11: Horror




This week’s episode is all about horror. We explore the world of horror films and the music that goes in them. We have stories about a fictional sport brought to real-life, a recreated eugenics lab in New York City and a father who is looking for the ghost of his daughter. New York Times comedy critic Jason Zinoman talks to us about the culture of horror while Glynn Washington of SNAP Judgement shows us how best to tell a ghost story. The band Radio Jarocho joins us live with some music inspired by Mexican and Afro-Caribbean beats.
