The Best horror fiction podcast (and publisher)
Pseudopod has consistently put out high quality performances (not just readings) of classic, published, and unpublished horror fiction for a decade and half. At this point, they're in the running for one of the most consistently great publishers (let alone podcasts) of horror fiction currently operating. If you like horror, or even just well performed fiction in general, you can't go wrong.
Le cadavre exquis of the mind is a terrible thing ...
Pseudopod lives (it's ALIVE!!!) in the continuum of media exploration of horror as that which is not borne of some external force or entity, e.g., the creature in the crypt, aliens from distant galaxies, exiled nether-region demon revenants for vengeance. In the words of The Stranger from 'High Plains Drifter', "It's what people know about themselves inside that makes 'em afraid." True horror gestates within; it is us.
Your Audio Horror Fix
The best horror fiction podcast, seriously shivers for your ears, with excellent audio production and thoughtful and careful curating. If you want horror and thiking about horror and deeper conversation about what horror is and could be, it's here. I think I'm in love.
