Progressively Horrified

We, weird comic book people who have a horror podcast, finally talked about the MCU. Are you happy now?

Show Notes

🏳‍🌈 Happy Pride Month!

We had originally planned to release our Rocky Horror Episode this week, but then Doctor Strange and the Multiverse of Madness dropped and boy does it have exactly the required amount of queer content to earn some kind of "LGBT+ Friendly" tag in a time and with a character that really could have used good queer rep. So we're here to talk about Monster Mothers, Pride flag pins, and Doctor Strange's battle with his own traditional masculinity.

What is Progressively Horrified?

A podcast that holds horror to standards horror never agreed to. Hosts Jeremy Whitley, Ben Kahn, Emily Martin and guests watch, read, listen to, and check out movies, tv shows, comics, books, art and anything else from the horror genre and discuss it through a progressive lens. We'll talk feminism in horror, LGBTQ+ issues and representation in horror, racial and social justice in horror, disability and mental health/illness in horror, and the work of female and POC directors, writers, and creators in horror.
We're the podcast horror never agreed to take part in.
