    Fuuuuuccckkk. I’d read both of these stories on /r/nosleep before and yet somehow it’s so much scarier than that. Having them read to you is an entirely different experience. I wasn’t even all that scared by “The Midnight Man” but now I’m pretty much terrified. Did I mention that it’s 4pm in a brightly lit office? Yeah.

    The sounds and effects really pull it all together. I really liked the kind of radio effect that happened to Alex’s voice at the end.

    Excellent start to what’s shaping up to be my favourite podcast. Quality ghost stories in podcast and radio format is so hard to come by these days.

    I was actually starting to get slightly bored of nosleep until I heard this. It really does make the stories infinitely more scary. Keep up the excellent work!

    I was very amazed at how much this story as all the others drew me in.
    i like how all your stories give good descriptions. I feel what the character feels and see what the character sees. very good production.

    I am glad I found this podcast. It is so good, and I am not even a Reddit user.

    So, that first one was freaky enough I almost didn’t make it through…glad I did though, cause the midnight man was the perfect companion to the first creepy tale.

    Thanks, NoSleep peeps.

    Just stumbled across this podcast a couple of days ago, and I’m really enjoying listening to it.

    Everyone who contributed to this in any way is absolutely amazing.

    P.S. I slept with the lights on last night.

    Having never used Reddit, for the first 8 minutes I thought ‘um, I thought this was a horror podcast…’, but then that eerie music started and it got creepy as all hell. Love it. Looking forward to hearing the rest.

    it’s amazing how far you’ve gotten. On this episode it was basically just you reading the stories, and now on season seven you have so many narrators xD WAY TO GO DAVID keep it up bud. I’m so proud of you and I am looking forward to next sunday :)

    The doorway series is excellent, but I don’t like the narrator for this, don’t like the way he emphasises words.

      I don’t like the way he draws out words either.
