Our fear-oes begin their extra spooky Halloween series on Ray Bradbury’s Something Wicked This Way Comes. Brandon Chast-fiend offers some much needed context on Bradbury’s life (7:52), even including a die-scription of the “slush” pile from which short stories were selected by magazines like the New Gore-ker in those days (17:45). Our heroes admit to mixed feeling about Scare-en-heit 451 (20:00), discuss whether Bradbury was really a die-ence fiction writer (24:15). Chast-fiend gives us a run-down on said genre (33:15). Nathan gives us a run-down on the pulps and horror at the time. (40:45). Meanwhile Jake Mentzkiller keeps threatening to lie down on the floor and go to sleep if a certain other fear-o won’t stop it with the Halloween puns.
