23 Oct

Jump scares, sacred stories, and contractions, oh my! Darcie Little Badger, Nathan Adler, and Stephen Graham Jones join Shaun Duke and David Annandale to discuss Indigenous Representation in Horror. Our guests share why they enjoy horror, who the real monsters of horror often are, especially given colonial history, what not to do when representing Indigenous stories, the violence inherent in cultural appropriation, and what both brings our guests hope and excites them about the horror genre.

We hope you enjoy the episode!

Signal Boost #21: Nathan Adler and Darcie Little Badger

3 Oct

In today’s episode of Signal Boost, we kick off our month of focusing on horror writers from traditionally marginalized communities. First up, Jen talks to Nathan Adler — artist, writer, Anishinaabe and Jewish member of the Lac Des Milles Lacs First Nation — about his novel, Wrist, how Anishinaabe stories informed the monster and how his identities contribute to the topics he explores.

Then Darcie Little Badger — Lipan Apache writer and scientist — joins Jen to talk about indigenous futurism, how she uses horror to wrestle with her personal ghosts, and about her newest story, “The Whalebone Parrot,” and the history that informs it.

We hope you enjoy the episode!
