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.

Episode 17 - Creepy Babies!

Kids! Why are they so damn creepy? Lisa and Yinh are joined by Kevin Coombs to talk about some of the weirder kids in the horror genre.  Damien! Gage Creed! Children of the Corn!  Along the way, we swerve off into various ditches regarding fake German heiresses, the creepiness of child actors in general, raccoon penis bones, and Lisa's on-again-off-again "thing" about Leif Garrett.

Episode 16 - Doll Parts

And now, the subject many would have preferred we didn't cover.  DOLLS.  From Annabelle to Chucky to the O.G. of haunted dolls - Robert the Doll - we discuss just why this topic is so creepy to so many. Along the way we talk clutter, the evil that is mayonnaise, and Lisa waxes eloquent on having intimate relations while a possessed doll is in the room. Felicia Ryan (of "Hi, Felicia!" podcast) guests.

It's nearly Christmas, "the most wonderful time of the year," and we tackle what that one line in that song - about telling ghost stories - really means.  A dramatic reading of A.M. Burrage's "Smee," plus the legend of The Belsnickel.  Also - Krampus porn, cat vomit, and why a can of peas is a nice Yankee Swap gift.

Episode 14 - Slay Bells Ring

It's the holiday season, and we keep Christmas in our hearts, and some other places too sophisticated to mention.  Christmas is scary enough, so why not pile on the horror with some tasteful Yuletide gore?  Lisa and Yinh are joined by returning guest Melissa van Hamme, who regales us with some fireside tales we definitely were NOT expecting.  Kevin Harrington sits in!

Let's take a stroll down Amnesia Lane, to a time when liking Dungeons & Dragons, heavy metal music, and (gasp!) horror movies could get you accused of worshipping....SATAN.  Yinh and Lisa are joined by author and musician Matt Ferrara. Join us on a dark journey where even Cabbage Patch Kids could summon the dark lord.  And by "dark lord," we mean Tony Danza.

We're in the double digits now, episode-wise, so why not talk about siblings?  Yinh and Lisa chew the familial gristle with return guest Jonathan Woodard (The Wrong Chaneys).  The Shining Sisters, Baby Jane and Blanche, Michael and Laurie...plus the usual tangents. Shirtless Saxophone Guy, spitting in little tubes, and how to deal with five inches of pig blood in your basement.

Episode 9 - Storytime!

Lisa and Yinh get cozy with a cheese board at Lisa's house, and tell stories!  Yinh reads a spoooooky short story by Matt Ferrara [author of the novel An Ocean of Maybe (2016) as well as the short story collection Young Drunks in Love (2001) and the poetry collection Five Seeds Enclosed in a Capsule (2002)].  Lisa just rants about changelings and the con artist who managed to pose as a 7 year old orphan.  Along the way - we talk cheese, dusty slits, and doll heads.  Pull up a chair!
