After having great fun with the Pilot episode, we’re looking to make #GABhangsout a monthly thing!
Once again I got to host a fun and thought-provoking panel with amazing guests, this time on the subject of Horror.
We discuss the stereotyping used in horror, and how lazy writing tends to vilify legitimate mental health conditions, and medical practices.
