BSG #78: House, Activate! / The Spite House

Would you stay in a haunted house to make big bucks? This week, the Squad is talking about Johnny Compton’s debut horror novel, The Spite House. We discuss what makes the house scary, how the book’s secrets are revealed, and what the book is really about below the surface. Then we get into some listener feedback and preview what’s coming up on the blog. Check out the new Amazon Prime series, Daisy Jones and the Six, based on the novel by Taylor Jenkins Reid, for our next Othersode on 4/3 where we’ll be joined by returning guest Jayce Chambliss! Then, read along for our next Bookpisode on 4/17 when special guest Ellis joins us to talk about Our Share of Night by Mariana Enriquez.
