It's Christmas once more at Stay Scary and we're making the best of it, with our five-time returning Champion Guest Jonathan Woodard.  We of course revisit "Black Christmas," but also get into a little "Christmas Evil," "A Christmas Horror Story," and "Rare Exports."  Also: the genuine horrors of TikTok (but only if you're a Queen Above 18), unsolicited dick pics, and terrible jokes about eggnog.   Intro Music (minus clips): Bobby Cole/SI Publishing. Outro Music: Dark Hallway (distressed) Kevin MacLeod (incompetech.com)Licensed under Creative Commons: By Attribution 3.0License http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/3.0/ Romantic jazz by: www.bensound.comAdditional vocals by Master Wyatt van Hamme.
This episode, we delve into Jewish Horror.  There is, in fact, a slasher movie about Hanukkah.  Joining us is Alex Rich-Shea, a/k/a "The Gay Rabbi."  A...spirited...discussion about serial killer rabbis, murderous bears of the Torah, gay acceptance in the Orthodox world, and unsolicited poems about buttholes. Quite possibly the filthiest-yet-most-informative episode we've done yet!ntro Music (minus clips): Bobby Cole/SI Publishing. Outro Music: Dark Hallway (distressed) Kevin MacLeod (incompetech.com)Licensed under Creative Commons: By Attribution 3.0License http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/3.0/ Romantic jazz by: www.bensound.comAdditional vocals by Master Wyatt van Hamme.
Turkey days are here again, and we get into a fresh round of Thanksgiving-themed horror movies with returning guest Soren Campbell.  We talk "Thankskilling 3," "Pilgrim," and "Flesh and Blood."  Also: garbage comfort food, getting blocked by Scott Baio, and drinking at bad chain restaurants the night before Thanksgiving.  Save room for PIE!Intro Music (minus clips): Bobby Cole/SI Publishing. Outro Music: Dark Hallway (distressed) Kevin MacLeod (incompetech.com)Licensed under Creative Commons: By Attribution 3.0License http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/3.0/ Additional vocals by Master Wyatt van Hamme."Take Me To The Bridge" by Pariah Jones.

It's time to talk about BUGS.  Returning guest Nick Zaino joins Lisa and Yinh to discuss all things creepy-crawly: giant self-aware cockroaches, radioactive ants, billions of worms imported from Maine...and along the way we discuss real-life gross outs, play "Which Was The Better IT Spider?" before devolving into terrible jokes about maggot babies.  You'll want a six-pack of RAID for this one.Intro Music (minus clips): Bobby Cole/SI Publishing. Outro Music: Dark Hallway (distressed) Kevin MacLeod (incompetech.com)Licensed under Creative Commons: By Attribution 3.0License http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/3.0/ Additional vocals by Master Wyatt van Hamme.
We took a little break, but we are back with Season 2! We're talking teen witches - what's great, what's super problematic, and what it means to find self-empowerment in the midst of global crisis.  Superstar Returning Guest Melissa Van Hamme joins us as we whip up a cauldron full of bad wigs, the Rule of Three, mermaid vaginas, and the usual highly questionable content.  Jump on in! Intro Music (minus clips): Bobby Cole/SI Publishing. Outro Music: Dark Hallway (distressed) Kevin MacLeod (incompetech.com)Licensed under Creative Commons: By Attribution 3.0License http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/3.0/ Additional vocals by Master Wyatt van Hamme.
Lisa and Yinh talk to author Matthew Brockmeyer (Kind Nepenthe, Under Rotting Sky) about his upcoming collection of transgressive short stories, Nest Of Salt, as well as rural horror, backwoods witchcraft, living on a pot farm, and why Flannery O'Connor should be required reading, as early as possible.Intro Music (minus clips): Bobby Cole/SI Publishing. Outro Music: Dark Hallway (distressed) Kevin MacLeod (incompetech.com)Licensed under Creative Commons: By Attribution 3.0License http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/3.0/ Witch Spell II - Bats & Spiders by Humanfobia is licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial-NoDerivatives 4.0 License.Additional vocals by Master Wyatt van Hamme.
Although it'll be a good long time before most of us set foot in one, we're talking HOTELS.  From The Overlook to The Bates to the real-life horror stories at The Cecil, you're gonna want to keep your door locked and make no unnecessary jaunts down the hall to the ice machine.  Lisa and Yinh are joined once again by Jonathan Woodard (The Wrong Chaneys) for a wholesome chat about psychic imprints, voyeuristic motel owners, and Best Places To Stay If You're A Serial Killer.Intro Music (minus clips): Bobby Cole/SI Publishing. Outro Music: Dark Hallway (distressed) Kevin MacLeod (incompetech.com)Licensed under Creative Commons: By Attribution 3.0 Licensehttp://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/3.0/ Additional vocals by Master Wyatt van Hamme.
We are back with a FULL episode! And we are finally tackling the subject that a lot of people would rather we didn't: CLOWNS.  Joining us is our Very Special Guest - David Howard Thornton ("Art the Clown" in the fantastic "Terrifier" series). We grill David about the much-anticipated sequel, while also talking Pennywise, John Wayne Gacy, tulpas, court jesters, and why horror actors almost always are the exception to the rule "Never meet your idols." Intro Music (minus clips): Bobby Cole/SI Publishing. Outro Music: Dark Hallway (distressed) Kevin MacLeod (incompetech.com)Licensed under Creative Commons: By Attribution 3.0 Licensehttp://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/3.0/ Additional vocals by Master Wyatt van Hamme.
We said we might do it, and we’re gonna do it!
Will the COVID madness ever come to an end? Will Lisa buy a plague doctor mask? Will Yinh have to yank the wax off her own armpits?  In this delightful minisode, we talk botched Tudor executions, where to find toilet paper, "Killer Sofa," and the perils of self-grooming.Intro Music (minus clips): Bobby Cole/SI Publishing. Outro Music: Dark Hallway (distressed) Kevin MacLeod (incompetech.com)Licensed under Creative Commons: By Attribution 3.0 Licensehttp://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/3.0/ Additional vocals by Master Wyatt van Hamme.

It's the dark days of the Coronavirus.  SXSW has been cancelled, you can't buy hand sanitizer at CVS, and hazmat suits are the new black.  What better topic to discuss than NATURE GONE BAD?  Joining us is returning guest Nick Zaino, as we get into pandemics, rabid dogs, triffids, and a crow named Shit Turd.  Plus - a surprise appearance by local metal band Rhodium Plated.  Grab your Clorox wipes and your face masks and don't forget to wash your hands before listening!Intro Music (minus clips): Bobby Cole/SI Publishing. Outro Music: Dark Hallway (distressed) Kevin MacLeod (incompetech.com)Licensed under Creative Commons: By Attribution 3.0 Licensehttp://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/3.0/ Additional vocals by Master Wyatt van Hamme.Support us! https://www.patreon.com/stayscary
We're tackling Catholicism, which is uniquely suited to horror in ways that most non-Catholics might not grasp. Anyone who grew up with a dog-eared copy of "Lives Of The Saints" knows this.Lending a bit of credibility to our hot mess of a horror podcast is Harvard Kennedy School Senior Lecturer in Ethics and Public Policy (and nerd-of-all-trades) Christopher RobichaudLet's talk iconography, relic classes, the Cadaver Synod, and why "The Exorcist" isn't what you think it is.Intro Music (minus clips): Bobby Cole/SI Publishing. Outro Music: Dark Hallway (distressed) Kevin MacLeod (incompetech.com)Licensed under Creative Commons: By Attribution 3.0 Licensehttp://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/3.0/ Additional vocals by Master Wyatt van Hamme.
MUSIC IN HORROR.

Kids! Why are they so damn creepy? Lisa and Yinh are joined by Kevin Coombs to talk about some of the weirder kids in the horror genre.  Damien! Gage Creed!

And now, the subject many would have preferred we didn't cover.  DOLLS.  From Annabelle to Chucky to the O.G. of haunted dolls - Robert the Doll - we discuss just why this topic is so creepy to so many. Along the way we talk clutter, the evil that is mayonnaise, and Lisa waxes eloquent on having intimate relations while a possessed doll is in the room.

It's nearly Christmas, "the most wonderful time of the year," and we tackle what that one line in that song - about telling ghost stories - really means.  A dramatic reading of A.M. Burrage's "Smee," plus the legend of The Belsnickel.  Also - Krampus porn, cat vomit, and why a can of peas is a nice Yankee Swap gift. Intro Music (minus clips): Bobby Cole/SI Publishing; Royalty free music from Nicolas Gasparini; Outro Music: Dark Hallway (distressed) Kevin MacLeod (incompetech.com)Licensed under Creative Commons: By Attribution 3.0 Licensehttp://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/3.0/ Additional vocals by Master Wyatt van Hamme.
It's the holiday season, and we keep Christmas in our hearts, and some other places too sophisticated to mention.  Christmas is scary enough, so why not pile on the horror with some tasteful Yuletide gore?  Lisa and Yinh are joined by returning guest Melissa van Hamme, who regales us with some fireside tales we definitely were NOT expecting.  Kevin Harrington sits in!  Intro Music (minus clips): Bobby Cole/SI Publishing. Royalty free music from https://www.fesliyanstudios.comOutro Music: Dark Hallway (distressed) Kevin MacLeod (incompetech.com)Licensed under Creative Commons: By Attribution 3.0 Licensehttp://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/3.0/ Additional vocals by Master Wyatt van Hamme.Like us on the social medias! @stayscarypod

Let's take a stroll down Amnesia Lane, to a time when liking Dungeons & Dragons, heavy metal music, and (gasp!) horror movies could get you accused of worshipping....SATAN.  Yinh and Lisa are joined by author and musician Matt Ferrara.

We're in the double digits now, episode-wise, so why not talk about siblings?  Yinh and Lisa chew the familial gristle with return guest Jonathan Woodard (The Wrong Chaneys).  The Shining Sisters, Baby Jane and Blanche, Michael and Laurie...plus the usual tangents.

Lisa and Yinh get cozy with a cheese board at Lisa's house, and tell stories!  Yinh reads a spoooooky short story by Matt Ferrara [author of the novel An Ocean of Maybe (2016) as well as the short story collection Young Drunks in Love (2001) and the poetry collection Five Seeds Enclosed in a Capsule (2002)].  Lisa just rants about changelings and the con artist who managed to pose as a 7 year old orphan.  Along the way - we talk cheese, dusty slits, and doll heads.  Pull up a chair!Intro Music (minus clips): Bobby Cole/SI Publishing; Royalty free music from https://www.fesliyanstudios.com; The Medieval Banquet by Shane Ivers - https://www.silvermansound.comOutro Music: Dark Hallway (distressed) Kevin MacLeod (incompetech.com)Licensed under Creative Commons: By Attribution 3.0 Licensehttp://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/3.0/ Additional vocals by Master Wyatt van Hamme.
Botched surgeries! Staph infections! REAL BAD IDEAS.  Lisa and Yinh talk medical horrors both real and imaginary, taking several tangential detours along the way.  Which is why it's only fitting that this week's guest is Nick Zaino, host of "The Department of Tangents" podcast!
