Don’t Split Up is a horror film podcast for horror film lovers by horror film lovers (well, three of us anyway). Stacey, Mo, Amanda and JR. tread (mostly) fearlessly where few other podcasts dare! From the latest spine-tingling thriller to classic monster movie throwbacks, our terrified gang dives in deep to figure out exactly what scares us, and why we love it so much.

Welcome to the inaugural season of Don't Split Up! Join Stacey, Mo, Amanda and JR. as we (mostly) fearlessly brave the latest AND greatest horror films. Each month, we'll discuss one new film and one classic.
Meet the Hosts
Stacey Silverii currently lives in Dayton, OH, but not for long! She’s moving to Columbus to attend the Ohio State University, where she’ll study Environment and Natural Resources. Stacey is a huge nature and animal lover, and a proud Dobie mom. (For the uninitiated, that means she owns a Doberman.) In addition to horror, Stacey loves science fiction and fantasy, and admits to being a fan of historical dramas and period pieces.
Mo resides in Columbus, OH in his very own haunted house! However, the source of his nightmares comes from the never-ending to-do list associated with the 140-year-old home he started renovating last year. When he isn’t working on that, which is often, he can typically be found lost in a fantasy book or off procrastinating on other projects. The starter of many stories and finisher of none, Mo is the Shaggy of our Mystery Gang. Listen as Stacey and JR. drag him into terror, kicking and screaming!
Amanda currently resides in Dallas, Texas with her esposo, JR. Her favorite things include speaking Spanish, spending quality time with friends or future friends, thrifting, eating delicious cuisine from all over the world, getting lost in a book, traveling, watching movies, and spontaneous adventures. This is Amanda’s debut into the podcasting world, and as you will discover she is by far the biggest chicken in the group. She may have a tough and laid back outer-shell but deep down even the dumbest movies give her nightmares. It is like a train wreck, you just cannot look away. You can connect with her on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.
JR. lives in Dallas, TX with his wife Amanda. He’s a writer, blogger and pastor (in the Church of the Nazarene). He also loves Batman, spirited debates and smoking meats. Check out his blog for his sermon podcast. In addition to Don’t Split Up!, JR. also cohosts the StoryMen (history, theology and pop culture), Origami Elephants (religion, philosophy and current events) and Bible Bites (education and theology). He also blogs on faith and pop culture right here on NorvilleRogers.com. Follow him on Twitter or say Hi on Facebook.
