Announcement: “THE HORROR SHOW”, “THE RANTS MACABRE” join the FANGORIA Podcast Network!


Last month, FANGORIA was proud to announce the launch of our Podcast Network, offering a trifecta of free, horror-centric programs including our interview show BLOOD LUST with Bailey Jay, the conversational talk show MONSTER PARTY and irreverent commentary show WE’LL SEE YOU IN HELL with Joe DeRosa & Patrick Walsh. However, alongside that announcement was the decision to hold open submissions for the next wave of FANGORIA Podcast Network programming, accepting horror podcasts from around the world for consideration. While we can’t reveal the full slate of our September programming just yet, FANGORIA is proud to announce the first wave of our Fall acquisitions: THE HORROR SHOW and THE RANTS MACABRE!

“Considering how many excellent submissions we had from passionate, awesome fright fans, it was really difficult to narrow down our selection to one show,” said FANGORIA Podcast Network curator Ken Hanley. “So, instead, FANGORIA has selected to bring two shows as for our post-launch acquisitions on the Network, and we couldn’t be more excited to bring these homegrown horror podcasts into the fold come September.”

“THE HORROR SHOW is a nice marriage between the aesthetics of MONSTER PARTY and WE’LL SEE YOU IN HELL, offering an edgier discussion on subjects throughout the horror landscape,” Hanley added. “On the flip side, THE RANTS MACABRE is a change of pace for the FANGORIA Podcast Network, with hosts Darren and Mindy taking on an articulate dissection of horror culture. Both THE HORROR SHOW and THE RANTS MACABRE offering new, independent and exciting voices in the horror community, and each show offers a side to horror fandom that is authentic to the many generations of FANGORIA readers.”
