Welcome to Season 1, Episode 1 of Scary Stories Told in the Dark, starring Otis Jiry.

In this debut episode of Scary Stories Told in the Dark, we bring you two terrifying tales from authors Jeff Hartin and Polum Chill, performed by host and narrator Otis Jiry, about things that go bump in the night, in the dark… and which react in an interesting fashion to light.  Sometimes, as it turns out, it’s better to see what’s after you.  Other times, not so much. After all, you can never be quite what sort of “Danger in the Dark” is on your tail.


The version of this podcast which is made freely available here is ad-supported and contains both stories listed. To enjoy the premium, ad-free version of this episode – as well as our extensive audio archive of other terrifying tales – please sign up for a Patrons account today.
