The “Julie Says So” MOVIE MINUTE Podcast (w/ help from HAUNTED AF)

“Ugh…now they’re screaming about movies.”

Rebekah Black and I love working together. It started years ago, during our CBS Radio days. We worked on morning shows for different stations but palled around in the break-room whenever we could. We started covering movies together and the rest is history…sort of.

Scary Stories

Free Passes to “Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark” from HAUNTED AF!

I love seeing, reviewing and writing about movies but my side-hustle is my guilty pleasure: Ghost stories!
That’s why I started the Haunted AF podcast with my friend Rebekah Black, who also loves a good scary story. We just started Season 2 and have had terrifying TRUE tales, from ghostly voices inside the Lizzy Borden house to what might be actual ghost photos. It’s not all chills though, like this story about a ghost ape who’s really into self-pleasure.
Please subscribe to our podcast at Hauntedaf.com and grab some passes to see Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark while you’re there. Then check out the trailer below. Dang…this looks way scarier than that nasty monkey story!

Introducing the “Haunted AF” Podcast: Do You Like Scary Stories?

If you know me personally, you know that I love a good ghost story. I love hearing them and telling them and once I get started, you can forget about getting anything else done for the day. This is why I started the Haunted AF podcast with my friend Rebekah Black, who is also more than a little obsessed with scary stories. We won’t be creeping into haunted houses or ghost hunting on our own (not yet at least), but each episode features stories from people who’ve experienced something they simply can’t explain. We started in March with three episodes, and have been adding more weekly. You can find the Haunted AF podcast on iTunes and Spotify (please subscribe and give us a quick review!) but I thought I’d share them right here as well, to get you started (make sure you start at Episode 1). Hope you enjoy it and please let us know if you have a scary story of your own at hauntedafpodcast@gmail.com!

PODCAST: “mother!” Movie Review & Punctuation Debate

We simply couldn’t stop talking about mother! after seeing it the other night. We debated, then agreed, then flat out fought about it’s meaning and whether or not it has any merits. So, are you planning to see mother! this weekend? If so, you might want to listen to my chat with Rebekah Black and Chic (Red Carpet Crash) from Wednesday night. Given a chance, we’d probably still be sitting at Trinity Hall drinking and fighting about it!

PODCAST: Cocktails & Our “IT” Movie Review

I saw the 2017 adaption of Stephen King’s IT with some girlfriends, then we got cocktails and discussed it. Thanks to Rebekah Black, Tracy Martin Taylor and Adelfa Cardenas for joining me in the podcast. Especially Adelfa, who never read or saw the original IT and based her review on the video’s COVER!

PODCAST: “It Comes at Night” Review & “Wonder Woman” Debate (Do Women HAVE to Like It?)

Rebekah Black and I saw It Comes at Night last night and it left us wildly depressed…in a good way. Is that possible? Listen to the podcast to hear our thoughts about the latest from Texas filmmaker Trey Edward Shults (read more about him HERE). We also have a spirited discussion about Wonder Woman and whether or not women HAVE to like it…because Rebekah Black DIDN’T! Continue reading →
