Catching up

As of today 5/12/2021 I am at episode 70 and have been listening for three weeks. Will keep you posted. I enjoy how you have the time stamps so I can skip when I need to. Enjoy the storytelling and dumbstruck that I know of some of the narrators before they joined some of my other favorite podcasts.
Update: As of June 1st I am starting episode 180, I am sad to know that Larry has passed, and glad that his podcast is still kicking.
Update 2: July 1st finishing episode 366. Almost there, when I get caught up I will look into the Pateron.

Inspiration

I like to write when I have a moment, but it’s been a while since I’ve had time to really think about it. Tales to Terrify not only tells great stories, but gets my own twisted imagination going, too! It’s like the zombie apocalypse of story concepts! Now, where to begin...?

Audio Horror Excellence

This is a great podcast - a great selection of stories and voiced by talented actors. 5 Stars for sure.
