On November 13, 2018, novelist and podcast Alan Welker released an interview with Isaac Thorne for Welker’s The 13th Story podcast. Welker writes horror. He launched The 13th Story podcast to connect with other horror authors and discuss the genre.
“I was happy to help launch Alan’s podcast by being his second episode interview,” Isaac says. “I only wish I hadn’t just spent the day nursing a sick cat. If you want to know what a tired Isaac Thorne brain fart smells like, listen to my answer to Alan’s question about the last horror movie I watched.”
Gassy brain aside, Isaac says he enjoyed the interview, including the opportunity to discuss his work and influences. In addition, Alan and Isaac discussed processes, Isaac’s previous short stories and his collection Road Kills, and his current work in progress.
The 13th Story premiered on Halloween 2018 and featured an interview with horror author Nick Younker. New episodes appear on the 13th of each month and Halloween. In addition to his podcast page, you can find Alan Welker on Twitter.
Isaac recently returned to The Rob and Slim Show and read an excerpt from the short story that started it all, Nobody Was Here. This episode marked Isaac’s sixth appearance on the show.
“These guys are the best,” Isaac says. “I’ve appeared on several of their Halloween specials. I wasn’t able to make the actual Halloween episode this year, so they invited me on the week before. I had a fantastic time.”
As part of his segment on the show, Isaac read an excerpt from his short tale of dark comic horror Nobody Was Here. The story is available as a standalone ebook and audiobook. It is also available as part of Isaac’s Road Kills collection in paperback. An audiobook version of Road Kills is also available.

The show launched a GoFundMe to help pay Rob’s dad’s bills while he heals. You can still donate to the GoFundMe if you want to help.
“Rob and Slim have been really good to me over the years,” Isaac says. “They were one of my earliest podcast appearances, and have been fantastic supporters of my work. As a rider myself, I know how dangerous the roads can be. Wildlife, weather, and other drivers are all more hazardous when you’re on a bike. I’m hoping Rob’s dad heals well.”
As part of his segment on the show, Isaac read an excerpt from his short tale of dark comic horror Bedside Manner. The story is available as a standalone ebook and audiobook.

In May of 2018, Isaac Thorne appeared on the Blood on the Rock podcast, where he discussed the history of capital punishment and read an excerpt from “Safety First,” a short story that appears in Road Kills.
“It was a fascinating conversation,” Isaac says of the experience. “Akshay Tailor and I discussed several highlights from capital punishment throughout history. For example, I had no idea that the death sentence was first codified way back in the 18th Century BC. There were 25 reasons the state could kill you, but none of them were murder.
“Blood on the Rocks seems unique in the horror podcast sphere,” he continues. “It’s a podcast that centers on the discussion of real-life horrific and gruesome stories from throughout history. I thoroughly enjoyed my time with Akshay.”
After the discussion, Isaac read an excerpt from “Safety First,” which appears in the short story collection Road Kills and airs regularly in audio form on SCRM Radio.

In his fourth appearance, Isaac reads ‘Safety First’ on The Rob and Slim Show. The show aired live on April 18, 2018. Isaac also caught the guys up on what he’s been doing for the past six months, including the modest success of his collection of short tales of dark comic horror Road Kills. After the reading, Rob, Slim, Slambo, and Isaac attempted to make up a horror story (or at the very least a horrible story) on-the-fly.
“I always have a great time with these guys,” Isaac says of the appearance. “This time I even ordered some of their merch from wehavemerch.com. I also had a German doctor examine this thing on my tongue on the air to see if I could finally determine what to do about it.”
The Rob and Slim Show airs live every Wednesday night on ipnation. All shows, including Isaac’s most recent appearance, are then archived on PodBean. You can also catch the complete interview with Isaac on Rob and Slim’s YouTube channel.

YouTube horror narrator and video creator Immunity Zero recently released the first part of writer Marc Selby’sThe Natures of Men and Monsters on the Read with Immunity YouTube channel. The story stars Lance’s Creepy Reading, another YouTuber, as Nathan, a vampire-like private detective. Isaac plays Nathan’s werewolf partner Jersey.
“It’s great to be back in a voice acting gig that isn’t my own creation,” Isaac says. “There are times when the ability to perform in a gruff voice comes in handy. It just so happened that the Jersey character is a role I felt like I fit.”
Part 1 of The Natures of Men and Monsters also stars YouTuber Swamp Dweller as Jimmy and SCRM Radio owner Tra Cee as Beth. YouTuber Raggedy Anzy created the artwork.
“It was a pleasure to be included among these folks as they were creating this unique new combination crime drama and horror story,” Isaac says. “I’m looking forward to the release of Part 2 and beyond. It’s not often that I do voice acting in work other than my own or for my own SCRM Radio programs. The last time was when I played the character of Frank in Carmen Online Theater Group’s The Burbs series.”
YouTube horror narrator Immunity Zero releases new videos every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. Special releases, like The Natures of Men and Monsters occur on Saturdays. Immunity Zero is also counted among the SCRM Radio family of hosts and creators. SCRM Radio is available for listening 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
About The Natures of Men and Monsters
Written by Marc Selby, The Natures of Men and Monsters tells the story of Nathan, a vampire-like private investigator who along with his werewolf partner Jersey are investigating a homicide. In addition to the audio production by Immunity Zero, the text of the tale is available at the author’s blog.
Isaac Thorne appeared on BEYOND THE VOID Horror Podcast, where he and host Alex developed a storyline for a fictional horror movie titled CADILLAC KILLERS.
“I have to admit that I was nervous about doing this,” Isaac says. “Nearly every Monday, the podcast hosts Alex and Britni pick a listener or host-generated movie title at random and create a movie storyline for it on the spot. I hope I was able to do the segment justice!”
For Monday, February 5, 2018, Alex and Isaac drew the movie title THE CADILLAC KILLERS. What developed from that title was an action-packed thriller about a gang of murderers who answer only to an entity known as The Voice. What ties these killers together is their love of murder and their love of their Cadillac cars, which they often use in some fashion to facilitate their murders.
“It’s amazing what creative brainstorming between two or more people can turn up,” Isaac adds. “What starts out feeling like an impossible task eventually fills an hour or more of podcast time with action, drama, and gore.”
About Beyond The Void
BEYOND THE VOID airs two episodes per week: one on Monday and one on Wednesday. Monday episodes are typically dedicated to segments such as “Horror Shots,” “Grave Plots,” and horror news. Thursday episodes are often comprised of film reviews. Alex and Britni review two films of a somewhat similar nature or background.
“I listen to BEYOND THE VOID twice a week every week,” Isaac says. “It’s a great commute podcast.”
You can follow BEYOND THE VOID podcast on Twitter @btvcast or on Facebook. You can find the podcast itself on iTunes or at longlivethevoid.com. The website also includes the recipes for Horror Shots and a wealth of other information.
“I’m excited to be a part of the works with TN Horror News now,” Isaac says. “My reviews for them will be separate and different than my reviews for The Horrorcist, so readers won’t be getting the same work from two different sources. Another plus is the simple fact that I get to watch twice the number of movies.”
About TN Horror News
Along with film reviews from their team of writers, TN Horror has a podcast, THE HORROR BASEMENT, which is hosted by Jim Jam and Jonny Le’roy. Most recently, the duo interviewed George Romero’s son, Cameron Romero, about his upcoming Rise of the Living Dead project.
“I’ve been listening to this father and son podcasting team for a while now,” Isaac says. “I’m privileged to have been asked to appear on their latest podcasting endeavor. They’re busy folks!”
Together, Isaac and the hosts discussed the combination of horror and comedy and Isaac’s newest compendium of short tales of dark comic horror, Road Kills.
Along with Isaac’s interview, D.C. and Michael review the NetFlix original horror comedy Little Evil.
