This week, the crew gets scary as they discuss the lasting impact of Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark from Alvin Schwartz and Stephen Gammell and what the stories continue to matter nearly 40 years after their release. Kate leads the team through the history, controversy in schools, and ultimately the importance of children's horror in relation to some of the world's darker moments. Oh, and Kate scares Adrian by reciting some of Scwartz's scarier stories.
