Season 2 Ep Room

Everyones a Critic

< All Episodes


Samantha awakens in an unexpected place. Bob is showing signs of stress as he allows her to experience a reward of sorts. Todd surprises everyone with his culinary skills. Samantha longs to escape and Bob longs for pizza. Small talk is not easy at this table.

Samantha can pick from two rooms: The first room is about an artist just like herself. The other is about a quiet little retirement home in the American South and Sam has no plans to retire anytime soon…

The words we put out to the world can follow us for the rest of our lives. Something said in the moment can have a permanent impact only felt years later. An art critic uses her words as an art form itself while an artist debuts the biggest exhibition of his career. The two have quite a few things to say to each other about art…

If life imitates art, what does death imitate? Let’s just hope it sells well.

Thank you so much for listening to the eleventh episode of our second season! We also cater small birthday gatherings of one or less. Please continue to support and share this wonderful show with all your horror-loving friends.

And come back next Friday, May 29th, for our companion Behind the Door episode. After the plaster hardens and the paint dries, you can safely seat yourself at the roundtable as Jason and Brooks discuss “Everyone’s a Critic” with author Lachlan Watt and actor Kelly Nienaltowski.

Do you like what we’ve been doing so far? Please consider subscribing to our Patreon. Even just a dollar a month can help us reach our goals of world domination. We need to pay the internet bill after all these months now and they refuse to take our firstborns as payment. Still waiting to find out if secondborns count or not.

Lastly, go read a book. If you don’t like it, go write a new one. If you don’t like a movie, go make a new one. If you don’t enjoy a podcast, go make a new one. If you don’t enjoy a song….add a little bit of yourself to the human zeitgeist of expression and share what you create. Make what you like and find others who like it, too. #staygrey2020

We’ll see you in two weeks for Episode 12, same Grey time, same Grey channel.
