Welcome to the Ink Heist podcast, which is devoted to dark genre fiction, featuring hosts Rich Duncan, Shane Douglas Keene, Laurel Hightower 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 are excited to bring you a very special episode of the Ink Heist podcast. For the first time in Ink Heist history, we had TWO guests join us for the show. This week we got to chat with accomplished actor and audiobook narrator Linda Jones and author John C. Foster, whose work blends elements of horror and crime noir to create devastating dark fiction. We always have fun on the show, but this was a great conversation that was not only informative but full of laughter and good times. If we ever get the chance to record an episode live, Linda and John are at the top of the list. It was a lot of fun and we hope you guys have just as much fun listening.
We talked to them about crime, John’s new Ink Heist column “Crime Wave”, what goes into creating audiobooks, the benefits of having trusted people be your sounding board, cooking and a whole lot more. Keep an eye out for John’s upcoming crime novel Rooster, which will be coming out soon via Grey Matter Press. Also, check out some of the books Linda Jones has narrated, she is a phenomenal talent. Horror fans may want to start with the audiobook versions of John F.D. Taff’s The Fearing or John C. Foster’s The Isle. Check out our conversation with John and Linda now right here on Ink Heist or on your favorite streaming service.
