There are nine days to go until all hallows ‘eve and no doubt you’ve been celebrating all things spooky since October began. We here at Podern Times are no different. Well okay, maybe a little, as the picture below states “Horror is for life, not just for Halloween” and this is pretty much our mantra.
As we’re a brand new publication we thought what better way to introduce the team here at Podern Times than by sharing some of our favorite spine-chilling podcasts with you all.
Take a coven of witches, add a vampire or two, and a sprinkling of werewolf, and then add a huge dollop of zombies to the pot and simmer for twenty minutes.
This is usually enough to get most folk either running for the hills, or their pitchforks and flaming torches. Not me. I’m reaching for the popcorn, because quite frankly it ain’t scary.
No. What scares me is a huge bag of realism and psychological horror. Take ‘Silence of the Lambs’, ‘Se7en’, ‘Saw’, or ‘The Shining,’ these are the stories that get the blood flowing so to speak. And for me, cults are a biggie!
Imagine if M. Night Shyamalan had written ‘The Village’ more Manson family than the Waltons, and added a little ‘Inception’ to the pot, then you will have some idea of what ‘Tribulation’ is like.
Stacy Carlson employs the help of a conspiracy theorist to find her missing husband Greg as the authorities don’t believe her account of how he disappeared on their trip home from a visit to her parents.
Did you enjoy Tribulation as much as I did? Are you looking forward to a season two? What are your favorite spooktacular podcasts? Feel free to share your thoughts in the comments below.
Check back in two days for another showcase from another member of the team!
Since falling in love with podcasts back in 2015 Dōhai decided to begin writing on the subject. He soon found himself trying his hand at acting, (Black Bart in The Drift and Ramble Podcast), and more recently writing, with (Diary of a Madman season 2) Set for launch Oct 31st, 2018.
