EPISODE 27: DECEMBER DARKNESS
The darkness is oppressive this time of the season, and horror authors T. Fox Dunham & Phil Thomas return with episode 27 to explore the long nights, providing you some entertainment to get you through the cold season. They bring you a mix of #ghost stories, banter, film crafting and dark fiction drawn from all over the space-time continuum.
After talking some cultural philosophy about the coming winter holidays—Halfway Out of the Dark—they open the show with another true ghost story told to them by Doctor Berrett Ravenhearst from Jim Thorpe, PA as part of their new segment, ghost stories of Jim Thorpe. Fox spent the summer collecting #paranormal experiences from the small mining town in the mountains of Pennsylvania. Crossed Connections, narrated by British folksinger David Walton is another story of the dead reaching out through the phone in a series of supernatural connections or coincidences. You decide.
Phil Thomas talks film making and crafting as he overcomes common problems facing #indie #filmmakers who do not have the resources of corporate studios yet want to produce professional movies. He’s working on the final edits of the short film, A Short Term Effect, soon to be released.
They also talk about their new line of t-shirts available through TeePublic. Phil & Fox have brought in several depraved horror artists to create new designs. They’re available here for purchase along with other items such as mugs, laptop cases, cats. Would you eat What Are You Afraid Of? cereal? The hosts discuss the possibility—better with bat’s blood, not milk.
Scottish & Canadian blues artist Wily Bo Walker returns with a new song from a collaboration with The Rattlin’ Bone Theatre Show—another dark R&B dirge called ‘Shoot Me Down.’
They close the show with another reading from the KGB Club in Greenwich Village, The Dark Ones Rise—a special recorded on location hosted by T. Fox Dunham to soon be featured through the podcast. Fox reads his potent tale of a Nazi commander hunting the last elf to cure the world of false hope, a story based on Fox’s survivor’s guilt after surviving a rare lymphoma. The Last Elf.
The show is available through all major podcast services and is on Friday nights at 9PM at PARA-X RADIO. They need your true paranormal experiences.

They come back in early December with the return of occult scholar Katie Jordan then #horror author John Foster.
