In this Episode of Sacred Tension I’m joined by Satanic horror poet Simon Widdop to celebrate October and talk about our mutual obsession with horror. We discuss the psychological underpinnings of enjoying horror, how horror makes us think deeply about ethics, the Christian propaganda of supernatural horror, his latest book The Poet From the Black Lagoon, and more. Find Simon Widdop here.
