{Scary’s Voices} Sound Bites for February 11th 2022.

Scary’s Voices: Sound Bites for February 11th.

Welcome back to Sound Bites where I highlight the best horror podcasts I’ve heard through the week. If you’re looking for content to haunt your earbuds, these podcasts are just what you need.

Scream Of The Week

Doom Generation

Besides running an awesome true crime podcast, the good folks behind Homicide Worldwide Podcast regularly recommend other top-notch shows. Recently they gave a shout out to Doom Generation, so I added a couple of episodes to my playlist, and I’m so glad I did!

This podcast has everything I love – humorous reviews of movies, 80s and 90s nostalgia, and talks about pop culture that shaped a generation, for better and for worse. The two fabulous hosts, Nicole and Tessa, have a fantastic dynamic that immediately pulls the listener into their discussions and makes you feel part of the conversation.

Scrolling though past episodes of Doom Generation you’ll find horror movies such as Fright Night (1985), The Lost Boys, and Gremlins, but you’ll also find titles like Clueless, Batman Returns, and Cry-Baby. I couldn’t resist revisiting a couple of my childhood favourites as Nicole and Tessa relived the horror of the Wheelers in “Return to Oz (1985): Don’t you know that eggs are poison?” and then took a trip to the Goondocks for “The Goonies (1985): It’s our time down here!” If you want to remember the movie moments that shaped you and enjoy a lot of laughs along the way, Doom Generation needs to be in your podcast playlist rotation.

Episodes are typically around an hour in length and new episodes drop every Saturday. Find Doom Generation on most podcast platforms or listen directly on their website www.doomgenerationpod.com

Shiver-Worthy Runner Up


For the bookish fiends among you, Ghoulish should be on your radar. In this show, host Max Booth III (horror author and co-founder of the indie publisher Perpetual Motion Machine Publishing (PMMP) and its imprint Ghoulish Books) interviews all sorts of people who create scary things.

This week I caught up on a few recent episodes, including Episode 127 which takes a look at making fiction an immersive experience with Kathe Koja, a behind the scenes look at horror journalism with Josh Millican in Episode 128, and a couple others featuring authors included in PMMP’s latest anthology Lost Contact. Past episodes you’ll also want to check out include wonderful discussions with Hailey Piper, Tim Waggoner, and even Dan Rebert, a practical effects artist.

While there’s no doubt Max includes a lot of fun and laughs for both his guests and listeners, Ghoulish balances entertainment with information that you can apply to your own creative works.

Generally, episodes are about an hour long, and are available on most podcast platforms, as well as on YouTube with closed captions. Or listen directly on the Ghoulish website www.ghoulishpod.com

That’s a wrap for this week’s Sound Bites!

As always, thanks so much to the awesome podcast listeners and creators who have been sending me terrific recommendations. Keep them coming via the comments section below, or direct messaging on Twitter or Instagram (links below). I can’t promise I’ll enjoy every podcast you throw my way, but I’ll give everyone a fair shot.

Remember, I’m all about scary things and spooky podcasts are what I’m after. Content focused on reviewing horror movies and horror books, true paranormal encounters, facts about cryptids, true crimes, and original scary stories are exactly what I want to hear.

Can’t wait to listen to all the dark podcasts you fine fiends suggest, and I hope you’ll join me next Friday for more Sound Bites.
