    What a way to end the season! Both of these tales were great, slow burns to very satisfying conclusions. “Copper Canyon” is a great example of non-supernatural horror (including an ending that still leaves a question or two), while “New Fish” is pure otherworldly terror, juxaposed by the mundane horrors of prison life. Well done.

    Copper Canyon rings so close to the crash on Taconic Parkway back in 2009. It is very haunting and well done.

    Once again, a fantastic season finale! Looking forward to the next installment of Suddenly Shocking and of course, Season 5!

    I just finished and renewed my subscription. New Fish was one of the best long form stories this season. It was well written, well read and completely terrifying. The first story, Copper Canyon was also very good, as a frequent commuter you never know what you are seeing when people are driving oddly. Made for a chilling commute home Monday night.

    Keep up the great work, I look forward to subscribing for many more seasons!

    Had listened to a couple of ‘casts from season five and found them compelling. New Fish absolutely sealed the deal. The No Sleep Podcast is my new favorite podcast.

    My kids and I love your podcast! One thing: I wish I could see the illustration on my iPhone.

    I know it’s possible to make this happen. You can even change the picture for each story.
    See the Audible Treats (music) podcast for an example of how this is done.

    Best wishes,
    David, Leo and Simon

    I am a new no sleep listener and amazed at the high quality of the podcasts. Definitely getting season passes for all 6 seasons. Started at season 6 and listening back to one!!

    I’m new to the podcast but have purchased season 3 and 4. I’m a huge fan of all of your work and dedication and eagerly await each new episode. That being said…the second story (New Fish) was atrocious. Just atrocious.

    I’m not one to get on a social justice soapbox (especially when it comes to horror fiction) but there have literally been like two queer characters in any story so far….and now this?

    A transwoman transitioning on a whim and then living in gen. pop in prison? Ridiculous over the top hyper masculine bro rape? I understand suspending my disbelief, but forreal??

    I know you don’t write the content but goddamn, someone has to approve this stuff. I don’t mind gory and wild but can you at least make sure it’s well written?

      I know what you mean. I was pretty icked out by how Remy was written, and aside from that was pretty disappointed with New Fish.

    I get that the author of “New Fish” was trying to write dialogue for edgy, tough cons, but it comes across sounding a bit like an eleven-year-old who just discovered the F word. It ceases to be shocking very early on.

    I think mentions of rape should be a trigger warning for New Fish and really any story that contains that type of content.

    Ugh I hated the police dispatcher having to repeat everything the callers were saying. Great story tho!
