Carrier, Lore, Spooked

Spoooooooky Halloween everybody! This week's episode is all about the creepy, kooky and downright spooky so we've found podcasts to recommend that are (hopefully) guaranteed to make your skin crawl. Liz recommends an immersive drama featuring some star power with Cynthia Erivo, Carrier; Zane looks to this mortal coil with real-life supernatural encounters in Spooked WNYC; and Patrick takes a look the frightening history behind common folklore with the podcast that spawned an Amazon Prime TV series, Lore.

Liz Recommends - Carrier

The main reason Liz got so, erm, carried away with Carrier was the immersive experience factor. Thanks to excellent soundscapes and use of surround sound, you really feel like you're in the episode and experiencing every eerie thing the protagonist is experiencing.

"What happens when a truck driver picks up a loaded trailer, but has no idea what’s really inside? Tony, Grammy, and Emmy award winner Cynthia Erivo journeys down a dark and lonely highway in this original scripted thriller from Qcode and creator Dan Blank. With immersive audio techniques that create a dimensional listening experience, the audience is strongly advised to use caution, wear headphones if possible, and listen... carefully."

For both: It's a serial so start from the start and listen with headphones for a full experience.

Pat Recommends - Lore

Hosted by Aaron Mahnke, Lore is an award-winning, podcast about true life scary stories. Each episode revolves around a them a takes a dark little dive into some of the darker nooks and crannies of history. These pieces run for about a half hour and include 2 or 3 stories, that's just value you can't turn down. New eps drop fortnightly on Mondays.

For Zane & Liz: It's all good homies
