Welcome to the Ink Heist podcast, which is devoted to dark genre fiction, featuring hosts Rich Duncan and Shane Douglas Keene and a whole bevy of authors and other interesting guests for your listening and enlightening pleasure. We are a very irreverent, often linguistically explicit broadcast so we highly recommend you use discretion when listening around easily influenced young ones or anyone who is easily offended. We would like to thank the band Secret Smoker for allowing us to use their song “Crushed by Air” to kick-off and finish the podcast.
This week, we don’t have a guest joining us. Instead, we decided to record a solo episode where we interview each other and generally just rave about the books, films and music that have been moving us lately. We thought it would be a lot of fun and give us an opportunity to let our readers get to know us better. I think we accomplished both of those goals as we both laughed so hard we were crying and couldn’t breathe. Join us as we talk about why we love the horror genre and what the community means to us, our writing, books we feel need more love, why crime and horror work so well together and some upcoming podcast guests. We also talk about our massive collaborative playlist we made on Spotify to sort of replace Sunday Slices, which you can listen to here. This episode features a variety of genres and spans multiple decades and we think it’s perfect for long drives, discovering new music, or just hanging out. We had a blast recording this and hope everyone enjoys the show this week. Check it out now right here or on your favorite streaming service.
