{Scary’s Voices} Sound Bites for May 6th 2022.

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.

My Scream of the Week goes to:

Brother Ghoulish’s Tomb

As you can probably guess, I sort through a lot of podcasts looking for new recommendations and one of the things I notice first is the range of episodes in any show. When I came across Brother Ghoulish’s Tomb I saw titles like “Werehyenas and Other African Lore,” “Tim Burton and Black Goths,” and “Ancient Egyptian Vampires.” I couldn’t possibly skip those titles, and I’m so glad I didn’t!

Hosted by the delightful Brother Ghoulish (aka Ryan W. Kinney), Brother Ghoulish’s Tomb covers horror in every avenue from films to tv, books to folklore. Each episode begins with a big pot of horror hot topic tea to catch you up on the latest gossip and trends in the horror community, then Ryan digs into the main theme or topic.

Episodes have been dedicated to examining movies such as The Ring, There’s Someone Inside of Your House, and Dawn of the Dead, as well as an appreciation episode for scream queen Jada Pinkett-Smith. Brother Ghoulish’s Tomb also occasionally features guests on the show, including other podcasters and authors. He runs a terrific solo show, but there’s an extra element of enjoyment when he pulls other horror fans into the conversation. Besides the episodes I’ve listed above, I highly recommend catching Ryan’s interview with Eve Harms to discuss her fabulous body horror novella Transmuted.

And, if you’re a fan of the Boulet Brothers’ Dragula, then you’ll want to check out Ryan’s other podcast Brother Ghoulish’s Dragula Breakdown.

Entertaining, informative, and fun, Brother Ghoulish’s Tomb is a great show to add to your podcast rotation. New episodes are released every week and run about an hour long. Links to podcast episodes, including the Dragula Breakdown, plus blog posts can be found on the Brother Ghoulish website www.brotherghoulish.com

Encore Recommendation:

Such a Nightmare: Conversations About Horror

Last year, I was overjoyed at getting to know the hosts of Such a Nightmare: Conversations About Horror and even ran a special spotlight and interview on the podcast right here on Kendall Reviews. If you missed it, go check it out, and be sure to give them a listen Scary’s Voices: Such A Nightmare Spotlight

The podcast’s hosts Katherine Troyer and Anthony Tresca do a fabulous job of taking an academic look at horror and if you’ve ever wondered what makes horror work as a genre, this is absolutely the show for you. But now there’s even more reason to follow this show!

At the moment Such a Nightmare is gearing up for their first-ever Monster MAYhem Tournament, a place where horror fans can come together to see which horror characters will win in head-to-head battles. Follow the instructions on their website for a chance to win prizes or just play along for fun. I’ve submitted my picks and can’t wait to see who takes the crown! The battles begin on May 9, and you can follow along on Twitter or on their website: www.suchanightmare.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.
