    I was about to comment that it’d be nice to have an artwork even for these short episodes but after actually listening to these stories… Never mind xD

    The Pancake Family was the first story from Nosleep that’s ever made me feel physically ill. Like, goddamn. Both stories were amazing. If you were trying to convince people that don’t pay for the podcast to upgrade then consider me sold!

    I couldn’t help but notice how you guys have ‘trigger warnings’ & I respect you guys so much because of that. I love anything horror but being a victim of abuse somethings tend to get to me. And I just want to say thank you. Such an amazing podcast. Love you guys.

      I too have found them helpful. I haven’t suffered any kind of serious abuse, or any other trauma, but I have a far more active empathy center than I would like, so there’s certain subject material that I find upsetting. The inclusion of trigger warnings actually helped me build up a resistance to the especially unpleasant stuff, and since I started listening last year – I started at the beginning, and binged virtually nonstop all the way until I caught up near the middle of season 8 – I’ve gotten tougher than I ever would have believed I’d get. Just the other day, I finally listened to BORRASCA, and *loved* it (of course, if there wasn’t a sequel that provided emotional closure, I wouldn’t have, but details details). This is my favorite show, of any medium.

      I also find them helpful. I’m also a survivor of abuse and while I’ve been in recovery for about 4 years, I still can have issues when blindsided with things that are possibly triggering. I can always deal with something that triggers my PTSD if I’m aware firsthand, so being able to see what a story is about makes this podcast accessible to me. I won’t listen to or recommend podcasts without warnings, so I’m happy to recommend this podcast to anyone who likes horror.

    Woof. I started seeing where The Pancake Family was going early on but was still very shaken. Well done, it isn’t often that that type of horror is done well. Typically it is just gruesome for gross out sake. This was truly dread inducing.

      It requires some serious suspension of disbelief, because… *that*… is an absolute medical impossibility. It would have been better had there been a supernatural element to it. But it’s still shocking and damn scary.

    […] Some news on the Pancake Family, which seems to probably be the most viral story I’ve written in the era since I put my mind -mostly- back together. Every time I think it’s been flattened for good, the Pancake Family puts its collective thumb back in its collective mouth, blows, and re-inflates. The original audio adaptation from the good people at “the Nosleep Podcast” is now avail… […]

    Well, I’m waiting for my own personal premiere of The Pancake Family, but ,you know,
    when a ta)e is bestowed with such a ”playful,” uncanny title, it promises to provide a
    well-thought-out, creative tale that one doesn’t soon forget. The less-believable the
    plot, the morethe story’s “problem.,’ staying with you, preying on one’s mind.
