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.
