    Nine To Midnight

    On the eve of Halloween, nine storytellers make their way to an abandoned asylum to share their terrifying truths about the darkness that exists around them. As the tales unfold, each more visceral than the last, the nine may just discover that it is not the waking world to fear, but the horrors that lay within.

ARG sci-fi with an earnest protagonist

I appreciate the self aware world building and I am always looking forward to new episodes. The character development is something else.

horror narrative

came for the thrills stayed for the chills
great story, amazing sound design and some really intriguing writing. like you know how stephen king/joe hill/william blatty and the rest of those goons always take care to build the story/characters up to the actual spooky stuff while dovetailing some greater metaphor/theme into the action? well imo woe.begone does that better than most audio dramas/books ive listened to and still manages to get in its share of scares, highly recommened

Absolutely addictive

From the very beginning, I’ve been hooked on this podcast. It’s so impressive that one person makes all aspects of this. Mike Walters is an absolutely insufferable protagonist, and for that I love him. I can’t get enough of where he’s going with this - and the show ramps up… FAST. If you like horror and sci fi, I highly recommend.
