BFMV92 ,

Awesome podcast

I like the fact that in between the story you give a background of the folklore to give us a better understanding!! Keep it up!

MoreBrandi ,

I’m waiting anxiously every week

Love the way you bring the story to life and together with history/legends and then weave it into the now!! Your talent is amazing and I love the way it’s narrated. I have issues with speech patterns and if it bothers me it doesn’t matter how much I love it I just can’t get into it. But this podcast is narrated and written beautifully and keeps me hanging on every word and not so patiently waiting for the next episode!

MiKrumm ,

At first I was not sure. But quickly it become one of my favorites.

When I first started listening to it I was a bit put off by the fictional story blended with folk lore information but after a few I realized I really like it. Part one of a horror story, then some of the myths and legends surrounding it followed by the second part of the horrors story and bands, movies and books about the creature being featured. Really like it. Going to listen to them all for sure.
