Happy Halloween! #

For my favorite holiday this year, I joined the fine folks at KoPoint for their first annual Halloween Spooktacular. During the show, I spoke with a couple of my dearest friends, archaeologist Quentin Lewis and KoPoint’s own Dan Patterson, about the things we love about Halloween and the stories that make our collective skin crawl.

Over the course of the podcast, we have a varied discussion including segments on:

  • History of Halloween
  • H.P. Lovecraft: The Good and the Bad
  • Horror in Fiction and Media
  • Urban Myths
  • Our Personal Halloween Traditions

Along the way, we’ve included excerpts from some of the best classic horror stories from history, as well as a piece of original horror fiction written and performed by yours truly. We’ll also be releasing the audio of the story as a standalone piece of audio later, but for KoPoint listeners it’s embedded in the show as a special treat.

The show was a ton of fun to make, and I hope you enjoy it.
