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

Scary’s Voices – Sound Bites

Week Ending 9th April 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:

Slaughterhouse Stories

Recently I joined the Slasher app and met a new bunch of horror fans and creators, including Ghost Train, the podcast narrator of Slaughterhouse Stories. Offering a mix of creepypastas and short scary stories, this show is an excellent way to get your fill of spinetingling goodness.

I listened to quite a few episodes, and two of my favourite stories were “A Haunted Doll Story” by BlueHero45 in Episode 14 and “The Girl on West Calen” by Ghost Train in Episode 12. I’ve heard quite a few creepypastas through the years and many of them start to sound the same, but Slaughterhouse Stories selects tales that feel fresh and take unexpected turns. And to keep things exciting, each episode features a few different stories.

Another aspect of the show I really enjoy is a segment called “Open Mic Night at Beelzepub,” where horror poems are narrated. From classic Poe to new horror poets, the variety and narration are fantastic. It’s almost like you’re transported to a darkened coffee house, where you should snap your fingers instead of clapping at the end of the performance.

Each episode is about 30 minutes in length, with new content is uploaded every Saturday. Slaughterhouse Stories is available on most podcast platforms, as well as on YouTube with closed captioning. As Ghost Train says, “Be a listener, not a victim,” and find links to all episodes on Anchor Slaughterhouse Stories

Shiver-Worthy Runner-Up:

Not Another Horror Podcast

On Slasher I also found Not Another Horror Podcast, hosted by Anthony Rossetti. This show explores true and unsolved crimes, conspiracy theories, and urban legends, primarily from the southern United States.

Not Another Horror Podcast stands out for me because it covers weird tales I hadn’t heard of before, and for the few subjects I was familiar with, Rossetti added new and interesting details. From the 3 episodes focused on P.T. Barnum’s “Cabinet of Curiosities” to the creepiest tales from Las Vegas, the podcast delves into subjects sure to ignite your spooky imaginations. And if you’ve been feeling the itch to travel, the latest episode “The Big Lonely” which talks about strange disappearances along a stretch of Interstate 80, may convince you to stay home a little longer.

New episodes are uploaded every Thursday and range from a few minutes to half an hour. Not Another Horror Podcast is available on most podcast platforms, and be sure to check out the additional cool blog posts like “The Szondi Test” on their website www.notanotherhorrorpodcast.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.
