The Fear is a podcast where funny people talk about the things that scare us. In each episode, comedy writer Sarah Morgan asks her guests to bring in three fears - a scary moment from film or tv; a fear from their childhood, and a fear or phobia they live with now. It's spooktacular...


The theme music and production is by Tim Bazell. Find us online @Thefearpodcast, and if you like it, tell your friends, or rate and review the show on Apple Podcasts, not that you will, 'cause you're a bunch of ungrateful goth hipsters who think they're too cool to live. (prove me wrong, kids!) 


This programme is a member of the Great Big Owl Network. (insert spooky owl noise here)
