My favorite podcast
I grew up watching some of the great horror hosts like Elvira and the late great Dr. Paul Bearer. I have always loved creepy stories and Halloween, so I was really stoked when I heard about this podcast. It is so fun to listen to! If you are a fan of Scary Stories to Tell in The Dark, The Twilight Zone, and The Outer Limits then I highly recommend you subscribe.
This show is so much fun - amazing atmospheric sounds, beautiful music (including from VIP guests on occasion), great sound mixing and narration, and excellent stories. Definitely something to listen to, especially if you are a fan of shows like the Twilight Zone or Beyond Limits.
If you want a scare, stop and listen.
Atmospheric, well told stories that’ll make the goosebumps rise on your skin. That shiver down your back. And that feeling that someone is standing right behind you.
