{Scary’s Voices} Sound Bites: This weeks recommended horror podcasts.

Scary’s Voices – Sound Bites

Week Ending 11th March 2021

Welcome to back 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.

My Scream of the Week goes to:


GraveYard Tales

Thanks again to Isaac Thorne, a fantastic horror writer with excellent taste in podcasts, I listened to a terrific show called GraveYard Tales. In it hosts Adam and Matt talk about cryptids, paranormal encounters, and everything else weird in our world.

First, I went through Episode 140 discussing an interesting link between the Roswell UFO Incident and Japanese Fu-Go balloon bombs. I’ve heard a lot of theories about Roswell through the years, but this one was new to me, and it was fascinating.

Then, I scrolled through more of their content and decided to check out Episode 138 about two strange cryptids in Ohio. The hosts discuss sightings of the Loveland Frogman and the Ohio Grassman, offering possible explanations for misidentified animals, as well as talking about witness statements that seem credible.

Besides dispensing interesting facts, Matt and Adam inject a lot of humour, making this show entertaining and educational. Episodes are typically 1.5 hours and are also presented as videos on YouTube with closed captioning available. And if you want to fall down the oddity rabbit hole further, research links are included in the show notes.

Shiver-Worthy Runner-Up:

It Came From…

One of my favourite blogs (besides Kendall Reviews, of course!) is It Came From… and when I saw its creator David Weiner started a podcast with the same name, I had to check it out. Focused on 70s and 80s nostalgia and pop-culture within all realms of weird, this is the perfect show for fans of horror, fantasy, and science fiction to take a trip down memory lane.

This podcast only began a short while ago, but so far some of the subjects have been the ritual of Saturday morning cartoons, Ray Harryhausen’s stop-motion creatures, and Ralph Bakshi’s animated The Lord of The Rings. With David Weiner’s background as former executive editor of Famous Monsters of Filmland magazine, as well as writer/director/producer of the documentary In Search of Darkness and its sequel, to name just a few, this new podcast is sure to become a favourite for genre fans.

So far, all episodes of It Came From… have been 10 minutes or less, making them perfect for a quick work break. I also highly recommend checking out Weiner’s blog, which was recently nominated for the Rondo Awards 2020 Best Blog, and contains film reviews, interviews with movie professionals, and lots of other good stuff. Both the podcast and blog articles can be found on It Came From… www.itcamefromblog.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’m looking forward to presenting you with even more Scary’s Voices next Friday.
