Season 2, Episode 6: Are You Afraid of the Dark?

August 26, 2020

You're invited to join the Davenport Society as we gather round the campfire to discuss four episodes of the 90s television series: Are you Afraid of the Dark? We go in depth with "The Tale of the Twisted Claw", "The Tale of the Dark Music", The Tale of the Unfinished Painting", and "The Tale of Station 109.1". Apologies for some background noise during our intro discussion as we had some minor recording glitches while out by the campfire. Perhaps a creature was in our midst?

Season 2, Episode 5: Eerie Indiana

July 2, 2020

The Davenport gang investigates the center of weirdness in Eerie, Indiana. We discuss the series overall, and have a detailed discussion of four episodes: "Foreverware", "The Dead Letter", "Mr. Chaney", and "Zombies in P.J.s".

This is the first of our three summer episodes covering 90's childhood nostalgia, with the intention of bringing some lighthearted fun to a stressful year. Our discussion became much more serious and intense for this one though, which is likely due to the quality of this still relevant and insightful piece of 90's television.
