    Story Summary:
    Earth has long since crumbled, and Cora resides on Sulfur Planet with other poverty-stricken humans who must work in the dangerous mines before they can earn passage to a safer planet. Haunted by her past mistakes, she’ll discover something brewing beneath the planet’s acid lake, something that offers a chance for both atonement and evolution…

    Warning: The Wicked Library is a horror fiction podcast created for a mature audience. Our stories contain graphic descriptions of pain, murder, violence, blood, betrayal, and inhumanity; monsters win, people die, and hope is often shattered. There is also beauty, heart, catharsis, and raw emotion. Fear may be deeply personal, but we all share it.

    If at any time a story takes you to a place too dark, turn on the lights, press pause, or press stop. And always remember, that unlike in the real world, these nightmares, and your participation in them, are under your control.

    For centuries Aina’s people have harvested the Dream Root to cultivate the health of their planet, but Aina is now occupied by the enemy Reptilian race, searching for a cure to the mysterious fungus plaguing their people.

    The Reptilians believe the Dream Root is the cure they’ve been seeking. They’ve enslaved the Ainan people, destroying the wild growing Dream Root and forcing the Ainans to farm the root indoors for the Reptilians’ scientific experiments.

    Ammalynn, a young teenage Ainan, possesses a powerful gift that could be her people’s salvation, but if Ammalynn uses her gift, she will be forced to make a great sacrifice. Will Aina survive? What will Ammalynn choose?

For those who enjoy horror stories

A good podcast for people who enjoy other podcasts like tales to terrify and no sleep. Audio is great and it's also well edited. A pleasure to listen. Sometimes the interviews can be a bit tedious, though
