Fans of the This Is Horror podcast should be very familiar with The Outer Dark, hosted by Scott Nicolay. Diving deep into the genre of weird fiction, The Outer Dark casts a wide net over the practitioners of the weird, providing excellent discussion and commentary from the best in the business. This Is Horror is proud to welcome Scott, and The Outer Dark, into the This Is Horror family. Recipient of the coveted and prestigious 2015 This Is Horror Award for Best Podcast, it makes good sense to make The Outer Dark a part of This Is Horror, offering listeners a full spectrum of horror and weird fiction interviews and discussion you just won’t find anywhere else.
Scott Nicolay said:
Rebooting The Outer Dark on This Is Horror doesn’t feel like starting over—it feels like coming home. It’s where we belong, where we can thrive, and where we can fulfil our mission.
Editor-in-chief Michael David Wilson had this to say about The Outer Dark:
I’ve been a fan of The Outer Dark since episode one so when I saw The Outer Dark was temporarily homeless picking it up for This Is Horror was a no-brainer. The Outer Dark is one of the most important and diverse podcasts out there. Scott Nicolay and The Outer Dark are essential listening, the show must go on, and I’m delighted it will go on with This Is Horror. Long live The Outer Dark!
