Episode 2.54 – A Penchant for Pinecones

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 went a little off script and decided to record an impromptu solo show, which was just what the three of us needed to unwind after a stressful week. In typical Ink Heist fashion, this episode was filled with plenty of laughs and I’m pretty sure the three of us had hurt stomachs from laughing so hard. It was a wide ranging conversation that covered a ton of random topics and we think you’ll find plenty of new artists to check out and some helpful writing tips. Just a few of the things we talked about this episode was the work of Kenneth Patchen, if we think about genre when we write, recommendations outside of the Horror genre, what type of fan-fiction we’d write, and so much more. We had a blast recording this episode and it’s always fun when the three of us get together and just hang out. We hope you enjoy the episode and maybe discover some new artists.
