Welcome to Season 1, Episode 2 of Scary Stories Told in the Dark, starring Otis Jiry.

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.  Sometimes, the old addages turn out to be more true than one could ever expect, and the Latin phrase “Caveat Emptor” – buyer beware” – becomes more crucial than ever.


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.
