Shadow Trap Case 30: Evil Clowns
Custard pies at the ready monster hunters, Rosie and Bob are back for a Halloween special, as the Shadow Trap tackles EVIL CLOWNS.
What lurks beneath the greasepaint and how do we stop it? We've poured over Killer Klowns from Outer Space, IT, and a bunch of other jester texts, and we've come up with some ideas. Join us!
froliking with fairies in A Midsummer Night's Dream
Rosie and Bob are back for a summer special and we're finding fairies in A Midsummer Night's Dream. If e'er a shadow has offended, grab a trap and all is mended!
Shadow Trap Case 28: The Minotaur
The Shadow Trap goes classical this week, as we hunt the Minotaur through the twisting pathways of some choice texts. Join us for honour and shame, the magic of yarn, and the possibility of mercy.
Wicked tots, terrible plots
This week Bob and Rosie believe that children are the future, and they're not exactly thrilled about it...
Shadow Trap Case 26 - XMAS GHOSTS
We reach the end of the Shadow Trapping year but here's one last ghost story for Christmas. Join us for MR James, Charles Dickens, and a whole heap of solar issues.
Grasping for Greys
Wake up dearest listeners it's time for your probe. This time on the Shadow Trap Bob and Rosie discuss the modern enigma that is GREY ALIENS. Join us for plausible deniability, the hatred of past selves, and some very pervy experiments.
Entertaining, funny and intellectually stimulating
I’ve been listening since episode one and I have no plans of stopping!! Rosie and Bob manage to bring a blend of insightful analysis and levity to some fantastical subjects. I could listen to each episode multiple times and still hear new, interesting points that I may have missed the first time around.
Been a fan of Diane for a long time and for some reason just got around to listening to this! It’s so well researched and the discussion is wonderful. There hasn’t been a new episode in 5 months so I fear I’ve maybe binged them too quickly :) PS Any chance of the show being uploaded to Spotify in the future?
Fun, charming, insightful
I wish more analysis tackled theme instead of message. This podcast has clued me into art works I never would’ve considered.
