The NoSleep Podcast has been around for a long time, and so I’m sure that there have been many people many times who have written blog posts, articles, and what have you’s about the horror anthology podcast. The thing that I love so much about this podcast is that they showcase writers at literally every level. There are people whose first story was literally for the podcast, and people who have gone on to have novels published. It’s all inclusive, and all encompassing of the many facets of the broad umbrella of “horror”.
NoSleep started out as forum to bring to life the top stories on the Reddit subforum “NoSleep”. It has since evolved into so much more, and authors can now submit stories through email for consideration. One of the things that I think is so fascinating about the NoSleep podcast is its unique format. Every episode has at least two stories that are available to the public, making each free/public episode at least one hour long. In order to get the full, over two hour long episode, people can buy “season passes”. You can purchase individual episodes or the entire season, but if you’re a broke college kid like me don’t worry! The NoSleep podcast, as I said, offers at least two of their stories from each episode as their own individual episode for free.
The NoSleep show runner is David Cummings, and they have 30+ voice actors that contribute to the podcast from all different walks of life.
On a more personal, less informationy note:
The thing that I have come to appreciate so much about this podcast is the way that people are exposed to every subgenre of horror. There are stories about creatures, killers, demons, and so many more. If you want to be unsettled, darkly delighted, or anything in between there will always be an episode for you. I’ve been listening long enough now that I even have my favorite voice actors, and am learning to identify their names! (I realize that there is no way top put emojis, but picture that laughing crying face emoji here…)
I have even submitted my own story to them, and I plan to work on and submit more.
I think I will start posting some more specific reviews/discussions of the individual episodes eventually. Right now they are at the end of their 10th season, and so I will probably wait until the 11th season starts up to do this.

As always: keep it horrifying, friends.
