The Horror Pod Class: The Corona Episode

Welcome to the Junior Year Episode 18 of the Horror Pod Class.  My name is Tyler, and I am the editor in chief of Signal Horizon a company dedicated to exploring horror in and out of the classroom.  When I am not managing signal horizon I am a teacher at a local hs here in KC Missouri. Tonight I am joined by my cohost and monster ambassador here at SH, award-winning writer Orrin Grey. (Say HI Orrin)   Today we report live from our own Quarantine in Kansas City Missouri and what better way to spend a quarantine than to talk about our favorite disease-related apocalyptic fiction. It’s a little too real but if Captain Trips is knocking on your door, maybe stay inside and check out some of this fiction.
