New podcast weblogStories have power. They inspire ideas by example, give insight through allegory, provoke change with satire.

But mostly, stories provide escape into entertainment.

​The 10 Minutes in the Dark podcast offers exactly that: a 10-minute departure from life, an opportunity to try on someone else's skin, a way to see the world through different eyes. Every other week, listen to a new story about someone not so different from you and me, a person who takes a step--or is pushed--out of the light and into the dark. Some of them will laugh, others will fight, a few will succumb.

​Listen to the latest episode to find out what happens. It will only take ten minutes.

Delightfully chilling

I love everything about this podcast. The stories themselves are excellent and the narration and production value are top notch. The first one is impressively spooky.
