Welcome to Season 1, Episode 3 of Scary Stories Told in the Dark, starring Otis Jiry.

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. (Artificial Intelligence) coin, and the abject fear that one can experience both being the creation, as well as the creator.  Regardless of which end of the spectrum you fall on yourself, or empathize with, one thing is certain: the “Singularity” will someday affect us all, and when it does, pulling the plug may not be so easy as we expect.


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.

These were two of the best stories I have ever heard. Well done.

Soooooo dope! I am a huge fan of story telling – especially scary stories, so this is right up my alley. Both of these tales were haunting. I wasn’t prepared for the psychological and philosophical journeys both of these stories took me on. Very well done.
