Matt and Joe are two old friends who love to read and write fiction, especially horror, science fiction, and fantasy. We’ve been meaning to start a podcast for a while, so here we go! We hope you enjoy our discussions and stick around to listen to our narrated fiction!
Tales of the Fantastic Podcast - Episode 4
The third and final part of our long conversation about our favorite Post Apocalyptic and Apocalyptic fiction (part 1 begins in episode 2 and continues in episode 3).

Additionally, we discuss the Music of Tangerine Dream ("Exit"), the song/video "You Got Lucky" from 1982, 1985's "Silent Running", & the Canadian band Godspeed You! Black Emperor (the song is "East Hastings" not "West Hastings" - Matt misquotes it many times!). In the Practices section, Joe leads us in a discussion of favorite exercies from "The 3A.M. Epiphany" by Brian Kiteley. We end the episode with a dramatization of J.N. Cameron's comedic horror story, "Funny People".
