We are at the time of the year when the air turns crisp, the leaves change color, crock pots become the cooking vessel of choice, and the veil between the living and the dead is at its thinnest.
Like us, if you are really into the season then grab your Buderflys or your favorite pair of earbuds or wireless headphones, put on a light jacket, maybe a scarf, and take a long walk through an overgrown cemetery or explore that abandoned house at the edge of town where ghosts are seen in the windows and listen to these five horror podcasts.
The Grave Plot Podcast
If you love horror, then this is the podcast for you. Hosts Tony and Taylor come at you every two weeks with stories of Real World Horror, the latest news in the business, and reviews of horror films. This is a podcast we never miss, especially when we crave stories that raise our hackles. Even cooler, hearing about the yearly film festival in Seattle they host every February. Get your fright on and listen here.
Host Aaron Mahnke sometimes take you on an adventure with ghosts or other things of the paranormal, but he addresses some of the worst kinds of monsters throughout history, man. Aaron ventures through some of history’s most unknown dark secrets and some you might know but didn’t know all the info for. Sign up for the Dark Arts 101 as truth can be more frightening than fiction and listen here.
Do you like stories of haunted houses? This dark podcast mixes real paranormal stories with true crime. Hosts Alyssa and Hadley weave fascinating tales of the grimmer side of the haunted house genre. Be scared and listen here.
Yes, this is another one by Mahnke, but it dives into a single story and that is serialized over multiple episodes. The first season tells the story of The Salem Witch Trials. Spoiler Alert! Interestingly, one of our team’s 8th great grandfather gets mentioned quite a few times. Time for a hanging, anyone? Listen here.
The Last Podcast on the Left
Let’s end things on a bit of a lighter note. The subject matter isn’t really all that light, but the guys who tell it are. The Last Podcast on the Left tells stories of the macabre and the occult. The stories come from best friends, who are also comedians. This podcast will make you laugh, cry, and have nightmares both funny and terrifying. Listen here.
