Horror Happens interview

Had a lovely interview with Jay Kay of horrorhappens.com, as part of Women in Horror Month.
Archived at Soundcloud:

My segment comes in at around the 2:48 mark.

He and The Ghost run their talk show out of a bunker in New Jersey,  on the outskirts of Camp Blood.

Jay is so pleasant that I forgot it was an interview. I was sorry when we finished, because I wanted to know more about him. His interviews cover a range of activities in film, he asks excellent questions, is a fine conversationalist with interesting opinions of his own, and plays good music. The Charlie Rose of horror cinema.
