{Scary’s Voices} Sound Bites: This weeks recommended horror podcasts.

Scary’s Voices – Sound Bites

Week Ending 23rd April 2021

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:

Final Guys

Last month I highlighted the show Monster Men, hosted by Hunter Shea and Jack Campisi, and when I saw this duo was involved in another podcast, I had to check it out. In the Final Guys, Hunter and Jack team up with Tim Meyer and Jason Brant to discuss horror news, movies, books, games, and pickles.

Informative and hilarious, the Final Guys is a fun way to keep your finger on the pulse of what’s new in horror, while also taking a stroll or two down nostalgia lane. In each episode the four hosts talk about what they’ve read, watched, and played through the previous week, and then together they review a horror flick. On occasion, these guys also bring on guests, such as author Chad Lutzke and screenwriter Robert Benjamin.

Another cool aspect of the show is that it is live-streamed every Tuesday at 8 PM (EST) on YouTube, allowing you to interact with the hosts during the show. Runtimes range from 1.5 to 2 hours. If you want to listen on your own time, all episodes are available on most podcast platforms with links to everything on the Final Guys website. www.finalguys.com

Shiver-Worthy Runner-Up:

Sent to Destroy Radio

There’s a huge overlap between fans of horror and metal music, and if you love to rock out with the sign of the horns then Sent to Destroy Radio is a show for you! Personally, that music isn’t my scene, but I still really enjoyed this podcast.

Host Chris Bonifay tackles subjects such as criminal cases which blamed horror movies and metal music for heinous crimes, dissects horror subgenres, and even samples horror and metal products like beer and hot sauces. He’s also interviewed some fantastic guests such as iconic actors Lin Shaye and Michael Berryman, Ruth Waytz from the Church of Satan, and musicians from groups such as Walls of Jericho, Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, and Prong. The tagline sums it up best – “Fueled by horror, powered by metal, approved by Satan.”

Entertaining and eclectic, Sent to Destroy Radio is a terrific show to add to your playlist. Episodes typically run from 1.5 to 2 hours and are available on most podcast platforms. All links can be found on the show’s website.


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.
