    Darknet Diaries
    Darknet Diaries72: Bangladesh Bank Heist
    "Crazy story here. In 2016 a group of hackers known as “Lazarus” successfully stole $81 million from a bank in Bangladesh — perhaps the largest amount of money ever stolen in a bank heist. This episode covers the surrounding story, who/if they were caught, and the hackers’ country of origin — which will surprise you. "

    Limetown
    LimetownEpisode 1: What We Know
    "Fans of Serial and other true crime podcasts will enjoy this fictional series. The format was clearly inspired by Serial, and it tells the story of a whole research town that went missing, with a lot of thriller and sci-fi elements. The voice acting is top-notch and the story is gripping! "

    Lore
    LoreEpisode 147: Contained
    "Aaron Menkhe is synonymous with quality production in my eyes. His narration shines when he’s just setting up a scene for the rest of his stories to take place. Seamlessly pairing historic facts with haunting folklore is what this podcast is all about and this episode did that in equal parts from the lens of walls - how a tool meant for protection is also used as a tool for imprisoning ourselves."

    SCP Archives
    SCP ArchivesSCP-3008: "Perfectly Normal IKEA"
    "How do you make a horror story out of IKEA? Strap yourself in, cause this is a doozy of a story. As usual, John Grill’s narration is reminiscent of Rod Sterling from the Twilight Zone, which makes the technical information more easily digestible. But the standout performer was Jesse Hall as a sarcastic and witty survivor. This clip showcases the great acting and sound design in this story."

    Chilling Tales for Dark Nights: A Horror Anthology and Scary Stories Series Podcast
    Chilling Tales for Dark Nights: A Horror Anthology and Scary Stories Series Podcast52: Falling Inside the Black – Chilling Tales for Dark Nights
    "Chilling Tales lives up to its name with these two stories. The first tale is an ambiguous decent into madness, where the listener will question whether demons are at work or just lurking insanity. The second tale is about a children’s book with extremely vivid imagery. Personally, I loved this story. I was also surprised by the quality of the VA work. Both narrators did an amazing job! "

    Nightmare Magazine - Horror and Dark Fantasy Story Podcast (Audiobook | Short Stories)
    Nightmare Magazine - Horror and Dark Fantasy Story Podcast (Audiobook | Short Stories)Millie Ho | A Moonlit Savagery
    "This story begins like a foggy dream, engulfing the listener in whimsical descriptions, before rotting into a dark tale with parallels to human trafficking, cultural exploitation, and the horrors that lie behind society’s corrupting influence. This wasn’t scary, but it will haunt you long after the episode ends. Justine Eyre did a great job voicing this story. This clip shows how she set the tone."
