Love it

I’ve only heard two stories but both were really good. Basque of the Red Death was hauntingly beautiful and I loved the interview at the end.

Love this podcast. I love Horror and loving Black voices in this genre. Tananarive Due is my favorite. I love Brandon Massey also. I just ordered Sycorax’s Daughter Anthology of Black women horror writers. RIP L.A. Banks.
