Waiting 4 More

Some of these scripts are just phenomenal.,, following a surreal labyrinthine path through darkness while also having realistic dialogues. Listen to Season 1, Episode 2 - “Girls Night Out” to start to get the idea. This is like no other horror podcast -

So if you like original “dark” podcasts like The Haunted Hour, Storage Papers, A Voice From Darkness, Magnus Archives, or Wrong Station - then definitely give Horror City Radio a listen. Wonderfully unique and offbeat.

Nostalgically Spooky

Horror City Radio is deliciously creepy. It mimics the nostalgically dated feel of radio that used to freak us out as kids.

The stories are wonderfully spooky, with that campy feel we expect from public radio. (Although, some of the stories are genuinely freaky, like the 1st on their pilot episode.)

I noticed a distinct audio improvement between the first and second episode. Obviously the actors and the media editor are just starting to show us their full potential.

I can't wait to listen to more.
