It’s the dawning of a new era, a new way for fandom to embrace their favorite properties. And now Horror News Radio will help shine the light on what it all means: Thomas Mariani joins Doc Rotten to bring the Horror News Radio Super Specials with special guest hosts. This week they are joined by award winning writer/director Christopher G. Moore and fan-turned-podcaster Joey Fittos.
