A Must-Listen for Horror Fans
Even though this show has ended, I highly recommend checking out the backlog! This is another amazing podcast with a killer intro! I love the musical introduction and how it makes me feel super pumped up before diving into the discussion.
Here’s the main crew:
Brian Keene – He is such an awesome podcast host! He’s so upbeat and he’s such a great speaker. I NEED to read some of his work soon. I have Blood On The Page sitting in my TBR stack that’s screaming at me to get into it!
Dave Thomas – I find myself nodding along a lot when I’m listening to Dave speak. I also share his hatred of going to the grocery store!
Matt Wildasin – Matt hits my funny bone. He’s got these quick one liners that absolutely crack me up.
Mary SanGiovanni – I love Mary! Her laugh never fails to make me smile or chuckle along with her. I recently read her book titled Chills and absolutely loved it!
Of course, each of these people have absolutely wonderful banter with one another. I really enjoy listening to each of them and I love seeing what their opinions are on certain things. I am so proud of all of them for not shying away from the very difficult topics.
However, with the last couple of situations, it was very clear how much it affected them just from the tones of their voices. It was obvious even before they laid it all out to the listeners. Brian Keene made a statement that things will need to change moving forward if he’s going to continue. I absolutely do not blame him for that and I hope that if they continue, whatever change they make makes this show much easier for them, and much more fun.
But back to my raving!
I always love hearing interviews with authors that I love. When I first checked the show out, I immediately downloaded the episodes featuring authors that I love.
Perfect Horror Podcast
The Horror Show with Brian Keene is essentially the perfect horror podcast. It may not be the oldest, but it is absolutely the pinnacle of what a horror podcast should be. The interviews are in-depth and often surprising in their candor, the co-hosts are as fantastic as the host, and it almost feels like sitting down for family dinner on a weekly basis (if your family happens to be wildly dysfunctional).
