Editor’s Note: In today’s episode of Tea and Non-Fiction we explore the topic of the Slenderman covered in the HBO documentary Beware the Slenderman. We also delve into our mutual dislike of group related activities, because in our heart of hearts we’re a bunch of anti-social podcasters.

Murder in the Generative Kitchen
by: Meg Pontecorvo
Meg Pontecorvo’s Murder in the Generative Kitchen poses many relevant questions that in today’s society we seem to be scratching the surface of.
Technology is such a theme in itself. We, as a people, are constantly looking to improve and grow our technology. We keep trying to get technology to fill the gaps and the spaces in our lives that we feel are lacking.
A lot of what Pontecorvo does reminded me a lot of the show Black Mirror, but Pontecorvo is clever. She doesn’t make the central theme as obvious. She makes her readers work for it.
The Phone Call
by Rosie Gonce
“Hello, is this Samantha Harvey?”
Sam sighed and reluctantly said “Yes, it is.” emphasizing the annoyance in her tone. No one ever called her Samantha. It was an immediate sign that it was someone she did not want to talk to.
Telemarketer or bill collector? she wondered, trying to remember if there was a bill she had forgotten about.
Why are they calling so early?! The clock on her wall read 6:10 am.
“It says here that you are the ‘In case of emergency’ contact person for Nathaniel McDouglas.”
Sam’s heart sank. It sank the way it always did when someone mentioned Nathaniel.
“Well…Um…” Sam gulped.
This was awkward, she thought.
Editor’s Note: In today’s episode of The Horror Show, we tackle the verdict of Michael Peterson’s case! We also have a guest poem that highlights the importance of the Peterson’s pipe. Oh, don’t worry we also get very sidetracked with Thanksgiving Day murders.
