Episode Eight of Shadows at the Door: The Podcast

In this penultimate peril, guest writer Pete Alex Harris charts us into more gothic territory with his new ghost story that somehow feels like a classic.

In ‘Quicksilver Spirit’ we are reminded never to meet your heroes or idols, as our protagonist stands on both the threshold of a stately home and a dark secret.

After the production, join Mark Nixon and David Ault as they discuss Pete’s story and delve into the excellent music that you hear each week. They also become strangely angry about a 2003 sci-fi action film and Mark unveils more of his repertoire of voices.
