Episode 6 Horror & Halloween!


By Shawn Robare

Wow, it’s been awhile since my last actual podcast, so here we go.  First off, sorry folks but this is a big one.  I struggle with how to go about gathering my thoughts for these, and I go back and forth between working from a script and ad libbing my way through these.  This one was complete ad lib, so it’s all over the place and it took me awhile to get to the end.  So sorry about that.  The file is roughly 49 megs, so there’s that.

This one is all about horror and Halloween memories per an idea from a piece of listener mail from Anjalee.  She suggested a horror podcast and that’s what I delivered.  I wax nostalgic on horror themed children’s books, halloween record albums, haunted houses, Disney World, horror video covers, and a few movies too (sort of.)  There’s also some cartoon DVD release news (culled from the ever awesome tvondvd.com) and that’s about it.

The one thing I didn’t get to was a story about my scariest Halloween.  My mother had made me a super-man outfit and I went out with my dad trick or treating like normal.  Well, While we were gone, my mother dressed up like a witch, but she went a little wild (she looks a whole heck of a lot like the witches in the above picture considering that was her inspiration) and when we got back to the house she answered the door and scared the living bejebus out of me and five or so other kids.  I didn’t believe it was her and I think I may have even wet my super suit.  But anyway…

So sit back, relax and listen to my dumb voice.

    Yep – had one of those horror albums. My dad never let me drag him around on a leash on halloween though. You had some good folks.
