338. Indigenous Representation in Horror — A Discussion w/ Darcie Little Badger, Nathan Adler, and Stephen Graham Jones

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!
