Welcome to Season 1, Episode 8 of Scary Stories Told in the Dark, starring Otis Jiry.

In this eighth episode of Scary Stories Told in the Dark, we bring you chapters 4-7 – and the thrilling conclusion – of William Hope Hodgson‘s masterpiece “The Hog”, performed by host and narrator Otis Jiry, which makes clear that just outside the periphery of man, there lie those which have desires regarding us which are incredibly more dreadful to our minds when comprehended than an intelligent sheep would consider our desires towards its own carcass. These monstrosities, Hodgson writes, reside within the “The Outer Circle.”

I love this podcast! I can’t believe I’m just now finding it. I listen to this while I’m trying to get through my work day, but also at home when I need a break.
