    I enjoyed this episode quite a bit! Keep up the good work, team!

    Tourist Mine and I found a dead girl’s diary were the highlights of the episode in my opinion. Mike DelGaudio’s narration was fantastic!

    However, Ruined Sheets was such a melodramatic and poorly written story in my opinion. I also wasn’t a big fan of Jessica’s performance as the child in the story (though her other performances were great).

    Pop Go the People was VERY reminiscent of the film ‘Slither’ but I enjoyed it nonetheless.

    The mannequins story was okay at best but I truly am sick and tired of the smiling villain cliche at this point. It’s just overused and needs to be retired/used very sparingly.

    The Tourist Mine is one of my favourite types of horror fiction. Dark, unexplained places and things that shouldn’t really be there. It reminds me of stories like “The Stairs and the Doorway”, “The Showers” and a couple I don’t remember (One was about a shack with noises that had tunnels under it and the other was one about a guy finding a place that had giant metal seals underground).

    I’m also a huge fan of Nikolle’s narration. We have such a great team for these stories!

      Just want to second, “The Stairs and the Doorway” and “The Showers” are also two of my favorite stories on the podcast. Will really be looking forward to hearing this one!

      You should try reading “House of Leaves” by Mark Danielewski. Super cool book.

    I personally loved the mannequin story. Anything with lifeless objects, (or objects that should be lifeless), going out and terrorizing people is perfectly chilling to me. I also listened to the interview you attached for Geeks Guide to the Galaxy and I thought you represented the podcast beautifully. I love this podcast, it’s the only thing that I look foreword to every Monday. Keep up the good work, Mr. Cummings. I’ll keep listening.

      I totally agree, the mannequin story just had those qualities that sent shivers down my spine. Especially during the phone call bit.

      and I 3rd that comment about the mannequin story. it was the best one of the episode imo. anything to do with mannequins is terrifying. I hate those things.

    The story Pop goes the people is the exact description of a flash game called ‘The Visitor’ the only thing is that the worm is pink not green. That story is not their own and not original. It is stolen from the plot of the visitor.

      I actually played ‘The Visitor’ and ‘The Visitor Returns’ several years ago. Great little interactive experiences that I wholeheartedly recommend seeking out.

      I chose this story to narrate, because it captures some of those deep, dark fears of mine. That something unexplained is lurking in the tall grass, just waiting to paint the world a lovely new shade of red.

      I get this feeling from playing the Visitor series too, but that is where the similarities end for me. The loosely shared concepts of a fiendish worm/slug creature and a bit of explosive spray do not a derivative make.
