Good Stuff!! 🤌🏻

Started this podcast from episode one about a year and a half ago and I’ve been hooked ever since. Just got done with Sleepless Decompositions #9 and I’m 8 episodes away from being completely caught up! Keep up the great work guys. Love all the horror stories that you dish out!

my dinosden ,

Totally thrilled

This podcast is great! I am a new listener and I’m addicted! Keep up the good work 🤩my

Eclipse920 ,

Oops. I didn’t rate this. I swore I did.

I thought I did this a long time ago. I’ve been a listener for years, starting when I used to drive my husband to his traveling lineman gig. Sometimes 8 hours one way and then again to pick him up from his hotel a week later to spend the weekend with him.

These narrators have filled many nights of mine driving the Highways of rural Tennessee, Kentucky, West Virginia and Ohio and kept it spooky enough to keep myself awake. I was a huge reader of the Reddit sub by the same name and loved listening through each season after I discovered the podcast. I really want to buy season passes but I’m never able to afford it. The stories on the free version are great but I’ve caught up now and would love to go round again with the season pass stories. I do tend to like the older stories a bit better. Not sure why. Could be nostalgia.

Thank you all at no sleep and keep doing what you are doing. I’ll get that season pass at some point lol. And don’t mind the bigots that seem to have infiltrated our horror genre and leave bad reviews. They are cowards and hate change (nothing is changing even. We just admit people different than us exist know instead of pretending otherwise). The only “agenda” going on is being realistic and inclusive of people that before, we played pretend with and acted like they weren’t there.
