SKEERT 05 - Sarah Read

October 31, 2020

Sarah Read’s fiction is brutal, strange, and beguiling, so it’s a pleasure to have her on the season finale of SKEERT. And she exceeded already high expectations, affably breaking down the inspirations and intentions behind some stories from her disturbingly good collection, Out of Water. Add in some gorgeous ambient music from sonic wizard Daniel Farris, and this is the Halloween podcast that you need.

SKEERT 04 - The Haunting of Bly Manor with Bekah and Kelly

A couple weeks ago we discussed Henry James's The Turn of the Screw and its 1961 film adaptation, The Innocents, with friends/podcasters Bekah Eaton and Kelly Fuller. Now the same gang is back to follow up with our thoughts on another adaptation of this material, Netflix's brand new horror/drama mini-series The Haunting of Bly Manor.

Protectors of Gundahar: Looking Down Our Nose with Marlicia Renji-Pirdoux

Protectors of Gundahar: Looking Down Our Nose with Marlicia Renji-Pirdoux

October 20, 2020

Last week on the show, Mtn_Dew69 and Gavin played excerpts of an NPR program called Looking Down Our Nose, hosted by Pledge Krackelbar and featuring an interview with indie director Marlicia Renji-Pirdoux. Mtn and Gavin's commentary was bizarrely if predictably emotional. They have yet to send us another completed podcast. So, while it might be considered piracy to do so, we've decided to post the full episode of Looking Down Our Nose on our feed, as this week's installment. You know, for context.

SKEERT 03 - Polly Schattel

October 15, 2020

In a particularly satisfying episode, filmmaker and author Polly Schattel joins the show to talk about her debut novel, The Occultists, a richly-detailed, propulsive, and sometime gruesome period piece/ adventure story available now from JournalStone Publishing. It's a wide-ranging conversation that includes Polly's early years in rural Alabama, the research that went into her book, and a lot more. Folks who have read The Occultists should stick around till the end for a spoiler-y discussion of a few key events and characters.

SKEERT 02 - The Turn of the Screw with Bekah and Kelly

October 9, 2020

Henry James's influential 1898 horror story The Turn of the Screw has been adapted multiple times, most famously into the 1961 film The Innocents, which still has the power to make your skin crawl. Devoted readers Bekah Eaton and Kelly Fuller stop by for this meeting of the SKEERT Book Club to discuss the novella and the movie, just as Netflix debuts a new mini-series version of the story. It's Bly Manor's world, we're just living in it.

Protectors of Gundahar: Episode Zero

Protectors of Gundahar: Episode Zero

October 6, 2020

FYIz is proud to announce PROTECTORS OF GUNDAHAR, a new podcast hosted by obsessed fans of a deeply obscure series of fantasy books, G. Ellison R. R. Sadler's MOONS OF GUNDAHAR series. It's about as niche as they come but, as struggling podcast impresarios, we're willing to try anything. In this episode, executive producers John Walker and Chris Garrison set the stage for show hosts Mtn_Dew69 and his friend Gavin to explain why you'd tune in for such trivial nonsense. (Hint: It might be the fun kind of train wreck!)

Playing Records with John: The Music of Greg Lisher and Camper Van Beethoven

July 3, 2020

John is joined by filmmaker and author Polly Schattel as they discuss the subtle and ear-catching artistry of Greg Lisher—guitarist for Camper Van Beethoven and Monks of Doom—first amongst themselves and then with the man himself! It's the opposite of one of those "never meet your heroes" situations; Greg opens up about the early days of CVB, his influences, and his brand-new instrumental solo record, Songs from the Imperial Garden.
