Horror writers, beer, and moustache wax, what more can you want! I got the pleasure of hanging out with these two talented and charming horror pros at Camp Necon this year. We delve into their books and the abyss.
Talking with indie writer Ben DeVos. It was chill. He likes to listen to rap & smoke weed while he writes. We talk writing, alt lit controversies, Taylor Swift/Kanye West rap battles, our mutual love for Sam Pink and much more! Ben is the author of Lord of the Game & lives in Philadelphia.
Troma director, Salem Kapsaski, came on to talk about his most recent film, Spidarlings, which is a punk horror musical full of drama, Drag Queens, deadly spiders, & lesbian romance. It has to be seen to be believed. It is surreal, beautiful, and romantically grotesque. Chill with us as we talk movies, true crime, and life in his hometown of Manchester, England.
Talking 70's porn, horror, sex, violence, publishing, rock n roll, & living in Canada, at Camp Necon with ChiZine's Brett Savory. This convo is fun, lude, & full of important info about FB reactions & what book Cons are cool to go to.
It was the last night after much 'festivity' at Necon & we recorded it outside until the rain came, at which point we made our way dow the hallway, waking up grumpy ppl. This is real, raw, & uncut. We talked about all my favorite subjects including witchcraft, Kenneth Anger, Marilyn Manson & Marilyn Monroe. So much fun. Enjoy!
B. Diehl is obsessed with The Room, Brian Alan Ellis with Troll 2, and Ryan Boyd is as obsessed with Ed Wood. So we got together and argued about which of these films is truly the worst! How do new movies stack up to the King of Bad Movies. Find out!
Scott McMclanahan reminices about his youthful exploits, the middle school band he got kicked out of, pop culture, panda head poet wars, furries & The Sarah Book. He gives me terrible podcasting tips about how to alienate my audience more. We also talk about how Noah Cicero is so weird & cool & how being obsessed with social media is overrated. Join us for this rambly & hilarious detour from reality where Scott drops his pearls of Southern wisdom. Scott McClanahan is the author of Hill William, Crapalachia, The Sarah Book & other stories. He lives in West Virginia.
Due to recent events in the literary community I recorded an episode with Jessica McHugh, who writes speculative, horror, and YA fiction, about what it is like to be a female who writes. We talk about the difficulties and the harassment we face on a regular basis simply for being female. We exchange funny and scary stories & end up having a rollicking good time laughing about all the fuckbois. Join us!
Sarah Gerard talks about her new collection of personal essays about her childhood & the state that she grew up in. We talk birds, writing, religion, dreams, water, astrology, music, art & addiction. Join us for this amazing moment with the author of the exciting & critically acclaimed Sunshine State.
Joanna C. Valente & Michael J. Seidlinger sat on a rooftop in Bed Stuy & talked about their writing, Civil Coping Mechanisms, witchy empowerment, sexism, living in NYC, travelling, AWP, and so much rambling & random questions.
