Book Review: “The Faceless Old Woman Who Secretly Lives in Your Home” by Joseph Fink and Jeffrey Cranor

Write this down: I have now finished two books in two two weeks, and I read them each in just a single day. It's been so long since I've done this that I really don't know how to deal with my feelings surrounding this! I previewed TFOWWSLIYH (man, I need a better acronym - what … Continue reading Book Review: “The Faceless Old Woman Who Secretly Lives in Your Home” by Joseph Fink and Jeffrey Cranor

First Impression Friday: “The Faceless Old Woman Who Secretly Lives In Your Home” by Joseph Fink and Jeffrey Cranor

If you have never listened to the podcast Welcome to Night Vale, I suggest you head to your favorite podcast app and give it a listen. They've been on-air since 2012, so there are about 160 or so episodes for you to catch up on. I'll wait. Ready? Great. I've been listening to WTNV since about … Continue reading First Impression Friday: “The Faceless Old Woman Who Secretly Lives In Your Home” by Joseph Fink and Jeffrey Cranor

Podcasts: Welcome to Night Vale

And now we come to the podcast that started it all: Welcome to Night Vale. I started listening to this podcast in 2015 or so, and fell off the wagon for a few years. (According to the Night Vale community, though, you're not true Night Vale Trash unless you're like 50+ episodes behind the current … Continue reading Podcasts: Welcome to Night Vale

Podcasts: Unobscured, Season 1: The Salem Witch Trials

And of course, we have the third podcast on this list that's written and produced by Aaron Mahnke. Unobscured is different from the others, though, in that it follows one single story from beginning to end across the entire season of the podcast (a 12-week season). History is full of stories we think we know. … Continue reading Podcasts: Unobscured, Season 1: The Salem Witch Trials

Podcasts: The Angel of Vine

Let me get one thing straight: if there's anything I love, it's detective stories, or mysteries on general. It's something I've loved for a long time. I've got several detective (both professional and amateur) series on my bookshelves, and I've got many, many more mystery books as well. So let me tell you that, when … Continue reading Podcasts: The Angel of Vine

Podcasts: Our Fake History

This week's podcast has something in common with last week's, and that's the fact that the Our Fake History podcast deals with myths and legends as well. It takes you through the story that you think you know, tells you why that story is fake, and tells you the real story behind everything. It might not … Continue reading Podcasts: Our Fake History

Podcasts: Myths & Legends

This is the only podcast (so far) that I'm still trying to play catch-up on. If you know anything about me, you'll know that I absolutely love stuff like myths, legends, folktales, superstitions, and the like. The Myths & Legends podcast seemed like it could really fit into what I was looking for. Ever wonder … Continue reading Podcasts: Myths & Legends

Podcasts: Murderville, GA

Murderville, GA is a brand-new podcast that I recently found through...something. I think it was probably through the Angel of Vine podcast's ads. (All ads aren't that bad, I guess?) When a brutal murder rocks a small Southern town, residents and police are shocked. Could the new guy in town be the one who who … Continue reading Podcasts: Murderville, GA

Podcasts: Lore

This week's podcast is related to the first one I did, Aaron Mahnke's Cabinet of Curiosities. Like Cabinet of Curiosities, this one was written and produced by Aaron Mahnke. Unlike Cabinet of Curiosities, this one is much longer and covers a wide variety of unsettling topics. Winner of the iTunes "Best of 2015" & "Best … Continue reading Podcasts: Lore

Podcasts: Birmingham Barons X-Wing Podcast

This week's podcast is going to be something way more niche than the rest of the podcasts have been or will be. This week's podcast is my boyfriend's podcast, the Birmingham Barons X-Wing Podcast! This is a podcast all about x-wing, which is a competitive table top game involving ships from the Star Wars universe … Continue reading Podcasts: Birmingham Barons X-Wing Podcast
