EPISODE 27: DECEMBER DARKNESS

www.whatareyouafraidofpodcast.com

The darkness is oppressive this time of the season, and horror authors T. Fox Dunham & Phil Thomas return with episode 27 to explore the long nights, providing you some entertainment to get you through the cold season. They bring you a mix of #ghost stories, banter, film crafting and dark fiction drawn from all over the space-time continuum.

After talking some cultural philosophy about the coming winter holidays—Halfway Out of the Dark—they open the show with another true ghost story told to them by Doctor Berrett Ravenhearst from Jim Thorpe, PA as part of their new segment, ghost stories of Jim Thorpe. Fox spent the summer collecting #paranormal experiences from the small mining town in the mountains of Pennsylvania. Crossed Connections, narrated by British folksinger David Walton is another story of the dead reaching out through the phone in a series of supernatural connections or coincidences. You decide.

Phil Thomas talks film making and crafting as he overcomes common problems facing #indie #filmmakers who do not have the resources of corporate studios yet want to produce professional movies. He’s working on the final edits of the short film, A Short Term Effect, soon to be released.

They also talk about their new line of t-shirts available through TeePublic. Phil & Fox have brought in several depraved horror artists to create new designs. They’re available here for purchase along with other items such as mugs, laptop cases, cats. Would you eat What Are You Afraid Of? cereal? The hosts discuss the possibility—better with bat’s blood, not milk.

Scottish & Canadian blues artist Wily Bo Walker returns with a new song from a collaboration with The Rattlin’ Bone Theatre Show—another dark R&B dirge called ‘Shoot Me Down.’

They close the show with another reading from the KGB Club in Greenwich Village, The Dark Ones Rise—a special recorded on location hosted by T. Fox Dunham to soon be featured through the podcast. Fox reads his potent tale of a Nazi commander hunting the last elf to cure the world of false hope, a story based on Fox’s survivor’s guilt after surviving a rare lymphoma. The Last Elf.

The show is available through all major podcast services and is on Friday nights at 9PM at PARA-X RADIO. They need your true paranormal experiences. Check out the guidelines at the website and email them to whatareyouafraidof117@gmail.com. They come back in early December with the return of occult scholar Katie Jordan then #horror author John Foster.

EPISODE 26: ZOMBIE TURKEY

 

www.whatareyouafraidofpodcast.com

 

Horror author T. Fox Dunham & horror filmmaker Phil Thomas return after a two week sabbatical, recovering from Halloween. They are energized and ready to bring darkness. This time of year is the time of night, of winter, and it is vital we remember just what kind of creatures await us in the long long night.

To celebrate Thanksgiving, Fox & Phil have named this episode, Zombie Turkey, episode 26. On this special episode, they bring A Zombie’s First Thanksgiving—a comedy sketch recorded by the Bloomsburg players about an eccentric couple trying to keep the holiday alive even though most of the world has been overrun by zombies.

Doctor Berret Ravenhearst from his new age story, The Emporium of Curious Goods in Jim Thorpe, PA kicked off the host's new series, Ghost Stories of Jim Thorpe—a series of true collected tales from northern Pennsylvania. The first ghost story, read by British folksinger David Walton, tells the tale of a ghost cat seen by the owners and patrons alike.

This is also the first episode playing part one of the literary series Let The Dark Ones Rise—an evening of horror authors recorded onsite from the KGB Bar and Club in the East Village, NYC, hosted by T. Fox Dunham. This will be a special available in complete from this podcast feed, but for each episode, they will play one author reading his material. First, we hear Shawn Macomber reading his short story from Savage Beasts, an anthology of stories inspired by horror music from Grey Matter Press.

To finalize the show, after Phil and Fox’s banter, they bring you a new band out of the Czech Republic, playing a dark musical melody meant to be the soundtrack to your darkest nightmares. Nemeur plays from their Shadows of a Druid album, Caves of Damnation, played with permission from the band.
