Welcome to the Ink Heist podcast, which is devoted to dark genre fiction, featuring hosts Rich Duncan, 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’re excited to welcome Mary SanGiovanni and Matt Wildasin to the show to talk horror, writing and everything in between! Mary SanGiovanni and Matt Wildasin are two amazing authors that horror fans are undoubtedly familiar with through their unique and terrifying books and also as podcasters. They are currently hosts of The Ghost Writers Podcast , along with Dave Thomas and Somer Canon, and were also members of The Horror Show with Brian Keene. The Ghost Writers Podcast is a must-listen show for anyone who is interested in horror fiction, whether as a fan or as a writer. It’s loaded with great practical advice on writing and the publishing industry that has definitely helped us more than once. Not only is it informative, but you can tell everyone is genuinely friends with one another and the show is also loaded with humor and recommendations of things to check out (both good AND bad, as you’ll find out later in this episode!). As a fan of both Mary and Matt’s writing and The Ghost Writers Podcast, it was a pleasure and an honor to be able to sit down with them and talk about their work and the horror genre in general. Rather than link to all of their individual books, I’ll list links to both of their author pages on Amazon. If you’re unsure of what your next read will be, check out their page and pick up some of their books. You won’t be disappointed!
Throughout the course of the episode, we discuss cosmic horror, podcasting, post apocalyptic fiction, THE EVERYWHERE HOUSE, DARK WORDS, bad horror movies, and so much more! We had a great time recording this episode and hanging out with Mary and Matt. We hope you guys enjoy the conversation as much as we did!
