Episode notes

The Witches

BOO! It’s our Halloween episode! And as a special treat, we are joined by the hosts of the horror movie podcast ‘Ruined,’ Halle Kiefer and Alison Leiby. At the beginning of the show, we pit the “Halloweenies” (Alonso, Alison, and Ify) against the “Horror Freaks” (Drea and Halle) in a series of Halloween-inspired questions. The “Weenies” are quizzed on scary movies, and the “Freaks” are quizzed on NON-scary Halloween movies. After that, we discuss the new Anne Hathaway performance piece, The Witches. And at the end….there’s a little surprise that may terrify or delight. You’ll have to listen in to find out which reaction you will have…..BWAHAHAHA!
