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 have a very special episode as we wrap up the first season of the Ink Heist podcast. Shane and I originally planned to take a few weeks off around this time before launching Season 2, but we love doing these so much we kept scheduling right up until the end of the year. So fear not, there won’t be any breaks for the podcast as we start Season 2 with John Foster and Linda Jones on January 7th! For our final episode, we were lucky to have one of our first guests and friend of the podcast Laurel Hightower join us as a special guest host. We had a blast talking with Laurel on Episode 3 and we were excited to be able to have her on the show again to just hang out. We look back on previous episodes of the podcast, some of the writing advice we took from the show, talk about a slew of our favorite reads from 2019, and some of the books we’re looking forward to in the upcoming year. We cover a ton of topics and books, so if you have any gift cards burning a hole in your pocket, this is the episode for you! We all had a blast hanging out and by the end of the show, we descended into gut-busting laughter.
As we close out 2019, we want to take this time to thank everyone for supporting Ink Heist. The kind words of support have been humbling and hearing people say they’ve discovered books through Ink Heist is the greatest compliment we could ask for. A big thank you to all of our readers, listeners and authors who help make Ink Heist possible. You inspire Shane and I more than we can put into words. Here’s to a great New Year and we have some big things planned for you guys in 2020! Check out our “Year End” show now right here on Ink Heist or on your favorite streaming service.
