Happy Halloween! No surprise we love the scary season here at Locust Radio.

To celebrate, Adam, Tish and Alex discuss some of their favorite artifacts of radical(-ish) horror: Larry Cohen’s Maniac Cop, Chuck Palahniuk’s Rant: The Oral History of Buster Casey, and clipping.’s There Existed an Addiction To Blood. We also check in with some spooky pals defending an asylum from gentrifiers and read some our favourite answers from the Irrealist Workers Survey. 

For the second half of our show, available to SUBSCRIBERS ONLY, we discuss Edgar Allen Poe’s The Masque of the Red Death and Roger Corman’s 1964 adaptation, in light of Donald Trump’s, shall we say, health problems. We also read a few more answers from the Irrealist Workers Survey and riff a bit about how the goths are right about (almost) everything. If you want to hear this portion, and haven’t subscribed yet, do so now:
