    "When the Signal Ends"

    "When the Signal Ends"

    I'm sure everybody will be checking their phones after they listen to this creepy story. Rebecca Linam's "When the Signal Ends" is narrated by Jimmy Cooper, a college student at William & Mary, who was advised by Professor Elizabeth Wiley, a professional audiobook narrator. Happy Halloween!

    "Solid"

    "Solid"

    It's October which means it's scary story time! Listen to Colleen make her narratorial debut for Trista Hurley-Waxali's "Solid." We're hoping she wrote it as an absurd humor piece and not on a day when she was mad at her boss...

    "Cranes Equal Life"

    "Cranes Equal Life"

    We've been talking Lisa Heidle up for weeks now it seems and her story "Cranes Equal Life" does not disappoint. Saying too much about the story would ruin the fun, but be sure to stick with this one. Note: there was some recording interference around minute 20 or so, it only lasts a few seconds and hopefully you can figure out what I'm trying to say from context.

    "Black Jacket Mafia"

    "Black Jacket Mafia"

    Justin Voelzke's "Black Jacket Mafia" isn't your typical mafia story - I don't think anybody says "Badda Bing!" even once...although Colleen does threaten to leave a horse head in someone's bed. Slow down and listen up!
