This is podcasting done for love

I discovered the Weird Tales podcast when searching for a full reading of a story I had heard discussed on another show. There it was, read well and completely. I started listening and have loved it ever since.

This is amateur podcasting in the best sense, podcasting done for the love of it (Lat *amare*, to love). I like the absence of slick studio production and love the blooper bits at the end of each story. I have discovered many stories on this show, and experienced in full others I'd only heard about. The kicker for me was this year's marathon project of reading William Hope Hodgson's *The House on the Borderland*, a novel I would have never read on my own. I would not say it's a "good" novel, though there are wonderful elements to it. But I'm immensely grateful to Tycho for bringing me through it.

Quality readings with an always interesting variety

I’m genuinely really glad I found this show! While the production isn’t always as smooth as it could be, it’s not the kind of project that really requires a glossy finish. It’s just a guy reading a story, sometimes simplicity is better.

The host has a good voice and is overall very solid in his reading. Occasionally he may stumble over a word or phrase and it takes me out of the story just a bit, but again, it’s not like there’s a whole team of professionals producing this. If that’s the biggest complaint I can think of for this podcast, then I’d certainly happy with it! Personally, I prefer a solid and straight reading of a horror/weird fiction story over the types you’re more likely to find on Youtube for example. The kind that try a little too hard on the production, and where the hosts tend to put on an exaggerated “creepy” voice for the narration. This show is the opposite of that kind of faux-quality in the best way.

It’s been nice to be able to listen to a well-read story when I otherwise may not be able to sit down and read a book. On top of that, the variety of authors covered by the host has lead me to discover new writers I love, which I likely wouldn’t have found on my own otherwise.
