Welcome to your deepest FEAR! Since humanity first gathered around a campfire, we’ve been sharing stories to freak each other out and spark the darker side of our imaginations. From the mysterious to the macabre, the supernatural to the supremely bizarre, our FEAR feed features similarly shocking tales, with new episodes dropping weekly, presented by Pun Bandhu.

At Realm, the joy of feeling creepy-crawlies tingle up your spine is never out of season, and our always-on chronicles of the ghostly, ghastly, grotesque and everything in between are sure to haunt your every step. So, keep that nightlight on, one eye open, and your head on a swivel because nowhere is safe when you’re immersed in FEAR.

This month, we'd like to present you with Spider King. After taking the rap for a crime he didn’t commit, Darnell makes a dangerous bargain to earn his freedom. But when he agrees to an experimental procedure, he has no idea of the horrific consequence: mutant spiders, escaping from his flesh.

Season 1 & 3 - Loved

Wasn’t a huge fan of seasons 2 & 4. Season 1 & 3 were bomb!

XLordVaderX ,

Good until round robin writing

Was a big fan of the series until the last 2 seasons. They have had multiple writers and each does their own episode but the story just falls flat. By the end of each story there is no cohesion. It feels like something kids would write. The endings are terrible I mean just Blech who cares see that the problem even if you have a couple good writers you have terrible writers that can ruin the story in one episode. I know one thing if they do another round robin writing I’ll be removing this from my library. Just terrible

Good podcast!

There are a lot of criticisms of this podcast and its many seasons, there are things I like and those I don’t, but there is also great writing, production and acting.

Don’t let the negative reviews stop you from enjoying really good stories. Season 4 in particular was one that I enjoyed a lot. is it perfect? No, but what is? Do not let a few things you don’t like stop you from a really good audio experience.

The voice actors are fantastic!
