FANGORIA Podcast Network: “THE PUMPKIN PIE SHOW” Bares Its Teeth With “Overbite”!


Although the live iteration of THE PUMPKIN PIE SHOW is dormant for the time being, the podcast lives on, bringing bite-sized screams to those brave enough to venture into our audio nightmares. With three episodes of macabre madness from the minds and mouths of writer/performers Clay McLeod Chapman & Hanna Cheek already available, the FANGORIA Podcast Network’s second original series brings a brand new tale of terror just in time for Halloween. And lest we bite our tongue on this particular scary story, the talented Ms. Cheek once again steals the spotlight in this week’s episode, “Overbite.”

For those unfamiliar, here’s the official synopsis for THE PUMPKIN PIE SHOW podcast…

Celebrating its second decade of performances, THE PUMPKIN PIE SHOW is a literary fist in the face. Part storytelling session, part boxing match, part shamanistic ritual, THE PUMPKIN PIE SHOW has established itself as an all-points artistic hodgepodge of theatre and literature.  We pick and choose the essentials of both mediums, channeling their rocking properties in order to create a more intimate relationship between performer and audience. Our goal is to strip away the elements that we find extraneous to the tale being told, conjuring up an atmosphere of “creating something out of nothing,” as well as focusing on that ethereal connective tissue between the one telling the story and our audience. Packed with enough emotional intensity to feel like a rock concert rather than just spinning a yarn, THE PUMPKIN PIE SHOW is pure bedtime stories for adults.

“Overbite” was written by Clay McLeod Chapman and performed by Hanna Cheek. “Overbite” follows the story of Iron Jaw, a lovely young trapeze artist who can hang from her harness for hours by nothing but her teeth… But don’t get too close. She may bite. To hear the macabre monologue, you can download the episode FOR FREE via Libsyn, Stitcher and iTunes, and Android users can enter the RSS Feed into your third party podcast listening application such as BeyondPod. You can also grab the mp3 file directly by opening the file below on a new tab/window, right clicking the page and selecting “Save as…”
