Wit Without Wisdom, Ep. 10
Are there any two holidays that have more in common than Easter and Halloween?
Seriously, think about it: they are both a religious celebration. Most years you have to go to work the next day. They both deal in spirits (some of the Holy kind and some of the unholy type). Resurrections are standard for both. Kids and adults are often dressed in funny outfits.
And most of all, there is all that candy.
It seemed to us that whether you’re hoping for the Easter Bunny or The Great Pumpkin, this was the ideal time for Wit Without Wisdom to run our Halloween Special. Plus, being that it is Raymond’s Birthday, we thought a break from editing a new episode was just the present he deserved.
So, sit back with that chocolate Easter bunny or go find that old bowl of leftover Halloween candy and join us for a trip down Spooky Lane where we’ll:
Share some terrifying true stories
Read some of the spookiest two-sentence stories every told
Perform an incredible theatrical re-enactment of the most famous Urban Legend
And, explore an incredibly horrifying tale pulled from Today’s headlines
Even if you’ve heard this episode previously on The Writers’ Podcast, you’ll want to listen again because it is so much scarier in the pastel light of Easter.

We’re S.K. Anthony and Raymond Esposito, your hosts at Writers After Dark. She writes those urban-fantasy–superhero-badass-chicks-with-a-touch-of-romance stories and he writes those dark fiction-things-that-go-bump-in-the night tales.
When it comes to writing, we don’t agree on genre, but we do agree that . . . we love stories . . . and one of the things we love most: hanging out in our mostly-sober, Writers After Dark studio and debating the merits of just about anything related to the story of life.
