Grab your climbing gear and prepare for your next great adventure - reaching the summit of the brand new episode of The Monster Hunters!
We apologise that it's taken a little longer than planned to get this episode to you, but we hope you think it's worth the wait. We've scaled new heights to bring you an adventure a little out of the ordinary - one that takes our heroes to the Roof of the World!
"The majority of the episode is set on Mount Everest," says Peter Davis. "It's one of the most dangerous places on earth and people go there every year as a challenge or just for fun. I've been obsessed by Everest for many years and the idea of a natural feature as an antagonist to our heroes was too good to pass up."
"Peter did his homework on this one. The challenges we endure in the story are all things you would actually face scaling that mountain." says Matthew Woodcock. 'Recording it was quite taxing as well. There were a few occaisions when we were actually out of breath!"
"There's also a not-so-subtle homage to the movie An American Werewolf in London in the episode." Davis continues. "It's one of my all time favourite movies, and in my opinion the best example of comedy horror in film - genuinely funny and genuinely scary. We recorded this the film's 35th anniversary year, so why not pay tribute to it in The Monster Hunters?"
We're also pleased to have on board David Knight, who podcast listeners will have heard as 'David Knight' in MarsCorp and as 'David' in The Bunker, two fine podcasts from Definitely Human. What will be his name and what links him to the Monster Hunters? You can find out more about MarsCorp here.
This is also the first part of an epic two part story. Return here soon for part three, we'd tell you the title but it would ruin the surprise!
