Hey friends! Shitty days we live in right now. I’ve seen far too many zombie and end of days movies for today’s times to sit right with me. I’ve read far too many books to not see the red flags. Anyone else getting uncomfortable out there ? I sure am.
Let’s talk a bit. Use the forum to let me and other readers know how you’re feeling. What are your thoughts and how are you keeping sane right now? Kids at home? How are they dealing with things?
I know it’s a bit tough out there, food seems to be scarce, but they say it’s not....? Essentials limited but again being told they’re not. Workers risking their lives to stock shelves, doctors and nurses dying along with the sick. Essential workers not being paid enough.
Cabin fever at home, couples working at home, trying to teach kids and hold conference calls. Trying to get through each day without losing your shit, or yelling at someone. Trying not to drink too much or eat too much, whatever the struggle may be, it’s all too much right now.
Quite frankly, I’m sick of it. I’m an introvert. Hate crowds, hate the mall, don’t like attention but right now, all I want is my mom to hug and lunch at a crowded Olive Garden.
What one thing do you want right now ?
So my dear friends, since no one is talking yet, another favorite podcast of mine is “Creepy” produced by Jon Grilz.
It’s a great collection of stories and creepy pastas found on Reddit and each one will give you the chills, goosebumps or at least the “WTF” face. The stories run from 5 minutes to sometimes 40 minutes long.
Jon does a great job narrating them and works with a great cast of fellow narrators and voice actors from other pod casts. He also works closely with the SCP podcast, another great horror podcast that takes on an intriguing mystery aspect by creating stories that are told from a classified file perspective.
Both “Creepy” and the “SCP Archives” were created by The Bloody Disgusting Podcast network.
You can find both of these podcasts on ITunes and support both at Patreon. Both have several tiers of support that offer some nice rewards. Check them out and let me know what you think.
Several years ago, I stumbled across a horror podcast called "The NoSleep" podcast, which is produced by David Cummings. I have spent countless late nights in my bed, listening to this fantastic team of voice actors give amazing performances of so many creepy and horrifying tales. You can listen free to the first hour or so of the show, usually 2-3 stories, which runs about an hour and 10 minutes on average. For a small price, you can become a season pass holder and listen to the full episodes which run between two and two and a half hours. They are currently on Season 13 and the pass is $24.99. Each season is 25 Episodes, with 3 bonus episodes. This is a full production company, with actors, editors, and their own music composer. I highly recommend this podcast to anyone that loves the dark and uncomfortable things in life. Next on my list is Soren Narnia and his podcast, "Knifepoint Horror". This podcast is a much more intimate experience. Picture an old friend that drops by on his travels, you greet him with a cup of hot tea, guide him to your roaring fire and ask him what's new. He sips his tea first, thoughtfully, and levels his gaze into the roaring blaze. You sit back, and he begins his story. This is Knifepoint Horror, this is an old friend that we let in our home and sit enthralled as his mellow voice weaves tales of the unexplained, the weird, the dark and disturbing things that he has encountered on his travels. He takes you with him, on his journey, you can feel yourself immersed in the tale, scarcely daring to breathe while he describes the feeling of terror that crept slowly up his spine as he watched the unthinkable, the unimaginable, unfold. Just my feelings of course, but I absolutely love this podcast. Soren is also the author for most of the stories told on the podcast, as well as a published author on Amazon. I was lucky enough to just win a giveaway that he hosted on the podcast and received a copy of his latest book, "Town with a Tranquil Name". I'll share a review of that book a bit later on next month, as we are currently sharing podcasts stories. "Knifepoint Horror" does not appear as regular as "The NoSleep" podcast does, but if you are new to this podcast, there are plenty of stories out there to keep you intrigued. You can also support Soren on Patreon for $3.00 per future episode. Small price indeed for the amazing skills of this storyteller.
