You know Halloween is still in the air, because the candy corn hasn’t run out. For this Very Special Halloween episode, we have a Very Special Guest Host, Josh Zagoren. Adam Guerino claims Halloween is the new gay holiday. Aemilia Scott manages to occupy the ridiculousness that is the media coverage of Occupy Wall Street. Finally, we have music from Fatbook, which Christopher is very sad he missed. And as usual, if you can hear this, this magazine is LIVE. Download at iTunes here, or listen below.

At this Saturday’s show at the Horseshoe, it’ll be Herman Cain, Herman Cain, Herman Cain. And another Cain; we’ll be joined by Cayne Collier of the group Brick; Chad the Bird aka Josh Zagoren of Crash Pad; Neo-Futurists’ Diana Slickman and Rachel Claff; Jessica Palmerof Gapers Block and writer Samantha Irby. With music by Sol Diego and the Metronomes. Check The Paper Machete‘s site for the updates on this line-up as the week goes on.
