The voice actors, who also co-write the show, feel like they’ve been acting and working together for years, so your always happy to be taken along for a paranormal ride with them.

    Superstition is a southwestern gothic mystery audio drama about a private eye, a bartender, a cop, a missing girl, an old mystery and one very spooky town in Arizona.

    I can remember gearing up for the release of this show and how excited I was. The premise alone had me totally hooked. And that killer logo. The music for the show sets the scene so well. With each episode you’re completely enveloped by the atmosphere. And the diverse cast do such a great job of portraying fascinating characters. And there’s just something about Jack St. James and her attitude to everything that makes me just love her.

    The part of Monica is performed by Georgia Mckenzie.

    Episode 45 - The Glass Appeal

    Episode 45 - The Glass Appeal

    Jason Cawfield, known as the global tinker, has been imprisoned in the Confederacy Supermax Prison for a crime he claims he didn’t commit. He’s a tinker, a biohacker, and a part of Tinker International which is a volunteer organization that’s now associated with bio warfare.

    A show that was recommended to me by Hail and Well Met Podcasts, and was one of the last additions to this crossover season. It’s a great show that keeps you guessing over what will happen next, especially when you think you’ve got a good grasp on things. Engaging characters and an interesting world made it an easy choice when the creator inquired about doing a crossover.

    This episode was written by Elijah Gabriel and Alex C. Telander.

    Glamour spell gone wrong? Astral projection got you untethered? Want to know why your angry dead rich father is haunting you? Consider Kalila Stormfire’s Economical Magick Services. After a controversial fallout with her coven, Kalila Stormfire must juggle complex clients and an anonymous critic hellbent on besmirching her new business. The decaying urban block where Kal operates appreciates her affordable experience in a broad range of supernatural ailments and remedies. Still, Kal is not sure if her talent is enough to stop whoever has been posting bad reviews and persuading customers to cancel appointments. If you like stories about minority witches in modern-day working class neighborhoods, meddling love goddesses, and morally ambiguous spellcraft…this is the tale for you.

    I can remember hearing the first teasers and chatter about this show when the amazing Lisette Alvarez first announced it was being released. My initial thought was how a show like this hadn’t been done already, quickly followed by . . . I can’t wait to hear it! Every episode in its two seasons has been a delight, from the early days when we were just getting to know Kalila, to the expanding complex and diverse cast, to the growing and fascinating world. I continue to so look forward to hear where this story goes next.

    Episode 43 - The Bridge

    Episode 43 - The Bridge

    It's an alternate 2016, and Watchtower 10 sits in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean, keeping lonely watch over the Transcontinental Bridge. Each watchtower sits hundreds of feet away from the Bridge, broadcasting regular traffic reports to ensure that proper safety precautions are taken. These lighthouses (for cars) are filled with a carefully selected (and very capable) crew.

    Watchtower 10's necessary personnel happen to be: a generalist DJ who spends her free time relaying folklore from abandoned parts of the Bridge, her supervisor (who's only there because he lost a bet), an unfailingly optimistic Bridge Travel Agent, and a groundskeeper who has a thing for romantic comedies.

    Unbeknownst to the general public (but totally knownst to each watchtower's crew), these stations also hold a secret that could potentially destroy the world...or save it.

    The Bridge is a fictional serialized fantasy podcast about the monsters we fear, the monsters we can become, and the stories we leave behind.

    I can’t remember how I stumbled upon this amazing show, but as soon as I read the premise, I was already hooked. And then once I started listening I was even more drawn in by the interesting characters, the explored history and mythology of the world, as well as its complete unpredictability. I never know what’s going to happen next, but I know I very much want to know. If you haven’t listened to this show, do yourself a favor, and subscribe now.

    Episode 42 - Slumberland

    Episode 42 - Slumberland

    Slumberland invites your ears to visit Slumberland, a small island town in the US. Come along with Thomas Edward M, the freelance soundman. He's been hired to meet the locals and record their oral histories for the town's time capsule. The unfolding history of the town mixes folklore, paranormal, mystery and humor.

    I had this podcast recommended to me a couple years ago and was delighted to find a lot to catch up on. It was the first show I listened to that had episodes on the shorter side and it did take me a little getting used. I marathoned it pretty quickly and now I avidly await each new episode and know it’s always going to be a delight. The creator does a great job of creating a whole unique world with this island and its strange and unusual characters, as well as taking listeners back into the past and how things came to be. I heartily recommend you start the show from the beginning, each episode is a little gem in this deep and wondrous jewelry box.
