Truly chilling and well written

Love this podcast, can’t wait for more episodes. It’s rare to find good horror podcasts that aren’t cheaply written or performed or just lame shock factor. Easily ranks with other great horror podcasts like knifepoint horror and sibling horror. Thank you!

It’s rare to find stories that are written this well!

I’m always happy to see a new episode in my feed! I’m even happier when it is read by Peter Yearsley. I love his voice and delivery and it’s a perfect complement to the nuanced writing!
