Special guest Nadia Bulkin steps into the Abyss to discuss Kelly Link's short story, "The Specialist's Hat," and the debt horror writers owe to urban legends and superstition. Nadia also makes a special pledge to our readers and listeners! Before we dive into our spoiler-filled discussion, though, Scott Kemper, Matt Brandenburg, and Michael Patrick Hicks discuss the Boom! Studios comic book Something Is Killing The Children, the season finale of Creepshow Season One, Robert Eggers's The Lighthouse, starring Willem Dafoe and Robert Pattinson, Muzzleland Press's anthology, Behold the Undead of Dracula: Lurid Tales of Cinematic Gothic Horror, and Daniel Kraus's Blood Sugar.
