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

Scary’s Voices – Sound Bites

Week Ending 19th February 2021

Welcome to back 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.

Since it’s Women in Horror Month, all February long I’ll be celebrating the femmes of fear by listening to shows either hosted by women or discussing horror created by women.

My Scream of the Week goes to:

Ladies of the Fright

In 2019 Ladies of the Fright took the title of Nonfiction Podcast of the Year by the This Is Horror podcast, and deservedly so. Hosts Lisa Quigley and Mackenzie Kiera provide fantastic discussions on horror books, dissect the occasional scary movie, and offer terrific conversations with people in the horror industry.

One of their latest interviews was with the always entertaining Eddie Generous, an author, podcast host of Books North, and owner of the publisher Unnerving. Episode 67 digs into writing for the love of the story versus writing in anticipation of the market, the origins of the Rewind or Die series of books, and Eddie’s various adventures growing up in Canada.

Ladies of the Fright also recently released their 3 Year Anniversary Special (Episode 68) featuring several awesome guests which you don’t want to miss!

Episodes range from 1 to 2 hours in length. Links to most listening platforms, as well as a blog with even more great interviews and some short stories, can be found on their Website www.ladiesofthefright.com

Shiver-Worthy Runners-Up:

Get Scared

Through the years I’ve been fortunate enough to have met several indie horror authors in person, including the talented Theresa Jacobs. I’ve enjoyed several of Theresa’s short stories and novels, so when I saw she had a new story available on the Get Scared podcast I had to check it out. “The Cleansing” is a wonderful, suspense-filled tale of betrayal and witches.

Host and narrator Kitsie Duncan did such a fabulous job presenting Theresa’s story that I listened to a few other episodes, which I also enjoyed. All stories featured on Get Scared are submitted by indie creators, making it a great place to find authors you may not have heard of before. Information to submit your own creepy tale, plus links to all episodes, can be found on Podbean www.getscared.podbean.com

There’s Stories Everywhere

Last week I mentioned enjoying Alledria Hurt’s story “Ujima” on the Nightlight Podcast, and in my search for more of Alledria’s work I found she has her own podcast called There’s Stories Everywhere. I listened to and enjoyed quite a few episodes of this show, where Alledria primarily narrates her fiction. Episode 3.5 “The Annie Wilkes Special,” was spinetingling good and left me questioning how much I should trust baristas.

There’s Stories Everywhere also has a few episodes highlighting works by other authors and in Episode 3.3 there’s an interview with author Nicole Givens Kurtz who spoke about world-building and her new series The Kingdom of Aves. All these great episodes can be found on Anchor www.anchor.fm/alledria/

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 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.
