In this third episode of Scary Stories Told in the Dark, we bring you two terrifying tales from an anonymous author and Christopher Gideon, performed by host and narrator Otis Jiry, about both sides of the A.I.

More
In this second episode of Scary Stories Told in the Dark, we bring you two terrifying tales from authors Christian Thompson and John Morressy, performed by host and narrator Otis Jiry, about shops discovered in both out-of-the-way places, as well as in plain sight, which hold within their walls some treasures that sound just too good to be true.

Season 2, Episode 6 – “Don’t Look Away”

4/25/2017
More
We dedicate this presentation to the work of Author Wil Dalphin. Not since Stephen King’s “Night Shift” have we seen a short story anthology with as much bite as this Indiana native’s generous compilation of 35 harrowing nightmares in his book, “Don’t Look Away”, soon to be available on Amazon.com! We have worked directly with the author to choose some of the most tantalizingly of his terrifying tomes from his shriek-inducing collection to adapt for you, in order that you might experience...

Season 2, Episode 3- “Conspiracy and Armageddon”

2/16/2017
More
Collectively etched into our psyche is the fear of the comet and doom from above, while the shadowy reflections of our mind wonder if the world we inhabit is as real as our five senses lead us to believe. Our guilty consciences secretly fear judgment while nature’s signs portend doom from below. Top that off with the fear of an overreaching authority that may not be trustworthy in fully disclosing facts, and you have a hearty recipe for horror - Simply Scary style! For this collection of...

Season 2, Episode 1 – “Screams and Whispers”

1/19/2017
More
They say that sometimes the most frightening things are those that you cannot see. And from our horrifying experiences, you’ve become very familiar with how effective unsettling sounds can be. You know how a deep rumbling unsettles your tummy and your soul; how an almost silent whisper blowing by your ear sends your courage deep into hiding; how both the scurrying of claws on a hard surface and the bellowing of a demonic entity turn the spine to jelly. So for our opening episode of the...

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...
