Festive fear to download and keep

‘Tis the season to huddle together inside, away from the harsh weather, and tell each other scary stories. Hallowe’en may own the spectacular scares, but Christmas is the time for hushed, furtive, spooky storytelling.

So good news, fear fans: Blackshaw’s Scare Slam is now available in podcast form, just in time for us all to lock our doors, plug in our headphones, shut out the everyday world and take a cautious stroll somewhere … other.

Listen, download the episode and/or subscribe to the Blackshaw Arts Hour podcast over at Podbean.

The episode includes my first attempt at live spoken word storytelling (without notes or anything!), plus Schenectady Six-Pack podcast alumni Richard Stratton (talking about a true-life series of unsettling experiences), Hel Gurney (with an extract from Red Hoods and Glass Slippers) and Duncan Gates (compèring).

If you subscribe, you’ll also get the regular Blackshaw Arts Hour once a fortnight, which usually includes me talking about a recent movie release with host Iasha Chapman.
