Scary’s Voices: Sound Bites for January 28th.

Welcome back to Sound Bites where I highlight the best horror podcasts I’ve heard through the week. If you’re looking for content to haunt your earbuds, these podcasts are just what you need.

Welcome back to Sound Bites where I highlight the best horror podcasts I’ve heard through the week. If you’re looking for content to haunt your earbuds, these podcasts are just what you need.

Now normally I serve up a double helping of scary options, but sometimes I get so absorbed into a show and binge past episodes that I realise I’ve only listened to one podcast in the entire week. That’s exactly what happened when I discovered the Redwood Bureau, part of the Eeriecast Network.

The podcast reminded me of shows like The X-Files and The Outer Limits, but offers up stories that are uniquely terrifying.

Every other Tuesday, Agent Conroy discloses information about horrifying creatures that have been captured by his former employer, the Redwood Bureau. He believes the public has the right to know about the supernatural entities which inhabit our world, and does his best to offer tips to survive encounters if you should ever be so unlucky.

So far cases have uncovered phenomena involving otherworldly roadkill, trickster encounters in the Ozarks, malicious software programs, and even a sinister occurrence within the Paris Catacombs. In each instance Agent Conroy discloses what he’s learned about a particular paranormal secret kept by the Redwood Bureau and then plays the audio accounts of witnesses.

I’ve been completely hooked by each of the 5 episodes that have been released so far and cannot wait to hear more. Josh Tomar hosts the show as the voice of Agent Conroy, and the stories have been written by talented folks such as Charlie Davenport, Darkness Prevails, and Steven Bassile. What I enjoy most is that these stories twist familiar scares into terrors beyond my imagination.

And for having me hang on every word of every case, Redwood Bureau most definitely deserves to be named my unchallenged Scream of the Week.

Episodes have an average runtime of 30 minutes, and can be found on most podcast platforms, or use the links on the Eeriecast Network website www.eeriecast.com

That’s a wrap for this week’s Sound Bites!

As always, thanks so much to the awesome podcast listeners and creators who have been sending me terrific recommendations. Keep them coming via the comments section below, or direct messaging on Twitter or Instagram (links below). I can’t promise I’ll enjoy every podcast you throw my way, but I’ll give everyone a fair shot.

Remember, I’m all about scary things and spooky podcasts are what I’m after. Content focused on reviewing horror movies and horror books, true paranormal encounters, facts about cryptids, true crimes, and original scary stories are exactly what I want to hear.

Can’t wait to listen to all the dark podcasts you fine fiends suggest, and I hope you’ll join me next Friday for more Sound Bites.
