Episode Description

This week on Kroll Call, it’s a Halloween spooktacular hosted by Dan J Kroll.

Richard Simms offers a look at some of the scariest television series and films of all-time. Were you afraid to take a shower after seeing Psycho? Did you avoid hockey games after seeing Friday the 13th? Did Ghostbusters put an end to adding marshmallows in your hot chocolate?

Then, you can’t talk about Halloween without discussing mummies… and coffins! Kara Cooney, an expert in Egyptology, discusses her new book THE WOMAN WHO WOULD BE KING: Hatshepsut’s Rise to Power in Ancient Egypt. And she scares up the details of her six-year study of… coffins!

Plus, ask any kid what Halloween is all about and they’ll undoubtedly say the candy. But where does that leave parents? Rummaging through Junior’s candy stash after he goes to bed to pick out all the good pieces? There’s none of that on Kroll Call. Listen in as Sheila G, the founder of Brownie Brittle, helps out with a fun and tasty trick-or-treat giveaway.
