Totally saving me from boredom during Corona
I love the spooky stories and the host’s voice is perfect for a good ghostly tale. Keeps me on the edge of my seat and coming back for more. Thank you for the wonderful distractions 😀

Normally, I love this podcast and listen to another podcast by the same host. However, the attempt at what I’m assuming is an “American” accent by Alastair throughout this episode was too distracting. It’s like a caricature. I couldn’t finish the episode.
This is a great podcast, I love listening to the stories and to Alastair’s voice and beautiful accent. Can’t get enough please keep them coming.
