Listen to Episode 10: Night Stories
On #podcast 10, we focus on the art of the dark narrative, whether in story or film. We still talk about some #paranormal topics, too. Our briefer format continues, and you’ll be seeing new episodes at least three times a month.
Phil Thomas & T. Fox Dunham open the show with a short true #ghost story sent in by filmmaker, writer and professional performing freak, Kino McFarland, called Wrong Number. Kino and her husband captured a haunting EVP (Electronic Voice Phenomenon) that we play with this story.

Phil & Fox discuss Indie writing and filmmaking, writing for streaming services and working with production companies. Fox shares his experience partnering with Throughline Films to have his first novel, The Street Martyr, turned into a major motion picture. We offer advice to new authors fighting to reach this penultimate professional goal. We also discuss Ouija boards. They’re fun if you don’t mind risking demonic oppression.
Our second piece is from bizarro & horror author MP Johnson—a piece of dark fiction given to us from Perpetual Motion Machine Publishing. MP Johnson shows us real monsters without empathy in his story, The Man with an Ax in the Backseat of Your Car Has Feelings Too, narrated by our British folk-singer, David Walton, with his usual dark and compelling tones. Check out their website guidelines to have a piece of flash fiction featured on the podcast.
You don’t know he’s there, curled up behind you, clutching an ax in his sweaty hands as you drive off to the gym for your last workout ever.
