Hello, friends. I hope you're keeping yourselves well and hydrated and hopeful and focused on something in the world that brings a little delight. Here's what's been going on in my world over the past month.
Over at my website, I posted some link/media round-ups:
If you're into photos, I'm posting regular Lake Michigan shots, and a few other things, at my Photos page.
Over at my podcast, Quiet Little Horrors:
- Last month's full-length episode on our folklore horror theme is our discussion about one of my favorite horror films from last year, The Medium. Come for the demon possession, stay for the intricate depiction of interfamilial relationships.
- This month we're talking about fairy tale horror. We started out with a mini episode about the classic of the subgenre, the Angela Carter-penned Company of Wolves.
- And this month's full-length episode tackles 2020's Gretel & Hansel and gets deep into considering why horror is the perfect medium for girls' coming-of-age stories.
You can get links to the podcast at most of the podcast hot spots at the website or stream them directly there.
