FANGORIA Podcast Network: “THE PUMPKIN PIE SHOW” is here! Episode 1 Now Available!


Last month, FANGORIA announced the addition of Clay McLeod Chapman’s esteemed and acclaimed stage show THE PUMPKIN PIE SHOW to our Podcast Network, joining the likes of Bailey Jay’s BLOOD LUST, MONSTER PARTY, WE’LL SEE YOU IN HELL, THE HORROR SHOW and THE RANTS MACABRE. Now, FANGORIA’s second original podcast is here, as THE PUMPKIN PIE SHOW masterminds Clay McLeod Chapman and Hanna Cheek bring one of Clay’s most eerie tales to life with our very first episode, “B-Side”!

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.

“B-side” was written by Clay McLeod Chapman and performed by Chapman and Hanna Cheek. The episode follows, “a rare records collector who discovers a haunted piece of vinyl.” To hear the chilling tale, you can download the episode FOR FREE via Libsyn, Stitcher and iTunes or you 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…”
