Join us for a celebration of podcasting — honoring the hosts who give so much of their time and passion, as well as the listeners who support that passion.
MORE ABOUT THIS EPISODE:
Back in 2014, the idea was had to celebrate something that is incredibly close to me and thousands, if not millions, of others around the world. That idea was to celebrate podcasts, podcasters, and podcast listeners with International Podcast Day. As somebody who has dedicated more than a decade to broadcasting, and indeed podcasting, it is quite special that it is being celebrated in this way.
Podcasts have the ability to inform, entertain, and be a voice for somebody who might not have one otherwise — and that is something quite special.
As I mentioned, I started podcasting back in 2009 with two other friends of mine. We talked about video games, and those days hold some of my fondest memories. Sadly, like most good things, it didn’t last. But it did spark my love for the platform, especially after I got out of radio. From there, I went on to start the Severed Scissors podcast, which was more or less just a stream of consciousness. That evolved into the Horror Shots podcast, which now lives on as this cast, the Ominous Origins podcast.
But enough about me. This day isn’t about me. It’s about all the wonderful podcasts out there, and I was in a very unique position to talk to many other podcasters about their projects and experiences. The Morbidly Beautiful website was gracious enough to have me on their network over a year ago, maybe close to two now. Since then, the network has grown significantly, bringing on many excellent podcasts reflecting a wide variety of styles and content.
We currently have six different casts on the network (with more on the way), including mine, as well as two audio drama style shows as well. I was lucky enough to sit down with members of each of the Morbidly Beautiful podcast hosts in one massive group interview that went off, surprisingly, without a hitch.
The discussion includes hosts from a couple of our newest shows, the incredible Not Your Final Girl and The Best Little Horror House in Philly podcasts, as well as from two of our popular flagship shows I Spit on your Podcast and They Mostly Podcast at Night. We even chat with the hosts of a brand new show coming to the network in October, Bloodhound Pix. And don’t miss last week’s show where we had an in-depth chat with Matthew Currie Holmes, filmmaker and host of the Couch Trip Cinema podcast, the first Morbidly Beautiful produced show on our network.
Each of these talented podcasters have their own stories and voices, as well as unique challenges and accomplishments to share. Getting them all to share their insights was an incredible adventure. I hope you have as much fun listening to it as I had recording it.
Each one of these shows can be found on the Morbidly Beautiful Network and supporting them all by listening, subscribing, and leaving reviews is beyond appreciated. There’s never a dull moment, never a lonely second when you have access to a podcast. So if you haven’t heard one or any of these shows yet, do yourself a favor and get on that!
ABOUT THIS PODCAST:
Welcome to the Ominous Origins Podcast, a Horror Shots production. If you were previously a fan of the Horror Shots Podcast, this is the same great show with the same compelling content focused on myth, mysterious creatures, unexplained events, spooky stories — and even some of the strangest and most disturbing true crime stories. As always, our goal is to entertain, but also to enlighten with short, well-researched episodes on a variety of fascinating topics.
I hope you enjoy the show. If you would like to show your support, reviews on iTunes or wherever you listen to your favorite podcasts are always greatly appreciated and help out so much.
