Introducing The Podcast

Welcome to our show!

This is the first ever episode of –And Now The Podcast Starts! And it’s not quite the first episode that we planned.

Kirsty, Stella, Howard and Dan had always hoped that they would all feature together in the first episode of the show, but the UK-wide (indeed, virtually planet-wide) lockdown caused by COVID-19 virus has made that impossible. But luckily, the team have been recording eclectic material for months which means that Kirsty and Dan can be your hosts to introduce the concept of the podcast and play some clips from previously recorded material featuring Stella and Howard, so that you can get to know everybody.

Featuring a discussion between Kirsty and Dan introducing the podcast; then a chat between Stella and Dan about the best short horror films seen at Grimmfest, Manchester’s premiere genre film festival, in 2019; and finally a recording of the first live presentation by The Lee/Cushing Podcast, in which Howard, Dan and a live audience at Stage Fright, the Salford horror theatre festival, discuss Dracula AD 1972.
