The Canadian Haunted Attraction Conference & the Scary North with Matthew Flagler

Canadian Haunted Attraction ConferenceIn Episode 40 of HaunTopic Radio we get Matthew Flagler on the mic to educate us on what really goes on in the Canadian Haunted Attraction Industry and other scary things north of the border. Matthew is the man behind the Canadian Haunted Attraction Conference which takes place on April 12-14 in Hamilton, Ontario. If you operate a haunted attraction, work at a seasonal event, are a horror/paranormal/Halloween fanatic, or an FX artist then this event is for you.

Me & Darryl (also a Canadian)  get Matthew to open up about his Halloween childhood, what really goes on at the Canadian border, and what is Matthew Flagler really scared of? We also release the names of the two winners of our monthly prize give away: 2 Large Bottles of Bloody Mary Spray Blood
