As production intern at WGBH's Under the Radar with Callie Crossley, I booked the guests, wrote the introduction script, and web post.
Boo! It’s Halloween season, which means that it's time to dress up in your favorite spooky getup. For local costume makers and sellers, Halloween is Christmas. Americans spent $9 billion on Halloween last year. But with last minute shoppers and online shopping websites creeping in, these local costumers have got a lot of blood, fangs, and skeletons to sell.
Guests: Eric Bornstein — Freelance mask and cosplay maker for the Somerville-based company Behind the Mask. Jeanne Keenan — Owner of the Costume Company, a Waltham-based theater costume store.
