Lorrie Mae's Music ,

New to your show!

And I’ve got to say it…. You’re my new fav! The calming voice and scary stories is a perfect balance! Yup, I’m gonna be busy for a while ☺️

A Ehling ,

❤️❤️❤️❤️

Love this podcast! Great format. So many interesting stories.

SteeleFireImpact ,

Awesome show but…

So this show is incredible. The show production is amazing. Everything from the phone calls, to actual news reports and news clips that he plays, to the music is spot on. My only complaint is he sometimes sounds like he is struggling to maintain a Christian Bale Batman Voice, and he reads his sentences like William Shatner, “I am going to share this with you…here. Now let’s get…right to it.” Other than that the show is amazing.
