Show Notes

Alright, onto episode 42. We were so inspired listening to Daniel Kraus talk about how writing without the intention to publish helped him cultivate joy in his craft, his trademark style of using gorgeous language to describe the grotesque, his collaborations with Guillermo Del Toro, and what it was like to collaborate posthumously with filmmaker George A. Romero.

We are thrilled to bring you our fourth Tropisode! Today’s episode is all about werewolves. As you know, with these episodes we invite a guest with some expertise on the trope we’re exploring. Today, we’re happy to welcome Stephen Graham Jones to the show.

We’ve brought Stephen onto the show today because of his personal interest in werewolf stories—so much so that he’s even written his own werewolf novel, Mongrels. We really think you'll enjoy hearing Stephen's personal interest and passion about this fascinating horror tradition. Make sure you stay tuned for the pure hilarity at the end. Stephen unexpectedly divulges a personal experience from his youth that had us—shall we say—howling.

Please note that starting about the 36 minute mark until the 40 minute mark, Stephen's dogs start barking. I could have cut this out, but we had a good conversation going & I didn't want you guys to miss out on any of that good info. If it really bothers you, just fast forward about 4 minutes and it stops. :D
