In this episode:
- Tonight: Horror Literature. *chamber music starts playing*
- But before that, Ian talks a little bit about his experience at Scare-a-Con. In short: it was fun!
- Isaac Bidwell, the artist Ian mentions. Warning: Some gory/disturbing content.
- Dracula Has Risen in the Polls, the podcast-parody written by Frank Conniff (of MST3K).
- Fio and Ian take on the gigantic topic of horror literature, its origins, and where it has gone in the past three hundred years or so.
- ...and show very quickly that they have done none of the research omg.
- Alternate title for this episode: Vaguely Remembering Books We Read in High School.
- Ian teases a special addition to the podcast for the month of October, in celebration of Halloween coming up!
- Correction: The podcast adaptation of Dracula written by MST3K's Frank Conniff is titled "Dracula Has Risen in the Polls."
- Again, neither of us were in top form for this podcast, so rest assured, it's likely we'll be touching on at least some of the topics or books mentioned on this episode again in more detail in the future.
- I'll link it here once I have a post of the pictures from Scare-a-Con put together. Watch Tumblr for it.
- Opening: Tim Curry as Pennywise the Clown in Stephen King's It
- Intro music: "This is My Design" - original song, music by Ian. More on this as it develops.
- Outro music: "A Little Priest" - Original Broadway Cast, Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street | YouTube | iTunes |
