We delve into horror with Stewart Horn who read his story about a zombie invasion with a difference. We talk about why we love horror, why horror for children is important, how it has changed over time to embrace the complexities of modern life, and how it can help you as an LGBT+ person. We propose a recipe for hummus (Scottish style), plus a bonus poem, and a lot of humorous chat. And why Neil Gaiman and Charlie Brooker might want a word with us. Not to mention Werewolf vs Shark, round 4!
