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’re excited to welcome Michael David Wilson and Bob Pastorella to discuss their latest novel, They’re Watching, which is out now via This is Horror. Chances are if you’re a fan of horror fiction, you’re already well aware of both Michael and Bob as they host the podcast This Is Horror, which has run for 350 episodes and features interviews with some of the biggest names in the genre. It’s a great podcast and one of the biggest influences on our show and if you aren’t already a listener, head over and dive into some of their previous episodes. They also are accomplished writers, with Michael having recently released The Girl in the Video and Bob having released Mojo Rising via Perpetual Motion Machine Publishing. Throughout the course of the episode, we talked about They’re Watching, dealing with negative reviews, the collaborative process, bourbon, Bob and Shane’s Splatterpunk series, Knobrot and so much more. We had a a lot of fun recording this episode and we hope you guys enjoy it as much as we did.
