This week, we're keeping with the horror themes by talking about all the reasons that Jordan Peele matters. We discuss Peele's history in television, film, and production. From the comedy years, time with Keegan-Michael Key, and most importantly how Peele has been reshaping horror. We cover how his directorial debut Get Out with Blumhouse has set the tone for horror going forward, changing its face, and forcing companies to realize that diverse stories, and in particular Black stories matter in the genre. Additionally, we discuss how his filmmaking has also caused a resurgence of social horror, and how his production company, Monkeypaw Productions has been moving the genre forward with films like Candyman and the HBO series Lovecraft Country which he produced with Bad Robot.

And we cover it all with the help of LaNeysha from So Here's What Happened and Did You Have To?, who you can follow on Twitter @NeyshaPlays.
