[Podcast] Dragon Con 2017 – Twin Peaks Finale – Episode 231 – Horror News Radio

The Grue Crew – or what’s left of them – is pretty out of it after another exhaustive weekend at DragonCon in Atlanta. Yes, the massive convention was enough to wipe out Doc Rotten, but Thomas Mariani steps in just in time along with fellow DragonCon Horror Track contributors Christopher G. Moore and Bill Mulligan! The three discuss all the panels they attended, as well as the gorgeous cosplays and drunken antics. Tales of crowded parade routes, meeting heroes and flirting with Grand Duchesses? All this and more is discussed here on Horror News Radio! Be sure to stick around to hear Thomas gab about the recent Twin Peaks finale and a truncated Horror News of the Week about another big shake up for Star Wars! It’s an unusual episode of Horror News Radio, but it’ll be one for the books!

As always, the HNR Grue-Crew would love to hear from you, the listeners, the fans.
