Cool Finds: Spooky Podcasts

I am a big fan of the podcasting format. I have a fairly tedious job so being able to listen while I work or travel is my favourite way to learn or be entertained.

So I thought I would present to you some seasonally appropriate creepy podcasts to listen to.

Welcome To Nightvale

This was kind of ground zero for the fiction podcast boom. A story about a small desert town where every conspiracy theory is true, all told through the local radio station.

Creepy, disturbing, hilarious, experimental and underneath all of that it is hope-filled and life-affirming. It’s one of the best podcasts out there.


Based on an old internet urban legend about and old arcade videogame with numerous creepy elements and rumors.
This short-run story deals with a team of journalists who finds someone who claims to have encountered the arcade box in his past. However, nothing is as it seems.
CW: this deals with topics of addiction and sexual abuse

Bone and Sickle

An informative yet atmospheric podcast exploring all the dark and spooky folk customs and lore from history. Each episode is framed with a small fictional sketch about the narrator before delving into each episodes topic.

Strange Familiars

This is a show exploring modern cryptids and other stange paranormal phenomina, a good and interesting listen even if you take a skeptical view of whats being reported.


Do you have any spooky or creepy podcasts you like to listen to? I’m a bit of a podcast addict and would love to have any more recomendations, so please feel free to leave your suggestions in the comments bellow!
