Today’s Podcast Recommendation is another twofer…Creepy and The No Sleep Podcast
The reason I put these two together is that they’re similar in style. Sure they’re both scary, but they’re also anthologies of stories found on the internet, aka CreepyPastas.
Creepy is one I support on Patreon and I will say Jon Grilz (the host) is very generous and you get lots of perks for only a few dollars per month. But you can also listen for free on any podcast app.
Jon reads many of the stories, at least ones I’ve listened to (and I haven’t even scratched the surface, there are so many) in his soft but spooky voice. But in more recent episodes he has some guest readers as well.
Some of these stories are just silly and not written very well, but others will have you chilled to the bone.
Bonus: Jon Grilz is a Minnesotan!
Note: he previously had a podcast called Small Town Horror that was a serialized story about a man returning to his home after he and his sister had gone missing.
No Sleep Podcast has a bit more “production”, they have a showrunner and a ton of voice actors, producers, illustrators, and more.
Instead of readings, these are audio dramas. This started out as a Reddit forum but has grown into a full-blown production.
The host Jim Cummings is based in Toronto, Canada.
There are currently 15 seasons, each with 25 episodes, so you won’t run out of stories any time soon!
This one doesn’t just use Creepypastas, they accept (and pay for) quality written stories.
