Why We Love to be Scared, with Jordan Peele
The world is filled with some scary shit, UFO spy balloons keep popping up in our neighborhoods, we’re on the brink of World War 3, and Doomsday seems to be right around the corner. So why the hell do we CHOOSE to be scared over and over again when real life is scary enough? Think about it, horror movies, true crime podcasts, roller coasters, the list is endless for ways we LOVE to be scared, but why do we put ourselves through this? This week I am joined by my good friend and Oscar winner, Jordan Peele, who definitely knows a thing or two about scaring audiences. We get into our biggest fears, why we love the horror genre, and what he has cooking next, which I’m sure none of us will be able to say Nope to (see what I did there?). Maybe listen to this episode during the daytime with your lights on because baby, it’s about to get Spooky Ookie!
