Weird Stories Well Told
I really enjoy this one. The stories are interesting and the bit of wry humor is just right, making even familiar weirdness fun to listen to. I hope all’s well and more episodes appear soon! Meanwhile, I’ll binge on the backlist.
I love this podcast. The host does a wonderful job of researching the information for each episode. She has gone above and beyond with watching a video regarding cannibalism! Great job!
