[AUDIODRAMA] Welcome to Aldergate University, a shadowy world of obsessive geniuses, masked strangers, hidden dangers, public nudity, and conspiracies that stretch across the centuries and around the globe. Aldergate's ancient walls hide many secrets, and Sir Adrian Ward - a fugitive billionaire with a dodgy brain and a troubled past - would like to hide as well. When an old pal's severed legs are found practically on his doorstep, however, it's clear his troubles may just be getting started...

Wonderful voice, great stories
It's difficult to create a compelling podcast with only one person speaking, but Adrian Ward is able to captivate my attention with that amazing voicework.
The stories are all classics as well, and there have been some that I'm not so familiar with but I'm glad to have them introduced to me. In addition, the sound quality is top notch and the production values are great as well.
A Classic Format in Podcast Form
I really like the concept, presenting classic horror stories in podcast form. Other reviewers who compare the host's voice to Vincent Price hit the nail on the head. This is definitely a throwback form of horror entertainment, and kind of brilliant to deliver it in this format. It's a very simple format that works, primarily because this guy nails the right voice for reading these kind of tales. Nice work!
What A Voice!
Adrian has such an amazing voice. As a camp counselor, I love sharing his podcast to the kids. The kids always want more after listening to each episode.
