    Vol 95 - Masks II + Interview W/ David Viergutz
    Editorial by Luke Kondor (https://www.lukekondor.com)

    Special feature
    Interview by Daniel Willcocks (https://www.danielwillcocks.com/)
    With David Viergutz (https://davidviergutz.com/)
    David Viergutz is a disabled Army veteran, a law enforcement veteran, a husband and a proud father. He's also a storyteller, an author of thrillers and horror novels that will keep you on the edge of your seat. As a teenager, David would often be found dragging a backpack full of books to class, leaving his textbooks behind. He was always captivated by the worlds that authors like Nix, Tolkien, King and Patterson created, and he dreamed of one day creating his own.Years went by and David found himself serving his country in the military, and later in law enforcement. The experiences he had during those years were both thrilling and terrifying, and they left a deep impression on him.
    One day his wife sat him down and gave him the confidence he needed to start putting his imagination on paper. From then on, his creativity knew no bounds and he poured his heart and soul into his writing. Now, David weaves tales of pulse-pounding realism and nightmare-inducing horror where his years in uniform have given him an unparalleled understanding of the criminal mind. Take the plunge and start reading David’s thrilling crime novels and terrifying horror adventures.

The other story’s

Great show!

ataxia_panic ,

Amazing and inspiring

I just got into podcasts and tried a few. I’m not into hearing people just talk about their opinions or current events so many were rejected. Then I found this beauty. I love the stories and how much it gets me writing my own again. I love the story tellers and how they relay the stories. I listen to at least one a day and plan on catching up. This is my favorite podcast and I can’t wait to check out their other stuff in the vault.

Loganfool ,

Very enjoyable

I give this an A+ for sound effects. They’re not overpowering but timely and fun. They’re like a comic book.

The Toy Factory….. WOW!
