Diary of a Madman
Continuing our Halloween countdown it would be remiss of me to not mention Diary of a Madman. (Warning: Contains gratuitous self promotion.)
As you are probably aware from my last post in the countdown you can throw all manner of ghosts, ghouls, and even a few killer clowns at me all day long and I wouldn’t bat an eyelid, but add a real world psychological twist to it and now you’ve got me.
Diary of a Madman follows the audio journal of a murderer. A unique insight into the rationale of a killer and his reasons for doing what seems abhorrent to us all. But is it? Abhorrent to us I mean. After all, we see it everywhere and yet we don’t seem to be up in arms about it. We shrug our collective shoulders and carry on with our daily grind until that is, it affects us or our immediate family.
Created by Paul Sating, the pen behind many other podcasts such as ‘Subject: Found’ and ‘Who Killed Julie?’, season one comes in the format of 24 short diary entries that average around 5-6 minutes, and is definitely one that sent chills down my spine.
It both chilled and inspired me to begin writing fiction, and when Paul asked me if I would like to write season two, I almost ripped off his arm and beat him to death with it I was that excited. (Luckily there’s a small body of water between us.)
If you haven’t had the pleasure of being chilled to the bone by the first season, then I suggest you go binge it now, because season two launches on Halloween!

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.
