My Favorite Horror/Bizarre Fiction Podcast

If you like Nocturnal Transmissions, Pseudopod, or Campfire Radio Theater then this is the podcast for you. I found this show by accident while searching for something else and I was hooked immediately. I love the music and the humor and the whole vibe of the show really makes the bizarre horror stories that much more unexpected and intense. This show keeps you slightly off-balance in a way that would be nauseating if you had no trust in the creators. Listening to this show is like standing shoulder to shoulder with lifelong friends, kicking rocks into the throat of the abyss.
So so SO GOOD! Please give us more!
