Usually I’m a horror fan

But this podcast introduced a lot of weird fiction, sci-fi, dark fiction that I don’t normally consume, and it’s blend is always engaging.

You got me

Been listening for a while, and I just subscribed. This show is not for everyone, but I enjoy Norm Sherman’s sometimes bizarre ranting intros. Stories are definitely weird, eclectic, erratic, and even hit-or-miss, but a few have stuck with me for months. I give it five raised tentacles for me, four on my review because your mileage may vary. If you’re reading this, try it!

Been slipping for years.

I’ll say it if nobody else will, the focus on female writers has dropped the quality of the stories significantly. I’m rapidly losing interest.
