Keep it spooky review (guess the twist while reading)

We were traveling along an old country two lane road. When I realized I took a wrong turn or something because I was not where I was supposed to be. No big deal I will just turn us around. It was then that things went from bad to worse. It was just supposed to be a road trip with my podcaster friends. While trying to turn the car around it slowly sputtered 2 a complete stop. Wait maybe our luck is about to change! Here comes a tow truck. I didn’t even get a chance to call someone. We are saved! An old beat up tow truck with an old bearded man driving looked out from the driver side window. “Hey there youngens” he said creepily. “Need a ride back into town? I am listening to Ruined!” “The jeepers creepers episode!” “Its awesome!!!!” It has come to the point of the episode where we ask… What would you do?……. Well my podcaster friends Bethany and Kathleen from An Aquired taste podcast love Ruined of course we would like a ride!! He hooked up our car to the truck, and we climbed inside and he started driving. Now it is time to ask who will survive?!!!!! Rawky(the story teller),Bethany, Kathleen, no one, or all? Ok good great guess. So the old man returned them to town. They got gas at the gas station and drove off. Everyone lived happily ever after! Old man tow truck drivers aren’t all bad! Things worked out great! Just then I jolted awake. It was a dream! I don’t really know my podcaster friends except from the show. I tried to move… why can’t I move? My hands they’re tied to the bed?! The bed. It’s not my bed… where am I? “Hello young en” a familiar voice…. The driver! It wasn’t a dream?! What is happening? “Thanks for listening to The Ruined podcast when I found you.” I enjoy this show.” “For ideas.” The driver said. I saw he had something in his hands but I couldn’t tell what…. As he lifted it and lowered it crashing toward me I thought….. the end

Spooky Review for A Spooky Show

I’ve come across two women by chance and my world is changed. Lovely voices telling me stories, lulling me to slumber filled with cervid carcasses and haunted spaceships. We have so much in common. I feel like I’ve known them my whole life. Perhaps I have.

I feel like I was there in the room with her as her mother glanced in after a drunken night and she didn’t see-didn’t notice that I was there too.

They don’t know me they don’t see me but I know them and I listen to their words every day. I am absolutely ruined.

Allison, Halle-never stop. You don’t know me but I am with you-just there in the dark listening and waiting.

My favorite podcast!

I love this podcast so much. I am a huge horror fan and have seen all these films already but I can’t get enough of Halle breaking them down and Alison’s reactions. Always funny and also informative. Their live show was so much fun too and I really hope they do more. It’s a podcast but also feels like a little Horror community of like minded individuals has been built! Thank you Alison and Halle for being a bright spot during these hard times.
