Hi, Everybody.  I'm S.A. Bradley, and I’m a life-long movie lover, but my heart belongs to horror. This podcast combines horror history, personal observations, common themes, and cultural trends to tell a story with each episode. Here we talk about all things horror. The door swings wide here, and all types of horror are welcome. Each episode covers some aspect of horror with lots of viewing or reading suggestions for you to check out. 

We're not only going to deal with horror movies, books, and comics, but also how horror relates to our lives, why we like it, and the things that make it one of the most diverse and beautiful story-telling styles that we have.  Horror may be one of the oldest story telling styles because it is tailor-made for allegory and metaphor.  It allows us to talk about uncomfortable subjects that we'd never sit to watch in a straight drama.  It allows for a visceral exploration of what makes us human.  It gives us a safe place to confront our own monsters that can't be ignored.  

Horror is universal.  We are all scared of the same things, no matter what continent or culture we come from.  And yet what's great about horror is that if you just want it to be a fun thrill ride, it can just be that.  Yet if you want to find a little more substance to chew on, the good ones have it.  I want to celebrate the movies and books and stories that dare to give that commentary, and are good enough to not forget that they are a horror story first. 

Some shows will be story-driven on a given theme.  Some will be discussions about a certain style or artist, some will be how movies reflected cultural events of their time.  I will travel to conventions and interview people who create horror.  And I'll have round-table discussions about horror with listeners because I want an answer to this question: What was your first kiss?  What was the defining moment that made you a life-long fan of horror?  I want to have a conversation with the listeners.
