We are SO happy to announce the creation of the brand new Anatomy of a Scream Pod Squad Network, a podcast feed dedicated to inclusive horror content presented in delicious limited series, bite-sized morsels.
Aiming for an October 2020 launch, the AOAS Pod Squad feed will consist of a rotating selection of podcasts from diverse creators, running between 3–12 episodes each. There will always be something new, interesting, and spooky on the feed!
And even more big news: right now, we are seeking pitches from enthusiastic creators who identify as female, BIPOC, LGBTQ2I+, and/or members of the disability community!
Never made a podcast before? Have a great idea but don’t have the slightest inkling where to start? Need a helping hand to make your dream pod a reality?
Don’t worry—we’ve got you!
This is a space for new podcasters to cut their teeth on unique concepts that lend themselves to limited series, leveraging the marketing and hosting prowess of the Anatomy of a Scream team. You’ll be supported in the following ways:

- We promote your podcast across our socials
- You’ll be matched with a Mentor from our Podcast Team who will coach you through the process, based on your specific strengths and needs
- You’ll be given a Beginners Guide packed with info about buying equipment on a budget, sourcing legal, licence- and royalty-free music, and the best free program to use for creating beautiful show art
- You’ll have access to our design team who can create original show art at a discounted rate and our first round of podcasts will have the opportunity to have FREE custom podcast themes created for them by our music supervisor!
- You’ll be invited to the private AOAS Pod Squad Facebook group, where you’ll find technical resources, how-to guides, tons of encouragement, and the opportunity to network and collaborate with other Pod Squad members
