Amazing work

You guys put so much work into bringing these spooky stories to life. All of these stories are amazing listens (if I can muster the bravery, hehe). I may end up a little spooked but isn’t that the best part? Great work to all of you guys and I am always excited to see what the next theme is, it’s always fun to see your creativities in action. (Btw my favorite episode was Moonlight Flight and I wish to see more episodes like it in the future)

Amazing work to all of you at Fireside Mystery Theater! Keep it up and, as always, mind the shadows
