    Yes! The long stories are the best ones. Also, this is the best opening music yet. This is going to be soooo good.

      Have to agree, best opening music yet. Would be more than happy if it was made the permanent intro music to take us into our hour of listening pleasure.

    Happy Anniversary to the NoSleep Podcast! Thank you to all the narrators, writers, supporters, and producers for making this podcast as amazing as it is. May there be many years to come and many more opportunities to grow and learn.

    This is a great story as well. Very well written and it disturbed me slightly how the character’s logic made so much sense..

    We need more creepy. I need more creepy! Faces in the window, something sinister standing over you in your sleep, waking up to something licking your feet, scratching on the wall, being stalked by a malevolent something in the woods, whispers in the night, something watching you from your closet… Creepy please! One of the scariest stories you did was in the first season i forget what episode but the guy goes camping and is suppose to meet up with his friends a couple days later and a women demon witch whatever is tourmenting the hell out of him… Chills. Anyway, I love this show so friggen much. You guys are the best podcast, no doubt! I have everyone I know listening to you guys. Remember more creep less sleep!

      Found it, if you or anyone else is interested in listening again. It’s called Laurel Highlands, and it’s on episode eight of season one.

      My personal favorites are “The Showers” from the halloween special of season two, and “The Stairs and the Doorway” from the pilot. So, I’m inclined to agree about more creepy content, but it can be hard to find well written stories of that nature. I like getting the more subtle stories like these because they get done really well, and when another really creepy one comes out, it’s even better.

      Great episode, been looking forward to it all week, and was not disappointed.

        Mudo, I can’t thank you enough, I’ve been trying to remember the episode that features “Laurel Highlands” ever since I discovered, and started marathoning this podcast in October 2014. I googled the plot, and even resorted to going back through, and re-marathoning (admittedly, not an unpleasant endeavor). Somehow I missed it.

        So, thank you!

      It is a movie. It’s called fight club based on a book of the same name by chuck paliahnuk. This is just a sophomoric mashup of that and Christopher Nolan’s the dark knight.

        This was nothing like fight club! Frost wasn’t just a fuckin Figment of his imagination. They didnt start a club of any kind. how was it like fight club?

          It’s like Fight Club but less interesting honestly. Same idea. Nick Frost is literally Tyler Durden.

        Maybe, but it is still lame to call it a “full length episode” regardless. Only what, one other episode had but one story..? Please.

          Some people prefer one long story to several short ones, myself included. If you want more content made for your tastes, you should probably try to be more positive.

      Episode 3 has six stories. See, it has some for everyone.

    “Emily was my girlfriend before I started dating Nick”

    He’s dating Nick? Did I miss something?

        *meant joke. Humor is a bit rare in this type of story, so I guess I can’t judge.

    Great story right up until the end, where it became a blatant rip-off of a scene from The Dark Knight. That really took me out of it. But the rest of the story was very well written and narrated.

    I agree about the music too. It really helped set the mood. It would make the perfect intro music for the podcast.

    This is definitely like Fight Club without the split-personality twist revelation. Nick Frost makes Tyler Durden look like a pussy. Really riveting story with an amazing narrator!! LOVED THAT AMBIGUOUS ENDING!!

    I LOVE this story! I’ve listened to it again and again. It’s very much up my alley and it’s so inspiring (storytelling-wise)! I love how it’s written, I love all the different details that went into it… My only regret is that it didn’t keep going, but I would much rather have it end while it’s still good then try to force something further so… Astounding work, all around! I think this was a wonderful choice for the 2 Year anniversary episode!

    A great story, but the “non-ending” ruined it for me.

    This was fantastic! It was so well written and should be made into a movie.

    lol this was so corny – trite malthusian nihilism straight out of a teen whose entire philosophy is informed by Fight Club and who thinks Rorschach from Watchmen is a cool role model. none of the narrator’s actions or reactions make any sense. the author might think he’s hedging his bets by lampshading this (“If I was smart…”, etc.), but only ends up drawing more attention to the failure of storycraft.

    if you think the ending here was bad, read the full ending at the CTFDN website (; it’s even stupider than you would have guessed. not only does the villain betray his own stated ethos, making all the pseudo-tension in the house fire scene worthless, but the ending itself commits one of the capital crimes of storytelling.

    This was probably one of the worst choices I feel that could have been made for this. The revelation came a bit too late for the main character, and I agree with the last commenter. Literally just a washed up Fight Club clone.

    John doesn’t seem like the sharpest tool in the shed in this one.

    Also, not a huge fan of the writing. It definitely needed a beta-reader and a ton of editing before publishing. (The same people clamoring for peace were the same people starting a war – one too many “sames”). The writing is also incredibly cheesy and pretentious (frequent analogies: “This is a reality show, Nick is the host, I am the audience, these guys are the contestants”; “This is music. Nick is the composer, I am the instrument, this is a symphony”). Not sure how David read it without cringing. 10 points to him for that.
