BOO! The Nice Jewish Fangirls are joined by horror screenwriter and scary-stuff aficionado Avishai Weinberger to explore the whys and hows and what-fors of horror storytelling. Why do frights and freak-outs appeal to us (well, some of us!)? What's the difference between horror and tragedy? And how should newbies and scardy-cats explore the genre -- and what can we gain from facing our fears?
This week's current obsessions include The Return of the Thief by Megan Whalen Turner, Wentworth, Emily in Paris, and The Boys!
