Season 1, Episode 18 – “Slay Bells Ring”

12/23/2016
More
As the stockings are hung, the Hanukkah candles are lit, and as we practice the seven principles of Kwanzaa, we all try to be a little less impatient and more forgiving at this time of year. Even those who do not celebrate ritual December holidays seem to have a glow about them as the Gregorian calendar approaches the zero hour. We here at The Simply Scary Podcast are no different, in that we feel the spirits of Christmas as we prepare you for Yuletide scares. So settle your debts and fill...

Season 1, Episode 17 – “Sinking Into Madness”

12/21/2016
More
Prepare yourself to experience a world where wrong is right. Where the twisted perception of those descending into cognizant chaos strikes out at the realm of the rational with oblivious ecstasy. Delusion drives their single-mindedness. They can be so driven that they’ll overcome any obstacle and ignore any information contrary to their understanding. Ever increasing paranoia pushes them further into the abyss and evil is projected onto enigmatic situations, all in an effort to cement...

Season 1, Episode 16 – “Twisted Worlds”

12/15/2016
More
We have come to be comfortable in the world we see around us, but often we take for granted the realm of logic we occupy. That is why a reality of the impossible can be so utterly disturbing to us. Whether perceived as bland or boring, we securely blanket ourselves in the safe, common knowledge that right is right, up is up, and things that are inanimate are just that… Join us, won’t you, as we reveal the unimaginable landscape of "Twisted Worlds."

Season 1, Episode 15 – “Walking in the Dark”

12/13/2016
More
The dark brings out the most interesting characters, doesn’t it? For example, imagine that you’re taking a walk in the woods on a cool moonlit evening, when you happen to stumble upon a stranger there amongst the tree’s creaking limbs. He seems harmless enough …a lonesome fellow traveler… but his ensuing request to “take a walk” with him opens up a world far more disturbing than you could ever imagine. The pair of stories in this episode have been masterfully performed by Otis Jiry, our...

Season 1, Episode 14 – “Paranormal Imprisonment”

12/8/2016
More
When we think of what it means to be imprisoned, we imagine the tangible: stone walls, iron bars... armed guards… Yet, these are not the true keys to apprehension and imprisonment... In fact, we submit that the best way to confine a person may be through coercion, fear and intimidation. What better way to accomplish these goals than violating the laws of nature to manipulate the situation supernaturally, thereby, confusing your prey and prohibiting them from comprehending what is happening...

Season 1, Episode 13 – “Requiem”

12/6/2016
More
This episode is dedicated to a writer and performer named Emma Froh, known to many online as CreepMissPasta. She was a friend of and contributor to the show for years before leaving this earth as the result of a car accident on icy roads on 12/6/2014, two years ago to the date of the release of this episode, at only 22 years of age. This talented, generous artist is dearly missed here at Simply Scary. But instead of merely brooding that she is gone, we intend to celebrate the quality work...

Season 1, Episode 12 – “From the Dark Sky”

12/1/2016
More
The world of film and fiction would attempt to convince us that our first meeting with extraterrestrial beings will be a cerebral, enlightening experience. They assure us that we have much to learn from each other and that it will be an encounter between conscious, sentient and benevolent minds. They sometimes paint a positively heartwarming, humorous picture, implying our interactions will eventually become routine. Their fantasy journeys attempt to assuage our fears by showing us...

Season 1, Episode 11 – “Such Sweet Sorrow”

11/29/2016
More
When we think of horror, we may imagine the immediate dangers of things such as being stalked by a malicious predator, getting lost with no hope of return, and painfully tragic accidents and injuries, or perhaps some other life-threatening situation. But what of the people who are left behind after the monster does its work, or when the nightmare is finally over? "What horrors await them?" you may ask. Will they be the next to meet with foul circumstances, or will something far worse...

Season 1, Episode 10 – “Pages of Dust”

11/24/2016
More
In our tirelessly terrifying efforts to bring you brand new fear fodder, The Simply Scary Podcast sometimes devotes our episodes to the works of single authors that are haunted by dark, foreboding vision. The only way to purge them from their minds? Why, by trying to pass them on to you, of course! For this excursion we take wicked pleasure in bringing you the works of a sword-fighting enthusiast from New York whose writing talents will leave your blade trembling. The author of this...

Season 1, Episode 8 – “Watching from the Woods”

11/17/2016
More
A dark time is upon us as winter’s breath prepares to blow in the Northern Hemisphere and we will soon be reaching the point where the cold will spoil all that is beautiful. Though the outdoors is becoming more foreboding with each shortening day and the fun events under the summer sun are fast becoming a memory - fear not! …Or rather, be fearful, for the giving of thanks is coming, so we should be in an appreciative frame of mind. Thus, these stories are effectively meant as a public...

Season 1, Episode Episode 7 – “Creature Feature”

11/15/2016
More
Here at Simply Scary, we are true animal lovers. No, really, we are. We have pet dogs, cats, fish, and even some of the more exotic sorts of pets like snakes, chameleons… and interns. All of them are so close to us that they’re practically part of the family. They keep us company, they’re loyal and they demand little from us. But there’s always a chance they could regress to a stage where they become feral, frightened, dangerous creatures that we should think twice about having in our...

Season 1, Episode 6 – “The Lesser of Two Evils”

11/8/2016
More
As of the release of this episode, we’re in the home stretch of the 2016 American Presidential election cycle. Many of us are beginning to get a sense of relief that this embarrassing national circus is coming to an end. Either way, roughly half to two thirds of the country is about to be profoundly disappointed and a large portion of either team’s supporters fears buyer’s remorse. And it just so happens that we here at the Simply Scary Podcast specialize in fear. In honor of the momentous...

Season 1, Episode 5 – “Comfort Food”

Halloween Season has come and gone, leaving only the faint scent of chocolate and bloody nightmares hanging in the air. Fortunately, we know exactly what to snack on during that special hangover from Halloween. Since there’s nothing but Thanksgiving and Christmas ahead of us, in order to ease your post-Samhain pain, we serve up two generous servings of horrific "Comfort Food."

10/18/2016
More
In this second installment of our program we meet beings who exist on the edges of our reality. Beings many of us unconsciously believe in, with all our hearts, at the darkest times. They pass through us constantly and while we won’t know it, we’ll still feel it. No, we don’t mean ghosts. What we mean are beings that exist beyond life and death. They are demons. And “They are Legion.” See full episode details, including the text of the featured stories, here:...

Season 1, Episode 1 – “Childhood Mysteries”

10/11/2016
More
As nostalgic as many of us get for our childhood, memory can be a frustratingly unreliable thing. It can lose the most precious moments and information from our formative years… Inexplicably, when we really need it for a conversation with an old friend, our memories may fail us and leave us stammering for an explanation. Sometimes, though, the gaps in our memory shield us from revelations that, if they had been retained, would haunt us to our graves. Today’s stories are about unfortunate...
