Co-hosted by ‘King’s Town’ Ted and Anthony D.P. Mann (with frequent assists from ‘Sometimes’ Doug), the HORROR ETC. podcast is one of the most impressive exports to come out of Canada since Bob and Doug MacKenzie. And with an impressive back-catalogue of over 300 (yes, 300!) episodes under their belt, they show no sign of slowing down.
One reason for the show’s success is that it elevates the horror discourse (yep, they sho’ nuff do talk purty!), even as your hosts drags you kicking and screaming onto some of the scariest rides in their dark carnival. Most episodes centre around a theme, with engaging and intelligent discussions of subjects ranging from giallo to grindhouse to Bergman to Batman.
As devoted horror fans, the co-hosts have a combined knowledge of the genre that is nearly encyclopedic. Combine that with all the big words and the wide range of topics, and it’s guaranteed that each episode will leave your telencephalon grinning happily, staring dreamily at the ceiling, and puffing a menthol afterwards.
