We are all the way live with this one, and that’s because we welcome an old friend back into the house. Susie Chang returns to the show to talk about her life, her journey and her new book Tarot Correspondences: Ancient Secrets for Everyday Readers.
Dacre Stoker and JD Barker are in the house. They are the co-authors of the recently released novel Dracul, the official Stoker-family endorsed prequel to the original Dracula story. Very cool, very excited to have them here for our annual Halloween episode.
You won’t find too many people who work in and around paranormalia like our guest this time around. His name is Joshua Cutchin, and he’s in the house to talk about his recent book, Thieves in the Night: A Brief History of Supernatural Child Abductions.
Dr. John Cussans is in the house to talk about his book Undead Uprising: Haiti, Horror and the Zombie Complex, which explores the uses of Haiti as a locus for Euro-American fears about African culture and spirituality in the Americas, and their sublimation into popular horror tropes.
Peter Bebergal has written maybe the coolest book you’ll read this year. Actually there’s no maybe about it. It’s the coolest. It’s called Strange Frequencies: The Extraordinary Story of the Technological Quest for the Supernatural. He’s in the house to chat all about it.
In a RAW bonus episode, Michael Wann is in the house to break down a more occulted layer of what the recent Kavanaugh-Ford story represents, a connection to the recent UFC fight between Conor McGregor and Khabib Nurmagomedov, as well as Kanye West, SNL, Donald Trump and pro wrestling.
