The idea and initiation of MACABRECAST was created by Hope "Havoc" in late August of 2015. Her inspiration for starting the podcast came from a love and appreciation of other podcasts. Hope is an avid podcast listener of shows of all types and genres such as: The Movie Crypt, Faculty of Horror, Girls in the Back Row, WTF with Marc Maron, Doug Loves Movies, SawBones, I Was There Too, and many others. She gives the most credit for her motivation and inspiration to KEVIN SMITH and the SMODCAST NETWORK. Since the start of her podcasting journey she has had the oportunity to meet many interesting people and guest on shows such as This Is Rad in LA with Kyle Clark, Faster Than the World with Ryan Pangilinan, Fanboy Radio (KTCU), and Do You Know Who You Are with Eric Grubbs. Mk Northum of Tyler, TX is the contributing graphic artist and occasional co-host. MACABRECAST is all about meeting new people, especially local creatives with inspirational stories. Hope and MK also enjoy recording episodes based on TV, film, books, comics, music, and more. Within one year of starting her podcast, Hope was able to land a booth at Texas Frightmare Weekend 2017. She hopes to continue setting goals and achieving them and would like to thank her family, friends, and fiance Eric for supporting her in her passions. Hope believes in what Kevin Smith once said "Don't say you want to be something, just be it ( as long are you aren't harming anyone)."
