Maybe the best horror podcast out there.
Faculty of Horror is one of the best researched, and produced shows- let alone HORROR podcasts out there. The academic (and feminist) perspective on horror is hugely important in a genre that has a hard time being taken seriously. Give them a listen, and share it with a friend.

a treat for fans
I love how they take a perspective on horror that most fans hadn't considered. It makes you think and reconsider how you view films and their intent.
