Greg Hall on Mystery Theatre

October 23rd, 2020

I once said that if Greg Hall didn’t exist, the horror genre would have to invent him. That’s still true. He’s one of a kind. An improve comic who became an internet radio pioneer who went on to write stories and books leavened with equal dashes of horror and outrageous humor. He’s a versatile guy, but he’s perhaps best known for his alter ego The Funky Werepig, a podcast host who is to Greg Hall what Tony Clifton was to Andy Kaufman.

Over the years, The Funky Werepig podcast has interviewed some of the biggest names in horror.

Among the Werepig’s guests have been Joe R. Lansdale, Lisa Morton, F. Paul Wilson, Lucy Snyder, Thomas F. Monteleone, and many more. If you have a favorite genre writer, chances are they’ve done the Werepig.

Greg’s podcast has moved around a bit over the years, starting with a good run on BlogTalk Radio before moving to TMV Cafe and then to the now-defunct ParaMania Radio. It’s currently available on YouTube.

This week, you can also catch Greg appearing as a special guest on Prime Stage Mystery Theatre, where he helps introduce Episode 4 by recounting his story about living in a house with haunted plumbing. He shared the tale on my Facebook page in response to one of Prime Stage’s posts about the ghostly sounds depicted in A Knavish Piece of Mystery, and he dropped by the show to share the tale.

You can hear that story as well as the latest installment of A Knavish Piece by clicking the link below. Or, if you’re new to the series, by accessing the full episode directory here.

Either way, we’ll meet you there!
