In honor of Halloween 2016, we've got Josh Lewis and Rob Haynes discussing their podcast, "Letters From Camp Blood". Each LFCB episode is dedicated to a "Friday the 13th" movie starting from the first and progressing through to the final episode which will cover the video games and other fringe media. Josh and Rob are comedians as well as old friends, and it doesn't get funnier than the dialog between them as they argue over some of the deeper elements of these classic films.
