HAPPY HALLOWEEN!!!

In this super spooky episode of the podcast we welcome back actor Rebekah Kennedy to discuss her latest role, Masha, in the film 'Two Witches'. It's definitely a super spooky film and worth your time this Halloween season.

Enjoy!

About Rebekah Kennedy

Rebekah Kennedy, born in Texas, began acting on the stage. Rebekah spent all of her time doing theatre and it wasn't until after she received her B.A. in Musical Theatre from Palm Beach Atlantic University, did she truly discover the screen.

When 2010 hit, it quickly showed it would be a promising year. Soon came an amazing opportunity when Rebekah booked a lead role as 15-year-old Hanna in the feature, "House Hunting" with Marc Singer and Art LaFleur and then went on to play 14-year-old Caroline Boutine in the feature, "Creature," starring Mehcad Brooks and Serinda Swan. Then came another wonderful opportunity when she booked a supporting role in the feature, "Season of the Witch" with Nicolas Cage.

In 2011, Rebekah made her television debut on the TNT show, "Memphis Beat." She also had a guest star role in the long running TV show "Criminal Minds" on CBS in 2016, the lead guest star Esther Labott in The Book of Esther on "Law & Order SVU" on NBC in 2018, and as the crazy drug addict Melly Wyatt in "Station 19" on ABC.

Rebekah first hit the big screen when she played the young Peasant Turk Girl in "Season of the Witch" with Nicolas Cage and Ron Perlman, which landed in theaters January 7, 2011, "Creature" which opened on September 9, 2011, and then as one of the leads in the horror film "Bastard" with After Dark Films and Fox Home Entertainment which opened October 16, 2015, and "A Dark Foe" with Graham Greene and Selma Blair.

Rebekah is also heavily involved with reaching out to the homeless and has done work with the Covenant House in Los Angeles and goBE.

About Two Witches

With its super-saturated color palette, tenebrous art design and electrifying soundtrack, Two Witches presents two truly terrifying conjoined tales of witchery, paranoia and terror that hark back to the gory thrills of classic Euro horrors such as Suspiria, Shock  and The Beyond.

Expectant young mother Sarah is convinced she has been given the evil eye from a mysterious blank-eyed old hag while she is dining with her bullish and insensitive partner Simon. When the couple go to visit his new-agey friends Dustin and Melissa, dark forces are unleashed after an ill-advised attempt at consulting a Ouija board to allay her fears. Meanwhile, tensions grow between grad school student Rachel and her new roommate Masha after a violent incident involving a man that the strange and impulsive young woman has brought home.

First-time feature director Pierre Tsigaridis, who also shot, edited and contributed to the film’s soundtrack, singles himself out as one to watch in a deft and unnerving depiction of unspeakable evil that truly delivers.

Woooo! I really really hope you enjoy long-form deep dive discussions on obscure corners of the Animorphs universe because that's what's in store for today's episode!

Seriously though, author Alison Ames is on the podcast to discuss her killer book "It Looks Like Us" which is, OMG, just the most perfect book if you grew up reading Animorph books, and is a great book as we etch ever closer to Halloween!

Alison was an absolute delight and she will absolutely be back on the podcast in the near future.

Enjoy!

aly is a charming lady with an alluring visage

About Alison Ames

Alison Ames is an author who writes horror young adult novels. her book to break a covenant was nominated for the colorado book award. her most recent book is it looks like us

About 'It Looks Like Us'

One week ago, Riley Kowalski joined a team of four other teens for an internship on climate change research in the Antarctic, sponsored by one of the world's largest tech companies. It was just the opportunity she had been searching for―an escape from the ridicule she'd received after a panic attack at school, a fresh start.

But their small team isn't alone in the remote, frozen reaches of the polar south.

In the eerie haze of evening sunlight, Riley sees something out of the corner of her eye―something that's watching them. She writes it off as the effects of her anxiety, but when their expedition leader begins to change―her limbs elongating, her body contorting―and grow violent, Riley knows the danger she feels is real. Something is stalking them, infecting them, and slowly infiltrating the team.

There is more to this research trip than any of them bargained for, and if they aren't careful, none of them will make it out alive.

It's National Coming Out Day! October 11 is considered National Coming Out Day in the United States. The day was first observed on October 11, 1988, on the anniversary of the National March on Washington for Lesbian and Gay Rights as a reminder that one of the most basic tools is the power of coming out. 

How fitting it is, that on today's episode Joe talks to Lauren Flans, co-host of the ever popular podcast entitled "Coming Out with Lauren & Nicole". This podcast provides a space for those within the LGBTQ+ community an opportunity to share their coming out story with the world!

Joe was fortunate enough to be a guest on the podcast earlier this year and on this episode Joe and Lauren get into a deep conversation about what Coming Out Day means to them, how we can evolve as a society, and get key insights into Lauren's upbringing!

Enjoy!

About Coming Out Pod

Lauren is gay! Nicole is bi! Coming Out with Lauren & Nicole is a weekly podcast where pals Lauren Flans and Nicole Pacent have queer folks from all walks of life tell the tales of how they came out to friends, family, and the world at large. Because who doesn't love a coming out story?!

Booooooo!

It's October which means we are right in the midst of Spooky Season! To kick-off October we've got author and former guest Ally Malinenko returning to the podcast to promote her latest book "This Appearing House"!

Joe and Ally get into a discussion about navigating trauma, how haunted houses have been utilized in stories over the years, and how to provide kids the resources needed to navigate this world!

It's definitely a great way to kick-off October, enjoy!

About Ally Malinenko

I live in Brooklyn which is good except when it’s not which is horrid. I’ve been writing for awhile, and have some stuff published and some stuff not.

I don’t like when people refer to pets as their children and I can’t resist a handful of Cheez-Its when offered. I have a burning desire to go to Antarctica, specifically to the South Pole so I can see where Robert Falcon Scott died.

I like to read books. I write novels and poems and stories in a secret writing closet before dawn each day. Oh and I got cancer at 37. That was a bummer. Spoiler! I’m still alive.

I’m represented by the amazing Rena Rossner of the Deborah Harris Agency.

This Appearing House by Ally Malinenko

About This Appearing House

For as long as anyone could remember there wasn’t a house at the dead end of Juniper Drive . . . until one day there was.

When Jac first sees the House, she’s counting down to the five-year anniversary of her cancer diagnosis, when she hopefully will be declared NED, or “no evidence of disease.” But with a house appearing, and her hands shaking, and a fall off her bike, Jac is starting to wonder if these are symptoms—or if something stranger is happening.
