The Horror Pod Class

Hey class!  Come meet Mike and Tyler, two high school teachers who absolutely love to talk and write about the horror genre!  We also own and write for a website named Signal Horizon, where you can get the latest news, reviews, and analysis of works from the horror and dark science fiction genres!

On this episode of Horror Podclass we talk about Stephen King's IT, both the movie, novel, and mini-series.  We get into how nostalgia plays such an important role in those works, how it can be used as both a positive and negative force, and where you can go to scratch your itch for more 80's nostalgia.

Here are a couple of places that we referenced that you can go for more discussion on IT and nostalgia:
