The Possibility Club podcast provides bite-sized audio glimpses into the minds of the people changing the world.
Richard Freeman’s special guest this week is Greg Day.
For 20 years, Greg was a man of the stage, an acclaimed playwright and radio dramatist whose dark comedies and studies on sexuality and power were a feature of London’s growing fringe scene.
At the same time, he was building his craft as a publicist and PR man in television, with senior communications roles at – the then new – Channel 4 and Channel 5 UK TV networks.
More recently, Greg’s has trained as a psychotherapist and broadened his PR work to help high profile entertainers to tell their stories – from illusionist Derren Brown to Hollywood hardman Michael Madsen.
In 2006, Greg joined the board of Frightfest, the UK’s largest international genre film festival and one of the world’s biggest celebrations of horror and fantasy cinema – taking place every August bank holiday weekend in London.
Richard spoke to Greg in Spring 2018, and they explored the enormous impact and growth of FrightFest and the unending appeal of horror as a lens for story-telling and spectacle. They talk about who it’s for, why people love it so much and who decides if something is just too scary for the festival to screen.
This podcast was presented by Richard Freeman for always possible.
