Retroist Halloween Special 2018

Retroist Halloween Special 2018

Welcome to the 2018 edition of the Retroist Podcast. On today’s show, I finally shut up and turn the microphone over to other people who tell their Halloween stories.

The Retroist Podcast is divided into two sections. A smaller section where I tell a story related to the subject of the podcast and a longer section about the subject. If you enjoy those smaller section, you will enjoy this podcast.

In this episode of the show, I am joined by some new contributors and a couple of Retroist regulars. Joining me are Allison, Charles, Josh, Ashley and Vic Sage. Who tell stories of crazy costumes, great Halloween TV, memorable decorations and unusual Halloween destinations.

Production Notes

I enjoy putting together these special, but they are challenging. Not the editing, but wrangling the people who have the time and finding stories that will work or are consistent. The last few specials, have felt a bit forced because of this.

So this will most likely be my last special that involves guest submissions. I have written 2 scripted Halloween specials. If I can find some people and record them in the future, I would release those, but I can say with confidence that this will be the last of this type of show you will hear for the Retroist Podcast.

Thanks for listening to the show and I hope you have a great week.
