“Spread the Weird” sums it up nicely!

Do you have a podcast that makes you really happy, stoked and feeling good when it updates with a new episode? That’s what Drabblecast is for me. I will usually pause whatever I am doing in order to listen to this. Many of the stories are the type that burn into one’s brain and can be recalled weeks-years later. If that’s not enough, Norm Sherman has one of the most enjoyable voices I have ever heard. He is to story telling what Robert Plant is to rock music! The best of the best list!

On of the best audio fiction podcasts out there

It seems impossible that I have not written a review for this podcast yet since I’ve been a regular listener for years. However, here we are. I started getting into fiction podcasts around 2015-2016. Since then, I’ve gradually whittled down the number of podcasts I listen to on a regular basis, only focusing on the ones I really like. This podcast always makes the cut. The stories are always bizarre, occasionally funny, occasionally thought provoking, occasionally gory, and always interesting. If that sounds like something you would be interested in, give it a listen. And please consider becoming a Patreon member so this podcast can continue doing its thing for many years to come.
