Excellent stories and fabulous narration.

My new fave pastime!

I can't get enough of these stories. I love how I'm learning about different traditions and folklore from the African diaspora, and some of the twists in these creepy stories! I'm a super-fan at this point.

Amazing podcast!

I’m so happy I found this podcast! I don’t remember how but I’m not going to question it. The host is amazing and the stories, while some may not be to my preference, are still all amazing. I have never not finished an episode, nor have I left disappointed. I especially love that episodes sometimes include an interview with the author. I now have a long recommendation list that I can’t wait to go through. If you love even some horror and are looking to find amazing black authors, then look no further!

If you’re not into horror, no worries, this podcast is not for you and that’s ok. If you are racist or simply don’t want to recognize that black writers are not represented in most media, then move along and don’t bother submitting a 1-2 star rating.
