    Loved the crow one, so intiguing. I was kinda hoping the crows would turn out to be the malevolent force, intelligently completing a cycle of murder and luring. That they understood a person would follow them to find the previous victim only to peck and gouge them to death when they arrived.

    All I could picture in my head when listening to Magic Marty was a clown in the vents, similar to Pennywise.

    Jim, I have to say your opening introduction had me smiling. 2016 has been a rough year for many of us. Luckily we have The NoSleep Podcast to drag…erm, urge us forward into the New Year. Thank you NoSleep team! And enjoy your vacation!

    Murder in My Backyard was fantastic! Addison is one of my favorite narrators, and that story was very well written. The production quality of stories just continues to get better and better.

    And thank you, Jim, for the positive and uplifting intro. It means so much.

    Thanks, NoSleep Team for making 2016 slightly less terrible! And enjoy your well deserved vacation! I started listening to you not more than two weeks ago, so although there won’t be new episodes soon, I’ll be busy catching up with all the old seasons!

    Now, I have to say The Murder in my Backyard was absolutely great! Also, heartbreaking…at one point, I was afraid the crows had attacked Kaitlyn, which would have been horrible but the actual end was far more twisted. This is my favorite story heard in this podcast!

    This was such an amazing episode, so many top notch stories. Big thumbs up, guys!

    Pyramid of the Dead has to be one of my favorite stories this season. So dementedly eerie.

    This might just be the best episode of season 8! All of them were unsettling and unique. Magic Marty was creepy as hell, Murder in my Backyard was wicked suspenseful, but the Woods was the best story yet. Totally original with great voice acting (looking at you, Jessica M, Peter Lewis; this is the best you have done imo!) and just seriously incredible concept. Thanks for making the end of this year spooky in the best of ways!

    I’ve been binging on this podcast from Season 1, but stopped at the Season 2 ending and pulled the trigger buying a Season 8 pass. Just had to pop in to say the Woods story was so entertaining. Spooky, thrilling, endearing, and so funny. I nearly spit my food at the “shouldn’t have smoked so much weed” comment. You’d think it would take away from the story, but the narrative moves seamlessly between comedic and tense moments. What a terrific listening experience, with perfect voice acting. Well done! I’ll be buying every Season Pass!
