Heightens Each Horror Experince

I am so glad I was introduced to this podcast. The horror genera is so inherently nuanced and filled with such incredible potential for emotional, spiritual, and mental depth. Listening to Nathan and Reed heightens each experience in so many ways. Their comfortable rapport, filled with humor and thought provoking concepts is an excellent way to follow up any horror (or semi-horror) film.

It has also gotten me so excited to see other horror films that would normally be outside of my radar or just that I haven’t seen yet.

Best FOGgin podcast ever.

Ladies, Gentleman, people of the internet: if you're not listening to the Fear Of God podcast, you're doing it wrong. This is a show ripe with humor, heart, hope, beauty, and most importantly all the spooky you could ever want. AND MORE (cause there's a merch store with cool stuff you should check out.)
Reed and Nathan bring thoughtful, insightful, and more often than not poetic takes on horror films and various mediums of art. This podcast, from a personal standpoint has been a companion for me in navigating nuances of faith and offering hours (HOURS I TELL YOU) of entertainment, thoughtfulness, at times a tear or two, and fantastic findings of the holy in the horrific. Sincerely - listen to this cast. It's so worth it. I can't give you a money back guarantee - but i CAN gaurantee you'll find at least something, if not a cornucopia of, things to take away from these conversations.

Movies in a New Light

I'm a fan of horror movies generally, and every time I listen to The Fear of God, Reed and Nathan manage to make me see the genre in a new light. It's refreshing to hear new perpsectives, especiially about some of the classics that people have been talking about for decades, like THE SHINING. I strongly recommend.
