Show Notes

It's Jack of All Graves! A podcast where two very different folks from two different countries bond over our shared love of all things spooky, murdery, bloody, ghosty, and in any way horrific! In our first episode, get to know who we are, how we fell in love with the macabre, and what horror things get us all hot & bothered. 

Highlights: 

  • Mark alienates himself from his South African colleagues by telling them he saw a notorious demon
  • Corrigan's older brothers abandon in her in a cemetery... repeatedly
  • We question what the horror gateway drugs are for kids these days
  • Corrigan explains American evangelicalism and the Satanic panic to Mark
  • We discuss the power of belief (and lack thereof) 
  • We close out by finding Mark absolutely buried the lede on that tokoloshe story

Ep. 43 : Horror is the fear vaccine
