Episode 28: Haunted Hospitals

Episode 27: Off With His Head

Hello everyone and welcome to episode 27 where we discuss Execution in all its forms.

Episode 26: The Mysterious Coral Castle

Scott’s been wanting to talk about this one for a while. I have to say that I had been quite unfamiliar with Coral Castle. Listen as Scott tells the story of how a 100lb man with tuburculosis and a 4th grade education built a 10-acre walled compound and castle out of multi-ton stones all by himself.

Episode 25: Based on a True Story

Join us today as we discuss several of our favorite scary movies that happen to be based on a true story. Did you know that Child’s Play, the killer doll movie, is actually based on true events?

EDIT: DUE TO TECHNICAL DIFFICULTIES, EPISODE 25 HAD TO BE UNPUBLISHED. WE WILL RE-RECORD AND RELEASE THE EPISODE AGAIN IN THE FUTURE. SORRY YOU HAVE TO MISS WHAT WAS A DAMN GOOD SHOW, BUT INTERFERENCE MADE IT IMPOSSIBLE TO HEAR. THANKS FOR UNDERSTANDING.

Episode 24: Defending Disney Princesses from all the Haters

We’ve been treading in some really dark territory lately and I sort of needed a break. Luckily, that break came in the form of a family vacation to the Happiest Place on Earth. Spawn, Sequel, and Bride and I met lots of princesses there and had a really good time.Then I had to go and turn on the Intenet.

It appears that a growing number of humans are finding reasons to dislike our squeaky damsels in distress. They make for bad role models for girls, they say. They create unrealistic expectations, they say. You know, things of that nature. But here’s the thing: I live in a house with two small girls and so therefore have an honorary PHD in princessology. Let me impart some wisdom.

Episode 23.7: Rest in Peace Bernie Wrightson

One day back in September of last year I went over to some dude’s house to look at some comics he had for sale. We shook hands and began to chat about what we collected, favorite characters, artists, stories, et cetera. By the end of the conversation, Scott and I were fast on the way to creating the Scarydad Podcast and the crux of the discussion was how much we both loved and admired the work of Bernie Wrightson. We were both pretty devastated when we heard the news that Bernie had lost his battle with cancer. Our sincere condolences to his wife Liz and all his friends and family. In today’s episode we try to pay tribute to one of our heroes.

Item of the Week: Justice League Dark

Hey there Minions, I know I promised you an item of the week but life has been quite hectic and even I have not been shopping very much. However, I’m ready to change that.

Up for consideration today is the newest DC Animated movie Justice League Dark. You’re familiar with the Justice League but the only character you recognize is Batman, so what’s with the Dark? Justice League Dark is a separate team of magic and supernaturally-powered heroes including the magicians Zatanna and John Constantine, ghost Deadman, Etrigan the Demon, and elemental Swamp Thing, among others. They battle particularly nasty things and it’s a lot of fun to watch. 

Episode 23.5: Jack the Ripper

Greetings and salutations fine chaps! We may have mentioned him briefly in episode 23, but we wanted to give Jack his due. Therefore this short meta episode is dedicated to The Ripper.
