Slayed

Enola loves horror and shows that it’s for everyone. It’s undeniable when you listen to Slay Away. The round table of diverse guests range from super fans to authors and other horror content creators. While I first checked out the show for horror cinema talk, I soon discovered that each episode deep dives into the genre in general. It helps listeners find new things and people to discover. For instance, I now plan on checking out the guests’ content thanks to this podcast. Give this a listen and subscribe now, especially if you enjoy horror at any level.
