Where You Been All My Life🪓?

I came so close to bypassing this podcast completely, just cuz I thought it was yet another “let’s watch horror movie then talk about it while we’re pi**ed” series and I just can’t take them anymore.

But THIS... well, THIS kind of podcast actually makes all that wading through the alcoholic and the banal actually WORTH it. Lovely original works of HORROR fiction, usually 30mins or longer. No fan of dark humor, or straight-up creepy stories can really ask for more.
(P.S. - if you’ve managed to find THIS, please try another rare-as-heck original horror anthology called “The Night Bulletin”. Like Knifepoint Horror, all the stories are by the same author and I absolutely loved it; definitely deserves a wider look from the horror community!)

Spooky fun!

This is the perfect podcast for B-horror movie fans! Radio drama style podcast telling original scary stories - some of them are silly, but that's what's so fun about B-horror movies! LOVE the recurring characters!
