We’ll be on several panels on the Creator’s Track, which holds events in the Barrel Spring Room on the second level of the Hyatt Regency Orlando on International Drive.

On Friday, 8pm will see us on the Invasion of the Podcasters panel, and at 9pm we will be moderating the infamous Sick and Twisted Panel, complete with free booze (21+, obviously) and some of the most messed up shit you’ve ever heard.

Then on Saturday, I will be discussing Women In Horror at noon, both Tom and I will be talking about TV Spooks vs. Real Life Haunts at 2pm, and we’ll be at the signing table from 5pm-6pm, selling books and meeting and greeting. At 7pm, I will be on a panel called A Spike in the Ear.

Sunday, I will be discussing Twin Peaks on the panel devoted to that at 11am, and Tom will be talking about why we love villains so much on the Sympathy for the Devil panel at 2pm.

In between all the panels, we will be wandering around the con, so if you’re a fan and you see us, pop up and say hello; we don’t bite (much). We’re looking forward to seeing all you crazy kids there!

 

Episode Seven: The Mammoth Mountain Poltergeist

On this episode, Tom and Jenny discuss the case that started it all. Jenny was primarily a horror writer until Tom told her about a horrifying poltergeist experience he had endured in 1982, when he was thirteen years old. Objects moved in impossible ways, creepy noises like human voices came out of thin air, and an eerie presence seemed to watch him and his family at every turn, and followed them to a total of three locations. Tom gives a rundown of some of the phenomena, using current pictures of one of the locations in order to jog his memory. Tom and Jenny also discuss the poltergeist activity that rekindled at their own home more than thirty years after the original incidents. If you’d like to know more about the case, Tom and Jenny wrote a book about it called The Mammoth Mountain Poltergeist, and they’ve also been on a few podcasts talking about the details, such as here and here.
