Ever since Judith’s lifelong best friend, Claire Sterback, inherited a house from a biological family she never knew, things have begun to change. Claire has begun to change. It isn’t just that the house is full of cryptic notebooks, ominous scribblings on the wall, and has a basement that is colder than it should be. It isn’t just that Claire abruptly up and left her live-in boyfriend and is now being stalked by a psychopathic realtor. Claire is… off. As she gets closer to a secret at the heart of the old house in the Toronto neighbourhood of Parkdale, she is also getting closer to losing herself. After Claire goes missing - with the help of co-worker-turned-friend-Owen - Judith vies to track her down, even if it means diving into a history that may have been better left untouched.

    Hello my darlings! I’m so glad you’re reading this. Today we’re going to discuss being positive when life doesn’t go our way. We try to stay positive here in our household. Life in the house is good, it’s so good. Everything is good, and if you say any differently, the only thing left for you to do is suffer.

    15: REFLUX

    There’s nothing like an old friend coming around for an unexpected visit, especially when all the doors are locked, and you’re not at home. Can’t say it’s something that Judith and Owen appreciate much, but maybe that’s just them. Meanwhile, Judith can feel another relationship starting to spiral out of control.

    16: ACQUIESCE

    Owen and Judith engage in some espionage in a bid to see what Claire and Adam are like in public, calling in a favour with a rich frenemy. What could go wrong at a fancy party? Hang on, I’m getting a note that says “lots of things.” So, lots of things could go wrong. Whoops.

Loving it!

I listen to this podcast while painting and it never disappoints ☺️ I love each of the characters and their banter! This show is just the right amount of scary, fun, and relatable! I highly recommend it! Personally, as long as there are episodes, this is where I’ll be😃

I tried…

I really tried to like it but halfway into episode 7, I just couldn’t anymore. The voice acting isn’t the greatest and the 2 main characters kinda sound the same which makes it hard to keep up with who is who. After 6 1/2 episodes of scary things happening to them and finding out the history of the house you would think they’d stop being so, “it was probably a raccoon or a draft in the house” about everything. If you’re talking about killing people and speaking in other languages, maybe it’s not just stress?

Incredible!

This podcast RULES. I just finished the last episode and I kinda wish I’d found it later down the line so that the third season would already be available. The acting is fantastic, and the sound design is downright chilling. It’s such a complete world. I listen to a lot of horror podcasts, and very few have made me turn the lights on when I’m alone, and this one has a couple of moments where I had to. Love everything about it. Can’t wait for more!
