    Does anyone have any suggestions for GOD horror podcasts? I drive A LOT, and when I have to do a long distance car delivery, I listen to podcasts. So let's hear it, SSO. I liked the black tapes up through the first and second seasons, Limetown has been ok so far. I've been listening to knifepointe horror, but I really want a linear narrative, not just an anthology, so any recommendations?

    (Yes, I hated how they ended black tapes as well.)

    I started Black Tapes, but I got real sick of the Dr. and his smug disposition of 'I know everything and nothing you say can shock me.' Its like Sherlock Holmes or Tony Stark for the horror-verse.

    Does that ever change or is it worth leaving unfinished?

    I always hated that as well. A ghost could be slapping his face with their junk and he'd be all: "No, it's apophenia." and the ending is terrible. Everyone hates it. Literally everyone. I haven't seen a good review.

    Spooked from Snap Judgement, excellent series. I wish there were more of it.

    Unrelated to your question, How Did This Get Made is the best podcast ever. Not horror, but a lot of cross over if you like shitty horror movies.

    I need to check these out. I've really wanted to start my own horror podcast, but I asked a bunch of friends and coworkers about voice-acting for it and no one was interested, and I think it'd just be totally stupid to move forward with only my own god-awful voice-acting.

    I've been a huge fan of old-time radio programmes like Quiet, Please and Lights Out since ~1997. In 2015, I released an album of music exclusively inspired/based off of Quiet, Please broadcasts. I came across a few remakes of the old shows on podcasts going back ten years or so, but most of them seem to be defunct now.

    If you're willing to push the boundaries a bit more, check out Sword and Scale. It falls more into the true crime category. Some of the stories are truly disturbing enough to catch a horror fans attention. I recently started listening to Sword and Scale due to a co-workers recommendation. The first episode they started me off with hit a point where I was honestly very uncomfortable with what I was listening to, which was largely due to how well the story was told. Some of the music and sound effects are really bad. Try not to let that discourage you.

    Disclaimer: A quick reddit search the other day made me realize half of the interwebz does not approve of the guy who runs Sword and Scale. I do not approve/disprove/care/not care. What matters is that the production of the stories are very well done, at least what I've listened to so far.
