The Mysterious Old Radio Listening Society Podcast revisits the great horror and suspense shows from the golden age of radio, including tales from Suspense, Lights Out Everybody, The Witch’s Tale, The Shadow, and more. Each episode features a classic, or maybe-not-so classic story from the scary old-time radio vault, complete with historical notes and nerdy trivia.

Love your show! I was introduced to old time radio through your podcast and listen every episode. It’s always enjoyable and was wondering if you are planning on doing anymore episodes by Black Mass?
Don’t know which I enjoy more - the radio show or the conversation following! I listen at work and have laughed aloud many a time! Thank you guys for such an entertaining way to spend an hour!!
