But... there hasn't been a podcast here for ten years, not since... the accident...

In this special 'lost' episode, comedy gods Phill Jupitus and Jason Manford take a break from touring with Chitty Chitty Bang Bang to talk terror in Phill's back garden. Trigger warning: contains frank chat about spiders, Childcatchers, The Ring, dead otters, and sprouts.

Sarah is sorry for the poor recording quality and for being an #apologeticbitch. 

Special thanks this episode to Tim Bazell for audio-deshafting and the theme music. 

In each episode of The Fear, Sarah Morgan interviews her favourite funny people about the gut-clenching terrors that haunt us all - you know, for LOLs. Each guest brings in three terrors - something from their childhood, a memorable horror moment from film or tv, and a fear they live with now. It's creepy, kooky, mysterious, but not spooky. Alright, it's spooky. Explicit rating for scares and swears.
