Raymond the host is great!

Definitely worth subscribing to if you like the genre (as I do)... the audio is always good, and the stories and characters are always colorful! Go ahead..... binge-listen to all the Inner sanctum goodness!

This. Is. Awesome.

I am so glad to have found this collection in iTunes, and want to thank the person that put these up. I used to listen to the CBS Radio Mystery Theatre on road trips with my family in the 90s...so great to hear that series' somewhat official precursor. THANK YOU!

Some episodes...

are difficult to listen to because of the poor audio quality of the old recordings. It's not the podcaster's fault.
