I really enjoy the author’s who’ve been featured so far. Great writing. The host has good ear for interesting stories especially ones with unexpected endings. Love this show!
Love so far!
I’m a huge fan of NoSleep and I’m always trying to find more similar podcasts to binge. Luckily I stumbled upon this one and it’s great! I’ve only listened to a few episodes, but so far the stories are really good and the narrators are decent. Definitely give it a go if you like the creepy stories and plus it supports black authors and talent!
Very unique writing
I’ve been listening on Spotify for a couple weeks now, and it’s super good. The stories are all written very uniquely, and they reflect modern themes in a really effective and hard-hitting way. It’s really cool to see such varied styles of writing, and it’s even cooler to support black authors and creators.
