      I haven’t. DelGaudio has a rich, smooth voice, while Cornett has a raspy, gritty voice with a distinct southern drawl.

    Shoutout to Jesse Cornett, he doesn’t seem to receive the public recognition among fans that he rightfully deserves. He’s really cemented himself as a high quality voice actor on the show. Shoutout to Jessie.

    This is the only fiction podcast I will ever listen to. NoSleep continues to wow in both production value, and huge talent in the voice acting department. Thank you for the hours of tingling horror.

    Great stuff as usual – best horror podcast by far. Must say it’s cheesy to throw in that the young guy is gay – that kind of stumbling pandering inclusion is embarrassing to anyone who is gay…. and its been done before on the show in the same way….. great job.

      I’m gay and wrote it. Sometimes conversations like that just happen. 😉

      You need to talk with more actual gay people. Our existence isn’t pandering, including us in a story isn’t forced. Why aren’t you complaining about the bit at the end about roberts jr possibly dating the main character’s mom? that is technically pandering too.

    I love the music that is produced for this podcast. I am sure this has been discussed before but has there ever been discussion of releasing the music as individual files as part of the season pass? I think it would be a nice extra for those who purchase season passes.

      Thanks David!

      As Anon linked, I upload all the music as soundtracks on my Bandcamp page.

      I’m glad you enjoy my contribution to this wonderful program :)

        Awesome thanks! I am looking for the music used for “Love Notes” from season 3, Episode 2. It is such a hauntingly beautiful song

          Ah, I’m afraid that wasn’t me. I didn’t take the main music role until season 4/5.

    Stunning work as always. I loved the forest of a thousand legs story a lot, it’s terrifying and the production makes it so much worse (the skittering, jesus) but it has a nice ending + as a lesbian it’s always great to hear a story with a queer protag. Kudos!

    OMG. “The Forest of a Thousand Legs” was the best piece of original horror that I’ve heard in a long time. I’m a little in love with it and immediately had to gush about it to my wife. As a lesbian, arachno-enthusiast myself, this story had all of the elements that make me connect to a story. What would I give to be able to take a trip to this forest for a while? Absolutely excellent.

    I thought “The Forest of a Thousand Legs” was genius. The only problem is that now I keep brushing these phantom spiders off of me. Brrrr!

    I was sitting here listening to “The Forest of a Thousand Legs” and glimpsed a spider crawling up my wall in my peripheral vision, now I am sitting here paranoid that more are going to come out and attack me. This story made me paranoid and sleepless mission accomplished :)

    Dang the last few episodes haven’t been my cup of tea but this one knocked it out of the park.

    I’ve been a fan since the very first time David recorded him reading a story out loud on r/nosleep. I remember almost shitting myself for the first 3 seasons (I’ve since become very desensitized). But that goddamnfucking spider story has ruined me! Thanks! 😀 LOL
