Too Real

Spooky, and chilling tales that I quite literally believe really happened! The host does an excellent job of taking the listeners on a journey of scary that’ll have you coming back for more!

NotBAMF ,

Great info and easy to get lost in

Having these short episodes makes it so darn easy to tell yourself “oh, I will listen to one more”, and then before you know it, you are four shows deep. Stephanie also has a great voice to keep your attention and obviously puts a lot of research into her work!

Ewy1347 ,

Outstanding!

I thought she did amazing. The topic of murders and conspiracies isn’t my cup of tea, but I came across this randomly and gave it a try and I don’t know about the whole genre still, but I like the authors way of presenting the info and she has a good speaking voice!
