Creepy as F***

Not a huge pcast listener myself but, interested in the subject matter, I binged 1-5 on release day. Mostly I sat there & nodded my head, feeling like they did a better-than-competent job of recreating life in a 1960s mental ward and occasionally making the skin crawl. But by the time we got to episodes 4 and 5, my jaw started to drop. Let's just say they went somewhere, um... unexpected. They can't possibly deliver the goods in the remaining episodes but I know one thing, I'll be tuning in to find out.

I’m Hooked!

This podcast grabbed me right from the start. It begins with a mystery, and has a creepy tension that grows by the episode. I’m already about to run out of shows. Don’t leave me hanging!
