Chicken soup for the dark night of the soul.

A hidden gem of the iTunes podcast store. Veteran actor and heir apparent to the throne of Vincent Price and Boris Karloff, Bill Oberst Jr. does far more than just read spooky stories. He invites you on a thoughtful, dark journey with warmth and sophistication. There's really no one else like him in the current audio sphere. Do yourself a favor and subscribe.
