EPISODE 97: KING OF HALLOWEEN
COUNTING DOWN TO HALLOWEEN 2018
Horror baker Andrew Fuller is the king of Halloween! Andrew is a contestant on Food Network’s Halloween Baking Championship, season 4 and our esteemed spooky guest on Episode 97: KING OF HALLOWEEN. Horror author T. Fox Dunham and Andrew hang out during the episode, talking about his wonderful macabre baking and what it’s like to be on Halloween Baking Championship. Andrew shares his past, his motivation for baking and his great love for Halloween while sipping blood tea. The master baker shares several unique ideas for Halloween-themed baked goods our listeners can make at home. We also tell another ghost story to set the Halloween tone just right. A rebellious teen arrives late at a babysitting gig only to find her charge missing. Searching for her at a derelict home, she finds the wrong child—a dead child wearing old clothing. David Walton narrates this true ghost story, Babysitter Blues. Oh! And Andrew also hunts ghosts in his free time, when he’s not baking or on Food Network, and he and his husband have had many encounters with the other side. Andrew shares some of his ghost stories including a spooky tale about a decapitated head that appeared to him in his husband’s grandmother’s attic. And he talks about their paranormal investigation at the infamous Villisca Ax Murder House, location of the brutal murder of a family. Fox joins in with some recent ghost encounters while visiting Gettysburg with his wife this weekend and Pennhurst Asylum. Andrew is a delightful and spooky guest, and Fox adores speaking to him. Cheer Andrew on Food Network’s Halloween Baking Championship! They finish the show with a techno song about Halloween from Baltimore’s Red This Ever: I Like Halloween. So do we! We’re counting down to Halloween 2018.

HAVE MERCY ON OUR SOULS
New episode of What Are You Afraid Of? Horror & Paranormal Show. The start of our Countdown to Halloween 2018!
Have Mercy On Our Souls. Being sick is a horror story. On episode 95, horror author T. Fox Dunham talks about his medical horror thriller, Mercy, published by Blood Bound Books. Mercy is the written metaphor of the pain treatment and violation he suffered while battling a rare lymphoma when he was 18. Horror host Phil Thomas asks Fox several new questions to provide insight into the book. FANGORIA gives MERCY 3.5 out 4 Skulls - "Dunham has channeled his many brushes with the other side into the exquisitely rendered, lyrical supernatural hospital thriller MERCY." English folksinger David Walton reads another ghost story from Exeter, UK. In the shops built over an old prison below the streets, spirits haunt the shopkeepers and phantom faces appear, crying out with laughter in Clumsy Ghosts of Exeter. He also reads an excerpt from T. Fox Dunham’s novel, Mercy. And new clown news! Take it while you can get it. Those creepy clowns are hibernating.
