Stay Scary is a horror movie podcast hosted by Yinh Kiefer and Lisa McColgan. A rotating cast of artists and geeks join on to discuss themes and tropes in horror movies past and present.

Episodes

Lisa and Yinh talk to author Matthew Brockmeyer (Kind Nepenthe, Under Rotting Sky) about his upcoming collection of transgressive short stories, Nest Of Salt, as well as rural horror, backwoods witchcraft, living on a pot farm, and why Flannery O'Connor should be required reading, as early as possible.

Although it'll be a good long time before most of us set foot in one, we're talking HOTELS.  From The Overlook to The Bates to the real-life horror stories at The Cecil, you're gonna want to keep your door locked and make no unnecessary jaunts down the hall to the ice machine.  Lisa and Yinh are joined once again by Jonathan Woodard (The Wrong Chaneys) for a wholesome chat about psychic imprints, voyeuristic motel owners, and Best Places To Stay If You're A Serial Killer.

We are back with a FULL episode! And we are finally tackling the subject that a lot of people would rather we didn't: CLOWNS.  Joining us is our Very Special Guest - David Howard Thornton ("Art the Clown" in the fantastic "Terrifier" series). We grill David about the much-anticipated sequel, while also talking Pennywise, John Wayne Gacy, tulpas, court jesters, and why horror actors almost always are the exception to the rule "Never meet your idols."

Will the COVID madness ever come to an end? Will Lisa buy a plague doctor mask? Will Yinh have to yank the wax off her own armpits?  In this delightful minisode, we talk botched Tudor executions, where to find toilet paper, "Killer Sofa," and the perils of self-grooming.

Feeling a little antsy? COVID-19 sheltering got you down? Settle into a couple of FUN stories: "Mine," by Matthew V. Brockmeyer (read by Yinh), and a little history lesson from Lisa, about the one and only Typhoid Mary.

It's COVID-19 isolation time, and we are unable to record at the studio, so we're doing a Zoom-isode and hoping for the best.  Dialing in is return guest Melissa van Hamme as we touch base on how we're holding up, "The Shining" board game, "The Lighthouse," and building a sweat lodge with tarps and duct tape.  WASH YOUR HANDS.

It's the dark days of the Coronavirus.  SXSW has been cancelled, you can't buy hand sanitizer at CVS, and hazmat suits are the new black.  What better topic to discuss than NATURE GONE BAD?  Joining us is returning guest Nick Zaino, as we get into pandemics, rabid dogs, triffids, and a crow named Shit Turd.  Plus - a surprise appearance by local metal band Rhodium Plated.  Grab your Clorox wipes and your face masks and don't forget to wash your hands before listening!

We're tackling Catholicism, which is uniquely suited to horror in ways that most non-Catholics might not grasp. Anyone who grew up with a dog-eared copy of "Lives Of The Saints" knows this.

Lending a bit of credibility to our hot mess of a horror podcast is Harvard Kennedy School Senior Lecturer in Ethics and Public Policy (and nerd-of-all-trades) Christopher Robichaud

Let's talk iconography, relic classes, the Cadaver Synod, and why "The Exorcist" isn't what you think it is.

MUSIC IN HORROR. We’re all over the place with Ennio Morricone, Bela Bartok, Diamanda Galas, The Ramones, and which horror theme you want playing every time you walk into a room.  Returning guest Jonathan Woodard helps us work through the Jukebox From HELL.
