Episode 001 — Jenny Slate

On our premiere episode of I’m Afraid That, we sit down with writer, actress and comedian Jenny Slate (you may know her from Obvious Child, Marvel’s Venom, Big Mouth, or just her very perfect Instagram account). She opens up about her very deep and longstanding fear of ghosts. We talk about growing up in a haunted house, unfinished business and all things ghostly.

We also talk with fear expert Margee Kerr, author of Scream: Chilling Adventures in the Science of Fear. She’s done her own ghost hunting, and has travelled the world in search of the spookiest sites. Her book is amazing, and you should definitely pick it up!
