We’ve dragged our good friend Brandon Grugle onto the show, to talk to him about his love of the supernatural, creepy long shadow fingers, “pleasure caves”, and a clawfoot tub FULL of pasta!


Content Warning: This episode contains conversations about or mentions of racism, death, suicide, ableism, murder, gun violence, domestic violence, and home invasion.



Brandon Grugle is the Head of Production at Multitude, as well as a composer and sound designer who's worked on podcasts for Marvel, Stranger Things, Netflix, Sony, Wondery, and Atypical Artists, among others. His work has been featured at the Tribeca Film Festival, in countless publications, and even on a Times Square billboard. He lives in Seattle, where he rooftop gardens and collects too much audio gear.
