Calm & Spooky

This show is a quick getaway with great reads to consider. An insightful host that asks the best questions of what she reads, Aurelien has a soothing and inviting demeanor. Highly recommend!

Hey, Adam Payne! ,

Solidarity In Weirdness

This podcast rules. I love that the hostesses cover things from horror to scifi and are open to any subject matter that leans weird or spooky. The conversational pacing and the fact that you can enjoy the hostesses are having fun and genuinely enjoy discussing the material make it listenable for all, and if I wanted to blow up their spot I’d recommend it to everyone... but as all witches know, if you’re not spooky you cannot sit with us.
