In celebration of Knott's Scary Farm's 50th Anniversary, our own Nick Pagliochini from "This Weekend, with Nick Pagliochini" and "Later, with Mo'Kelly" here on KFI has created a podcast series in partnership with Knott's Berry Farm and Cedar Fair Entertainment. The 2023 season of Scary Farm runs from Thursday, 21 Sept 2023, through Nick's birthday - Tuesday, 31 October 2023.
Each week of the event, a new episode will be available highlighting a one-on-one interview with one of the "movers and 'boneshakers'" behind this screaming success!
This first installment features Chris Do - Entertainment Producer with Knott's Berry Farm, and a look at #ScaryFarm50 and the event as a whole for this season.
This second installment features Jeff Tucker - Show Director with Knott's Berry Farm, who joined the team at the Farm in 1994, and has a special affinity for, and unique perspective on #ScaryFarm50 - where it's been, and where it's at all these years later.
This third installment features Josh Mikkelsen - Entertainment & Project Specialist with Knott's Berry Farm, who joined the team at the Farm as a jester and knight well over 20 years ago in the original iteration of "The Gauntlet," a true fan favorite scare zone that gets new life, or death as it were, breathed into it for the 50th. Josh walks us through how childhood trauma can lead to deliciously dark but immensely rewarding activities in adulthood, how a background in Hollywood behind the scenes can lead to some incredible adventures and experiences at a theme park, and how you can join the ranks of the undead mischief-makers at Knott's Scary Farm.
This fourth installment features "Pasta" Rago Berkey - Entertainment & Project Specialist with Knott's Berry Farm, who brings a feminine touch to the world of scare actors "...into the fog..." at Scary Farm. She shares her experiences through the years and what she's looking for in the next generation of these talented individuals who are the heart, blood, guts, and soul of Knott's Scary Farm.
