Happy end of April, listeners!

I hope Spring is springing all up in your corner of planet Earth and bringing you much joy for the outdoors. While out, I hope your headphones and mobile devices are tuned into our latest episode where we celebrate some really groovy women who have contributed to the horror community through non-fiction prose.

Hannah and Ashlee jump right into their [read]trospective of Carol J. Clover's Men Women and Chainsaws: Gender In The Modern Horror Film first by uniquely describing how the book came to their knowledge and second, a briefer on their favorite sections.

Shout out to the folks who responded to our Facebook and Twitter question about what were some of your favorite non-fiction horror by or about women:

Chelsey Burdon recommends Axelle Carolyn's It Lives Again!: Horror Movies In The New Millenium.
Alexandra West point us to The Dread of Difference: Gender and the Horror Film.
Andrew N. Shearer is hip to Renegade Sisters: Girl Gangs on Film by Bev Zalcock. (Mae West may have been a part of a girl gang. It was a lecture Ashlee heard many moons ago!)
Eileen Winslow is all about Mary Roach's Stiff: The Curious Lives Of Human Cadavers.
Rachel Hoover tips her hat to Chicago Haunts: Ghostly Lore of the Windy City by Ursula Bielski.
Melanie Light (@MisartessMel) says 'yea!' to Kathy The Cannibal by Sandra Lee.

In addition, give Isabel Pinedo's Recreational Terror: Women and the Pleasures of Horror Film Viewing, Barbara Creed's The Monstrous-Feminine: Film, Feminism, Psychoanalysis, and Rape-Revenge Films: A Critical Study by Alexandra Heller-Nicholas a spin if you haven't already.

Journalist, vlogger, and jill of many trades Lianne Spiderbaby reads from and talks about her upcoming book, Grindhouse Girls: Cinema's Hardest Working Women while having a general conversation about her professional pursuits. Thank you, Lianne! We hope to get listeners as excited about your book as Hannah and Ashlee are!
