Macabre history

The podcaster draws on urban legends and folklore to make a chilling atmosphere right from the start. But the main part of the episodes is just as spellbinding and makes history come alive with in-depth information told so well that it doesn't feel dry at all. The non-supernatural themed murder episodes are a little gory, but they're really intriguing mysteries that linger -- and not just in the "that was gross" way.

One of my favorite podcasts

This podcast is wonderful. She always chooses extremely interesting topics that are very well researched. I love that she takes the time to explain things, and also that she’s sensitive to things that are potentially overwhelming. As much as I love horror, I get really upset when people talk about things like lobotomy or child torture and murder in gory and extensive detail; so I appreciate that she always warns us ahead of time and doesn’t go into extreme detail about those sorts of things.

Keep up the great work!
