Post Mortem with Mick Garris officially enters the DREAD Podcast Network with their 100th episode on April 28th. But this is more than a minor milestone.

Other guests will also be announced as they are confirmed.
“I started interviewing people who fascinated me in high school. I began as a music journalist, interviewing everyone from Hendrix to Joplin and then some,” Garris explains. “I’ve always had curiosity, and it has never waned. We are now in our fifth season of Post Mortem. And I continue to learn something from every single intimate conversation we have on the show. From King to Cronenberg to Zombie. And it’s exciting to blast off from our new home at Dread Central. Where passion for our genre runs deep in the blood!”
“Meeting and recording interviews with over a hundred icons of the genre, and preserving them for fellow horror fans to find, enjoy and learn from, has been one of my proudest achievements as a producer,” says Post Mortem producer Joe Russo. “I am so excited to continue to build the legacy of Post Mortem with Dread Central. So we can keep on delivering the best in horror podcasting to our audience.”
