Promises of bone-chilling content FULFILLED!

The production quality of the NoSleep podcast is literally some of the best around! The acting, the stories, the horror... I just can't! The mood of this podcast is everything that it promises and there's a good reason why it's got such high ratings, a strong fan base, and longevity! Tune in to see why!

Embrace the magic

The OG horror podcast

SuperchickMG ,

Great!! 😁

I just started listening, but it’s pretty good so far! I’m impressed!! And I’m seriously considering buying season passes. Actually, I’ve pretty much made my mind up to buy them. {as a side note, normally I ABHOR the advertisements and skip right past them, but the Nature Box advertisement that you guys did is great! I lmbo!! I actually rewound so that I could listen to it. No! My spleen!!💀🤣} I’ve seen where some reviewers have said that the earliest seasons are the best. I haven’t started season 15 yet, but I actually think that the podcast has gotten better as the years have progressed. I started listening at SE9 & went backwards {I’m at SE3 now} and honestly, I think that the more recent seasons that I’ve listened to are better. To each their own, I guess lolol. {ps I Love most of the regular contributors on the podcast, but ....{and I’m sure that they’ve heard this before lol} I Really Love Peter Lewis’s and Nikolle Doolin’s voices!😍} *******UPDATE******* TO OTHER CERTAIN REVIEWERS - - THIS IS *NOT* THE PLACE FOR YOUR RACISM AND HOMOPHOBIA!!!! IF U DON’T LIKE IT, THEN DON’T LISTEN!! THERE IS *NO* NEED FOR YOU TO LEAVE HATEFUL COMMENTS!! GO. AWAY. *******UPDATE #2******* I just finished the season 10 Valentine’s Bonus Episode. I had to come back to say that that was one of the most beautiful stories that I have ever heard / read. Seriously .... it brought tears to my eyes. Thank you Jesse Clark. ❤️🥰💕😍Amazing job!! ************UPDATE #3************** I’m up to season 13 now, & the stories in this season (se13) just aren’t as good. I’ve read other reviews saying as much, but until I got to this season, I didn’t get it ~ but NOW I do. Several of the stories that they’ve chosen to perform for se13 are just awful. They are nowhere near the quality of stories that I’ve come to expect & love from the NoSleep Podcast. Some of them end ridiculously, & some just don’t make sense. Like, at all. They’re downright terrible compared to the earlier season’s episodes. I’m very disappointed in them. Season 15 ep 2 — I’m sorry but I have to say this: •••••Danielle Mccrae’s narration & pronunciation is VERY VERY VERY!! hard to listen to!! {& you know EXACTLY WHY!!!!!**}
