Just when I think I have found the prefect podcast for creative,touching, scary, haunting, mind pictures easily imaged by the voice actors , a long comes this site. 5 is not enough stars. 10 out of 10 in every part of the shows offered to us. My favorite by far. having listened every night for over a year to other good podcast, then finding this great creative podcast is truly my secret gem. I jealously share my find in this review with others, just to good to not gift to others.
Usually I’m a horror fan
But this podcast introduced a lot of weird fiction, sci-fi, dark fiction that I don’t normally consume, and it’s blend is always engaging.
Love this show!
The stories are always fun and interesting, the music is great, and I’m always surprised at the 100 word stories and how much they can convey in such few words. Norm and the others are great narrators and every now and then you get treated at the end of the episode with a song.
