Hellbent For Horror


May 20, 2016

This is a companion piece to Episode 6, which was about the creation and history of Shock Theater and Horror Hosts.

When you’re creating podcasts like this, you have great ideas that just don’t make the final cut.

Sometimes, though, there’s just more story to tell.

Join me as I dig a little deeper into the world of Modern Horror Hosts.

And…

I make a confession about my own childhood Horror Host, “Uncle Ted.”

This “Addendum of Doom” is called, “Close Encounters of the Horror Host Kind!”

Enter The Addendum of Doom!
