About this Episode

We're pretty sure most people have figured out what the focus of this week's episode is. It's about the FearVR story and, to be frank, we don't have any good answers here. Still, we talk at great length about the story and how our industry made international news. 
But that's not to say that there isn't other news to cover. We have a similar story from Home Depot and a potentially offensive prop there, Five Nights at Freddy's has a new haunted attraction and several other haunts are opening their doors this year following years of struggle.
But as many haunts open, we want to offer our thoughts and condolences to those impacted by flooding in Iowa, including the good people at Panic Park in Cedar Falls. We hope you are able to return next year and really scare the pants off of everyone.
