mind wall] - there's a few tarry, gritty little bits that's gonna be real hard to wash out of there."

So much fun!

I love listening to these two talk about books! They do a marvelous job of breaking down plot, character development, theme…everything a reader needs to know. And their playful banter is so refreshing, especially given all the negativity in today’s world. Thank you so much!

Delightful Hosts!

This might be silly but I never have a chance to read the books, but I still love listening because the hosts are such nice people. Keep up the good work! Hopefully one day I can at least listen to one of the books. I listen while I paint. Thank you for keeping me company and for being so kind!
