APL Volumes

Mar 6, 2023

Welcome to APL Volumes! The first season of this new podcast from the Austin Public Library is a deep-dive genre study into Horror. In this episode, APL librarian Maddy and her guests, Jesus and Nancie, talk about the history of horror and its subgenres; Stephen King’s role as the modern, well, king of horror; how The Shining shaped their relationships to horror media – and of course, whether the movie or the book is better.

You can find a list of books, shows, movies, and other podcasts we mention at
