Ultrasonic Alarm Call Episode 13: Terror For Blood Town

Be afraid! Because this is a Very Special Halloween episode of Ultrasonic Alarm Call, prairie dog‘s most sanity shattering podcast.

We begin our chilling audio adventure with an examination of the recently exhumed and reanimated lecture series, Chicken & Wine, and learn a terrible truth about nasal irrigation.

From there, we brave the existential horror that is the City of Regina’s Ideas Fair. Oh, the many mind-blistering mysteries we unearth about our city’s future!

And as if that’s not enough, Shane finishes off his 31 Days Of Monstrous Horror…. with an axe! Then we ask, what film was so terrifying, so gut-manglingly demented that even our Maestro of the Macabre Movie wouldn’t dare include it in his series of sinister cinema? Listen in to find out.

We end things off with a cavalcade of very pleasant interviews with several of the agreeable folk who partook of the Ideas Fair festivities. It’s so amiable and uplifting, it’s almost nausea inducing.

Ultrasonic Alarm Call 13 – Terror For Blood Town: At the table, Carle Steel, Shane Hnetka and me as your guest host. Music by the Lazy MKs. Runtime: 40 min bone-chilling dread, 7 min 30 sec mild jitters.

A MESSAGE TO OUR READERS The coronavirus pandemic is a moment of reckoning for our community. We’re all hurting. It’s no different at Prairie Dog, where COVID-19 has wiped out advertisements for events, businesses and restaurants as Regina and Saskatchewan hunker down in quarantine. As an ad-supported newspaper already struggling in a destabilized media landscape, this is devastating. We’re hoping you, our loyal readers, can help fill in the gap so Prairie Dog can not only continue to exist but even expand our coverage — both in print and online. Please consider donating, either one-time or, even better, on a monthly basis.

We believe Prairie Dog‘s unique voice is needed, now more than ever. For 27 years, this newspaper has been a critical part of Regina’s social, cultural and democratic infrastructure. Don’t let us fade away. There’s only one Prairie Dog. If it’s destroyed, it’s never coming back.
