KCRW unveils the new season of ‘Here Be Monsters’ tomorrow!

Here Be Monsters is a podcast about fear and the unknown… the traits that make each of us human. Producers Jeff Emtman and Bethany Denton will bring the show back for its 5th season starting tomorrow – Wednesday, August 17th!

If you’re curious about the world’s ‘whys’ and ‘hows’ — Here Be Monsters will help you explore them. The answers can be both dark and reassuring. Some of the show’s best episodes have addressed psychological warfare, crow mourning rituals, impostor syndrome, sex offender treatment and supernatural phenomena.

The new season of Here Be Monsters includes 20 brand new episodes that approach the full range of human experience: sexual synesthesia, brain surgeries, the husbandry of flesh eating beetles, and more.

In tomorrow’s season premiere, host Jeff Emtman faces one of his fears – strangers, relying on their kindness (and a mental laser beam) as he hitchhikes through Arkansas with a thunderstorm on his heels.
