An evening treat

My new cold/dark/winter evening thing is to stick a lamp on or sit in front of the fire and listen to Scary Stories. Each story finds its root in an urban myth or half truth and so they are infinitely believable. Episode length is pretty bang I’d say giving the host 25 minutes or so to persuade us of the merits of each story, it’s up to us to decide what we believe.

The production value is high and I enjoy the eerie atmosphere of the soft acoustic music layered beneath each word.

Oh and most importantly - the host has a voice that could charm the birds from the trees. Soothing, clear and would be something of a lullaby were it not for the dark source material. The whisper makes the experience very intimate - like being sat in a church confessional.

Beware - if you are gullible this may cause you to question many life choices. You might not leave your house for a week!
