Who are we?? And more importantly: What does “Desde Abajo” Mean??
“Desde Abajo” (pronounced “Des-Deh Ah-Bah-Ho”) can be roughly translated from Spanish as “From the bottom” or “From below” and we use that term as a play on words in several instances thru the podcast.
Since we started as a horror film-related podcast back in 2009, we used the term “Desde Abajo” (From Below) as the place where our worst nightmares and fears come from; The deepest and lowest parts of our conscience and soul (and from below the apparently calm surface we show every day).
As we love to support indie films and productions, we also use the term “Desde Abajo” (From The Bottom) as a slogan between ourselves on the podcast (and our listeners) that states that in our quest for success, no matter how far we get, or how high we rise, we must never forget our origins, in other words that we (and most of the people we admire) started from the bottom.
Even though we started as a podcast where we talked to the Spanish-Speaking community about Horror films both old and new, we soon began mixing it with other genres such as Sci-fi and Fantasy, while dabbling in other media like comics, novels, tv series, anime, manga, theater and more.
And now, since we love conventions and started to being accepted as “Press” we decided to expand our content to the English-Speaking community too.. So we apologize for the inconvenience, ha-ha…
(Seriously though, please forgive the occasional grammatical errors… Or in many cases, grammatical HORRORS)
