    Autumnal Extra #1 - The Adventure of the German Student by Washington Irving (2nd Anniversary Bonus Episode)

    *Headphones are encouraged, but headphone users should also Beware...*
    The 1st of our Autumnal Extras is a story featuring a well-known trope in Horror Fiction that you'll undoubtedly recognize as the narrative unfolds. You're also sure to be familiar with the author of tonight's timeless tale, given that his name is regularly whispered on the crisp winds of this Spooky Season; of course, we refer to one, Washington Irivng. "The Adventure of the German Student" is the tale we will weave for you on this All Hallows' evening.
    Special Thank You to artist, Anna Podratsky [@apod.art on Instagram] for the Amazing Autumnal Extras cover art

    To Know Where You're Going, You Must Know Where You've Been (Women in Horror/Black History Month Special) [Bonus Episode #2]

    To Know Where You're Going, You Must Know Where You've Been (Women in Horror/Black History Month Special) [Bonus Episode #2]

    *Headphones are strongly encouraged, but headphone users should also Beware...*

    *This episode is marked as explicit; it contains material with themes/language which may be "triggering" or upsetting to some. Listener discretion is advised*



    It's an honor to bring you the 8th production to emanate from "The Theater of the Afterlife"! We are between seasons, but this is a special Bonus Episode, our 2nd for you, GLT Trivia Buffs out there. This episode is in honor of both, Black History Month & Women in Horror Month, which were both in February; however, we experienced a delay or two and the episode was not complete until now, so it is also in honor Women's History Month, seeing as our 1st story is an original short story by, the 1st female author in our show's short history so far; however, we guarantee that it shall NOT be the last! Besides, we should all celebrate Black Individuals & Women, in and out of the Arts, every single month of the year.

    We are proud to feature an imaginative & fun -- for all but our friend, Mark -- short story, entitled: Pew Pew by the talented, Aigner Loren Wilson (@frekihowl on Instagram; www.aignerlwilson.com); this story is the 1st in a Trilogy (followed by Bang Bang & Boom), so visit her website & follow her to stay up to date with her future works and to find out how you can read, or possibly hear, this story's conclusion.

    Our 2nd story is a relatively short excerpt from the Classic play turned motion picture: Ma Rainey's Black Bottom, written by the Late, Great, Legendary August Wilson. If you are not familiar with him and his other scripts, such as: Fences, The Piano Lesson, and Joe Turner's Come & Gone, to name a few, then we are thrilled to be the 1st to introduce you to such a trailblazing figure. The original play script can be read in full here: https://augustwilsonstudygroup.files.wordpress.com/2018/02/ma-rainey-_1_.pdf

    Welcome Dearest Friends, new & old! We have an extra magical, extra spooky Holiday Special in 2 parts for you all this festive season.

    The GLT's A Christmas Carol (Part 1) [2020 Holiday Special - Episode #5]

    *Headphones are strongly encouraged; immersive surround sound audio effects in use throughout, but headphone users should also Beware...*

    You are seated in an auditorium of indeterminate size; the walls extending into blackness, the ceiling shrouded by the darkness as well...the murmurs of the faceless audience members around you has reached its peak, but is beginning to subside...the lights are dimming, leaving only a solitary, brightly glowing bulb dangling from a string above center stage...its dim but powerful light scatters shifting shadows around the entire theater...the shadows appear to culminate on stage, encircling the light, and just as it extinguishes, you catch a fleeting glimpse of the figure of a smiling man beneath it, and you realize, for the 1st time, that you are in The Ghost Light Theater.

    Don't Tell Me...It's Our Anniversary (OTR Reincarnated) [Episode #4]

    Don't Tell Me...It's Our Anniversary (OTR Reincarnated) [Episode #4]

    *Headphones are encouraged, but headphone users should also Beware...*

    You are seated in an auditorium of indeterminate size; the walls extending into blackness, the ceiling shrouded by the darkness as well...the murmurs of the faceless audience members around you has reached its peak, but is beginning to subside...the lights are dimming, leaving only a solitary, brightly glowing bulb dangling from a string above center stage...its dim but powerful light scatters shifting shadows around the entire theater...the shadows appear to culminate on stage, encircling the light, and just as it extinguishes, you catch a fleeting glimpse of the figure of a smiling man beneath it, and you realize, for the 1st time, that you are in The Ghost Light Theater.

    Hello Dear Friends, the great mahogany doors of "The Theater of the Afterlife" are open once again, beckoning you to join us & allow us to take you on another excursion into the darkest reaches of your imagination. Tonight, we give you the 2nd episode to feature a "Reincarnated" script from an Old Time Radio program. Not only that, but November 1st, 2020 (All Saints Day) marked one year since The GLT Podcast 1st 'Poe-miered'. Although this episode is a few weeks after the fact -- listen to the episode, and our illustrious, haunting Host will explain why -- it is still in celebration of that milestone! We hope you have enjoyed our 1st year of productions, and can't wait to share even more stories with you all.

    This All Hallows' Eve, or rather, "All 'Givings Eve" is a tale of love, betrayal, and magic. "Don't Tell Me About Halloween" was originally heard on the OTR show, Quiet Please, and our production features a guest artist: Dana Noel as Candace. And a Special Thank You to artist, ClovenCraft (@clovencrafted on Instagram) for this episode's incredible Cover Art.

    A Few Minutes of Fright for a Dark Night (Mini-)[Bonus Episode #1]

    *Headphones are encouraged, but headphone users should also Beware...*

    Welcome Back to our humble, little Theater of Shadows! We're sure that you've noticed that this performance is billed as a "Mini-Episode", as well as our 1st Bonus Episode! We are diligently delving into the deep, dark recesses of the Speculative Fiction genre in order to bring you the highest quality, and, not to mention, the Spookiest show possible. We didn't want the pages of the 7th calendar month to flip by without providing you some sort of satisfyingly, albeit rather succinct, Haunting Horror...

    The story presented for your listening pleasure here tonight is a short story by writer, Keith S and it's titled: I See You. You can read this short story for yourself at the following link: https://vocal.media/authors/keith-s

Hungry for more

The complexity and range of this mans voice is other worldly, just like his stories. And the dialogue, is equally as captivating and smooth as his deliberate delivery of each word. Before you know it you’ll be completely entranced, hungry for more!

Yo comprendo español ,

Amazing!!

This man is a master storyteller. He is vocally versatile and talented! His level of skill is incredible!
