Sirens of Scream
We are all familiar with various classic fairy tales and fables that we began to hear as children: Snow White, Cinderella, The Pied Piper, etc. Many of these stories have been revived in the form of colorful and family friendly Disney films now, but most of these stories have much more adult themed roots, and this is what we're exploring for this episode. Grab your blanket and some tea and come cuddle up with us for some "scareytales".
The Sirens are taking on a pretty huge topic this time with our attempt to cut to the core of why we fear artificial intelligence. We dug in to both real life AI applications (and fears), as well as some our most influential pop culture examples. We've also got a ton of new recommendations for you to check out.
A lot of modern horror tropes can be traced back to ancient stories. In this episode, friend of the Sirens and lover of horror and history, June Gregory, teaches us all some fascinating historical horror facts!
With the recent release of The Mummy, the first in a series of new Universal monster movies, we felt inspired to talk about some of the best (and maybe a few of the worst) attempts at these characters in modern media. As always, we've also got some new recommendations for you, too!
Sierra is taking us on a trippy ride through some of the most infamous alien abduction and sighting stories in American history, including one of her own! Jackie and Melissa are sick (again!), but curled up in blankets and bringing a load of new recs for you.
It's our 1st birthday and we're partying hard by inviting a lineup of previous guests, listeners and friends on to the show with us! There will be tons of recommendations, talk of personal terrors and much reminiscing about our favorite moments of the past year.
Bringing something new to you today with our first episode of Sirens Radio, where we dig in to the urban legends and history behind songs that have creepy lyrics or roots. We kept this one a bit shorter, but had some fun with it, so please let us know what you think!
We're so excited to share this episode with you because we got a Sirens girl crush on the show, video game developer and artist Gabby DaRienzo. You've heard us mention her current project, A Mortician's Tale, a few times on the show. We discuss that as well as her other game projects, her podcast Play Dead and share some of our own favorite gaming moments. And as usual, we've got a stack of new recommendations to share!
The Sirens are digging through the found footage to make some judgments on what works and what doesn't in this modern horror niche. As usual, we've also got some new recommendation for you in our What We're Loving Now segment.
This time, the Sirens are confessing their fears. We'll talk about the things that send us hiding under the covers and read off a few of yours as well. We've also brought a new list of recommendations for you to check out!
