'A Scottish Podcast' is a serialised modern audio drama. It chronicles the story of Lee, a washed up former radio DJ who launches a paranormal investigation podcast. Lee wants to see his show The Terror Files mentioned up there alongside podcasts like The Black Tapes, Limetown, and The Message. And he’ll stop at nothing to achieve it. Aided by his jaded musician pal Dougie, the pair travel the length and breadth of the country in search of Medieval Demon Kings and Lovecraftian Gods of the Sea. So why not join them on this unique tour of the ancient and mystical lands of Scotland? You’ll walk through the long-forgotten catacombs under Edinburgh. Sail out to the lonely and abandoned island of St.Caillic. Visit dingy pubs, run-down industrial estates, and obscure non-league football grounds. The show contains strong language, “adult situations” (whatever that means), and isn’t for the easily offended.

Refreshing and Addictive
Mathew and Robert, once again you mates show us the amazing fun time that creative, dramatic podcasting can be for the listener as well as the producers. You gents are an inspiration to those of us just beginning our own journey into audio drama. And, it was delightful to find genuinely funny moments, genuinely thrilling and creepy moments, all tied together with a brilliant plot and solid writing. A Scottish Podcast is simply entertaining and addictive!
A life changing adventure
It was a blindingly sunny day, 100+ degrees and 100% humidity in March. (MARCH!!) I was on my way home after a long day at work, thinking about mortality, how awful life can be, pondering "feeding the pig" so to speak, when I remembered that a coworker at the call center suggested these blokes called the "Terror Files".
As I sat down in my sun-bleached car, skin sticking to the crusted leather interior, burning at the touch of the black plastic wheel, air-conditioning neither truly dead nor truly alive, I took a few extra moments before pulling out of the parking lot to download the first few episodes. "What the heck" I remember thinking... And as I pulled into bumper-to-bumper traffic, the show began.
Holy flapjacks, what a show it is! What a goddarn masterpiece of perfection! These guys, who are apparently a huge international hit were masters of their craft, even before they made it. Forget the Black Tapes, forget the Ghost Hunters, don't even get me started about the ghost busters(!), Terror Files are the best ghost hunting group ever! Their show, which is 100% real, despite folks claiming that they're not actually from Scotland (which they are indeed from Scotland) is the audio equivalent of snorting an aerosolized Jack Daniels while simultaneously skiing down Mount Everest and fighting a bear with a lightsaber!
They will take you places, scary places! I'm not talking about sci-fi worlds with cannibals and fictional Tales of fictional crud in Towers, or even historical goddarn fiction about time travel or westerns, i'm talking about the darkest corners of the actual Earth; places where the sun don't shine and the moon is even a little reluctant to show half it's a** on a good night! This show is gripping, epic, fear-inspiring! These are not the Small Town Horrors you and your granny grew up with, these are terrors like Alpin the mother-loving Disemboweler, and creepy islands with horrors too messed up to even mention in this review!!! Not to mention whatever the hell they have planned for Season 2!
This show has changed my LIFE! It helped me get a promotion, it's how I met my wife (a fellow terror files enthusiast), and bought a new car and house! It will leave you Sleepless, entertain you, inspire you, and help you find the courage to get through your own bleak existence knowing that somewhere out there in Scotland there's a dog that looks like the flipping guy from the Life Aquatic!
From their charming patron Bruce (who the local papers seem to have it out for, but who seems like a great guy), to Lee and even Douggie, the show's cast show great humility, despite being international super-stars. Here's to hoping they continue to make more stories now that their first season has concluded and don't fall into the trappings the celebrity status brings! Do yourself a favor and listen to this show today!
...Also, they have a great choice in sponsors... According to a friend...
Amazing and hilarious
After being let down by the Black Tapes, and having studied in Glasgow for a year, this podcast has become my new favorite thing. Great writing and acting, funny and charming.
