In a love letter to Halloween, Jeff C. Carter wrote 31 fun-sized Halloween tales and compiled them all into one great book, We Bleed Orange and Black. In this seriously funky year, Jeff hopes that it helps to fill a void while also putting you in the Halloween spirit! Discussions also include childhood nostalgia, masks and candy, and the Japanese tradition of Bon Odori. Visit BigSeance.com/173 for more.
