No trick and all treat, author emily m. danforth (Plain Bad Heroines, The Miseducation of Cameron Post) joins us this week to dyke out about all things sapphic and spooky. Why do “final girls” code as queer? Are queers more drawn to the horror genre in their youth? What scares us the most? Why is Melody so afraid of bees???? Plus, Emily gives us the scoop on her latest novel full of gothic mischief and oh-so-gay. We also talk about our costumes from U-Hauloween and learn more about how Ali’s mom tries to be an Ali. Finally, we end with a question from a listener who is frustrated by her dating life after moving to a more urban area.
Here’s a partial list of movies and books referenced in this conversation:
Watcher in the woods
The Town that Dreaded Sundown
The Haunting of Hill House
