Season 16 Trigger Warnings

Some of our listeners may find the content of certain stories disturbing because of trauma or bad experiences in their lives. This page allows you to get some information about stories that have content which may “trigger” emotionally disturbing memories.

In order to be as respectful as possible to the authors, these trigger warnings are not intended to be spoilers for the story. However, bear in mind that by viewing these trigger warnings you may see information that reveals aspects of the plot that may in fact “spoil” the impact of the story.

Please note that the very nature of horror stories is to frighten and disturb. The content of the stories on The NoSleep Podcast is inherently graphic in terms of adult language, themes of death, people being endangered by stalkers/murderers, and explicit sexuality. These themes are to be expected and therefore will not be listed as trigger warnings.
