Welcome friends. It’s almost midnight, and you’ve found your way to The PikeCast. Come along as we careen through the catalog of the most formative horror writer of our young adult days, Christopher Pike. From adult perspectives, we’ll revisit these YA books our parents probably would never have let us read had they known what lie inside. We tackle one book per episode, in a freewheeling and unbiased chat. So grab your battered paperback, pull the flashlight from the kitchen drawer, climb under your bed covers and devour a good book with us.
Whisper of Death
Join us on The PikeCast as Cassie, Becca, and Cooper spend some time with teenage suicide, abortion, and revenge! Whisper of Death presents a picture of an empty world, filled only with you, your boyfriend, and some people you know from school. And a witch (or something) who wants to torture you (for some reason). Come along as we talk Whisper of Death!
Die Softly by Christopher Pike - The PikeCast
Join us on The PikeCast as Cassie, Becca, and Cooper spend some time with cheerleaders and cocaine! Released in 1991 (shortly after a show about small town highschoolers, murder, and cocaine, Twin Peaks premiered) this book paints a very unusual picture of high school life, full of perverts, wanton kinky sex, non-monogamy, casual drugs and drinking, and guns just hanging around. Yunno, like real high school. Come now, let's talk Die Softly by Christopher Pike!
Becca, Cassie, and Cooper sit down for a special preview episode of The PikeCast where they talk about how each of them discovered horror. Cassie and Cooper detail the nostalgia they have for Christopher Pike and Becca is shocked, being a Pike newbie, at some of the things they recall.

A brilliant new podcast, my new favorite!
The Pikecast may be young, but I’ve been having a wonderful time reading along with the show. My friends don’t read in the same genre as me, or at all, so it’s been wonderful flying through these pulpy relics and tuning in to hear the hosts talk about them (there are a lot of moments where I say “yes! I had the same thought!” out loud to my phone). The hosts are wonderful and you can tell they have good chemistry.
It’s early days, but if you all are in it for the long haul, I would definitely recommend doing what you can to provide the best and most even sound quality among all hosts. I hope the show gets the support it deserves to aid the production!
Christopher Pike was a huge part of my horror fandom formation. Awesome podcast. Like hanging out with your good friends.
