Eerie Episodes and Cinematic Chills: A Double Dose of October Delights from Award-Nominated Podcast
— J. Alexander Greenwood
KANSAS CITY, MO, UNITED STATES, October 20, 2023 /EINPresswire.com/ — October has traditionally been a month for ghosts and ghouls, but the Mysterious Goings On podcast is elevating it to an ethereal new realm. This spooky season, get ready for two mini-series: “Silver Screams” and “Alex’s Apparitions.”
Named an Apple Podcasts “New & Noteworthy” show in 2016, Mysterious Goings On was also a 2019 People’s Choice Podcast Awards nominee. In 2022, it was a Top 5 Literature Podcast in the CrowdUltra Awards and a Top Lit Podcast by Matchmaker.Fm. The weekly show covers all kinds of genre fiction and meets the people who write it. It also features interviews and explorations about creativity in all professions and walks of life.
“Never miss an apparition; subscribe now,” Greenwood advises. “But be warned: like the most memorable hauntings, these episodes are ephemeral. They’ll vanish from our feed by the end of All Saints Day. Seize the moment and tune in before they fade away—if you dare.”
For “Silver Screams,” Mysterious Goings On host and producer J. Alexander “Alex” Greenwood collaborates with film critic and screenwriter Lucas Hardwick for five bonus episodes. Together, they delve into both iconic Halloween films and what they view as under-the-radar cinematic gems.
Episodes feature the following films:
– Episode One: “Phantasm”
– Episode Two: “The Black Cat”
– Episode Three: “Hellraiser 2: Hellbound”
– Episode Four: A watchalong episode of “John Carpenter’s The Thing” with “live” commentary from Hardwick and Greenwood.
– Episode Five: Top Ten Horror Film picks from Hardwick and Greenwood.
The show also offers bite-sized treasures with “Alex’s Apparitions.” These special Halloween-inspired shorts detailing real-life haunted happenings guide listeners from the haunting harmonies of a spectral string section in a graveyard to a few sunlit, yet eerie legends of Key West, Florida.
– The Filmstrip That Started It All
– Meet Robert the Doll… If You Dare
– Love Beyond the Grave: The Bizarre Tale of Georg Carl Tänzler
Mysterious Goings On is available on Spotify, Apple, and most other podcast aggregators, or at MGOPod.com.
