    Tales for Adults - The Empty House

    Tales for Adults - The Empty House

    We are kicking off the spooky season with something pretty creepy, so I urge only adult listeners to proceed!

Exceptional

Love Joe from beginning to, well, when I inevitably fall asleep. I’d love to see more of a selection for adults that aren’t scary/spooky/creepy, but the stories for everyone are great and aside from that single gripe this podcast earns five stars from a very picky sleep/podcast listener!

Reading

I love a well done reading, not too fast, not too slow. Pronunciation was perfect and so was the inflection. It was a pleasure to listen to
