Creepy, yet soothing.

I love this podcast. It's well-researched, factual stories, but told in a more narrative style. Every episode is like a short book-on-tape. I also just love Richard Maclean Smith's speaking style--he maintains the creepy atmosphere, but his voice is so calm and measured. Playing an episode always makes me feel like I am driving on a beautiful backroad through a misty forest (which... is kind of a crazy thing to say, now that I see it typed out, but it's true).

Excellent, well-researched

As a real-life mysteries enthusiast, I can say that this show is an excellent exploration of truly strange events, grounded in thoughtful research and historical context. Mr. McLean Smith has a calm, pensive voice that lends itself to mystery without ever surrendering to the obviously unreal. He has also admirably covered one of my favorite mysteries, the Dyatlov Pass incident. With any luck, I’ll hear his calm voice narrating the Hinterkaifeck murders soon enough.

Well done

I am new to the world of unexplained things. These are well done stories with just the right amount of creepy atmosphere for me.
