BONUS EPISODE: Emily Zarka / Krampus
Listen now
Another special bonus episode today, this time focusing on Christmas monsters. Dr Emily Zarka has made an academic study of things that go bump in the night, and as well as teaching her students how to survive the monster apocalypse (we assume) she's the host of PBS show Monstrum. We invited her to come in for a chat earlier this year about the Krampus, and all the many Anti-Clauses out there that threaten to punish the bad instead of bringing goodies to the good. Beware the giant Yule Cat everyone; after this episode it will haunt your nightmares...
