Stop Urban Legends please

I enjoy your haunted places but I can’t listen to urban legends- too scary because they could be in our neighborhood. Put them in their own podcast please! I may have to unsubscribe...

Awesome-O

Love this podcast. Very well written and researched with a fantastic narrator. Listen to it. You’ll dig it. If you don’t, you’re dead inside. Mostly.
