The team that makes this podcast is passionate, wide-minded, and consistently imaginative. The best horror podcast I've listened to. Excellent production values with some amazing high points scattered throughout their history. Clearly committed to their audience.
I loved the first two seasons of this show. It’s really fallen off the rails now. Incredibly cheesy and some of the voice actors make me cringe so hard I can’t listen.
I binged listened to this whole podcast until I finally got caught up earlier this year. I absolutely loved it and couldn’t stop. Over the last couple of months, things haven’t been so great. I’m actually considering unsubscribing. Thought I’d leave this review here, because I’ve already left the FB group due to many restrictions and the fact that they don’t take other people (not mine) opinions very well when expressing where things have been lacking. I’ve held in there because I really did enjoy this podcast. But, thought I should leave a review to maybe mirror some other peoples views as well.
My new all time favorite. Scariest stories you can ever imagine!!!
If you’re looking for amazing horror stories narrated by the best of the best, look no further. Been listening since season 2 and I’ve been hooked since.
The best! I’ve been listening since discovering the podcast on Reddit’s NoSleep subreddit halfway through season 2.
Love it favorite top three podcast
I’ve tried listening to other horror podcasts and no other podcasts even rivals the quality of this one. (Although Magnus Archives is in close 2nd). If you want horror listen to the No Sleep Podcast.
I started listening from the very beginning and every episode gets better and better. I love the narrator. How he speaks to us like he is speaking to only you. The other readers/cast members are great! The music sets up each story perfectly.
I’ve been listening to the show regularly since 2013, & it still holds up as my favorite podcast out there by far. It is the only podcast that I look forward to weekly. I never miss an episode. It’s a great escape. The voice actors & production quality are top notch. I highly recommend.
No Sleep Podcast is my absolute favorite podcast by far!
Snackevoy is my secret crush. There, it’s out there now. Also, amazing quality all-around! Binge this podcast constantly!
Love this podcast, it’s absolutely amazing and the hard work that goes into it is simply outstanding !!! Keep up the great work !
This was my first favorite scary story podcast... Then the last few seasons? What happened to the show? I find myself day dreaming whenever I listened now:/ I’m sorry to say that after a few years I need to unsubscribe. The show just drones on. It’s boring. There. I said it.
The no sleep podcast is absolutely amazing! The hard work these people put into it really shows!
The original or earlier season actors are fantastic but there’s a couple that came in in the last couple seasons that are totally grating. Wish we could just keep it simple.
The best podcast of all podcasts out there. All the people at NoSleep are absolutely fantastic. Thanks for all you do !

Diversity is important! I don’t like ativis
This isn’t a traditional scary stories podcast anymore. Many of the stories just aren’t chilling or disturbing. I actually prefer “creepy” (another podcast) for that now.
Not sure why 99% of characters are lesbian in podcast stories - especially when sexuality almost never has any bearing whatsoever on storyline... just an acceptance thing I suppose.
I’m not someone who cares about someone’s sexual preference so I’m not bothered by it getting brought up just keep the stories scary and I’m not going anywhere
So many great stories!! After many years of listening, I am now starting to purchase the seasons to get the full content. I am not regretting that choice!! If you love horror and love to support new Authors, check this out!
This podcast used to be amazing. The stories were scary and compelling. The past few seasons have been a letdown, unfortunately. The scary factor is gone and stories are blah. Enough with the LGBTQ and BLM. Political issues should be expunged from the fun of scary stories. I’m listening to escape the real world not have it shoved in my face. Please get back to the true meaning of scary stories
Consistently good short form horror. The new narrator, Joseph Shire, is a wonderful new addition!
This podcast was really great! I even considered buying the season pass however the content has been terrible lately. The stories are boring and forgettable. Like another reviewer I would have given one star but gave two for the older eps
Allowable Excerpt: ///Excellent variety, strong consistency, slow-creeping communal vibe which pulls you in before you horrifically discover that/// redacted 7.4-7.6// site en Form From 6
His fear of spiders is boring
The writing is really good, a handful of stories are not as well written as others but far superior then another Creepy podcast that shall remain nameless
I just started listening to No Sleep Podcast I’m flying through the episodes like running water. Great voice actors👍🏽👍🏽👍🏽
I loved this podcast until I got to an episode where a woman is portraying an Arkansan while using the most ridiculously obnoxious and wildly inaccurate portrayal of a “southern accent” I have quite possibly ever heard. Stop equating southern states with idiotic redneck accents and please stop portraying accents/dialect that you are clearly unfamiliar with. Really, really annoying. Saying that the story takes place in Texas, Arkansas, etc. is plenty. Don’t put on your best idiot accent and call it Arkansan.
This podcast used to be fantastic. But now. I can barely stand a episode. Half the time I skip stories. Half are just droning on with way to many actors. It lost the heart it used to have. The only reason I gave it a 2 instead of a one is because the old eps.
Used to love the podcast with great and actually scary stories, and the voice acting was excellent - especially when it first started. Recently however the stories aren’t scary, or even good anymore. Deleting and no longer listening. What a shame.
This show has gone way down in quality. How about you guys pick stories that are actually good and not just based on the authors skin color or who they sleep with. I came here to hear scary stories, not be virtue signaled. Unsubscribed
I’ve been listening to this podcast since it’s early days and I love it💜💜💜
I’m obsessed with this show. It’s fantastic. The production, the stories - great! I listen literally every day 13/10 recommend.
I’ve listened to every story at least twice. I highly recommend if you like horror stories!
This has become my favorite podcast. The voices are animated and varied, without getting distracting or putting me to sleep. The stories are well curated, and generally keep getting better all the time. Season after season, solid gold :)
I found this podcast not too long ago and it’s now my favorite to listen to. They put out lots of really good stories that actually scare me which is hard to find because most other stories from other places don’t really frighten me! Thank you for all the good work you put out, keep it up🥰
I first heard about it from my brother. To make work go by faster I listened to a few episodes from season 12 then got hooked. Then I binged every season from 1 to present. The season passes are definitely worth it too.
This podcast has made my day to day life so much better than it has been in a while. I have always been very into the creepy, paranormal, and mystical. Since I was a kid, and I have searched high and low for something just like this podcast! And I finally stumbled across it. I’m addicted! All of the stories are very interesting and scary. I LOVE LOVE LOVE the use of the different narrators. Very clever, and it makes it feel so much more real and helps immerse me in each and every story fully. Thank you so much David for making this and keeping it going.
Majority of their stories are a great listen.
Actors are great. Long time listener. Appreciate the consistency the most. Thank you. I do have one suggestion. Please eliminate the stories involving children. Or stop having adults (or the usual actor) play the child. It’s obnoxious and doesn’t sound quite right. I think a child’s character can be conveyed through other adult characters without forcing an adult to whine, cry or speak with a speech impediment. Please consider this suggestion. There seems to be more of these episodes lately and and I’m hoping it changes.
These are the worst times I’ve ever seen, worldwide as well as personally. The NoSleep Players, the incredible writers, the artists, and Mr. Cummings, have all been near and dear to me for several seasons in, and now more than ever these scary stories comfort me and give me strength to deal with this much more frightening reality. So thank you all, and when I can make a living again I certainly plan on supporting the podcast as you’ve supported me. Plus I need the extra hours of stories.
Consistently my favorite podcast. I’m reviewing because I’m grateful for the acknowledgement of BLM and the call for inclusivity. I know that’s hard for these established podcasts to do. I’ve always respected this podcast but I do even more now. Keep being the best podcast around. Will always support.
Loved until I heard story of Freddie the talking dog. Made me sad 😞
I listen to many podcasts and this one is definitely one of my favs !!
The earlier seasons were so good and scary. The newer seasons are boring and aren’t scary at all. The endings of most of the stories are so stupid.
This podcast is very good. I absolutely love it when they do super long full cast single story episodes like the hidden webpage which I loved. Although I’m not a fan of some of the stories in the normal length episodes. I feel there a bit lacking and sometimes aren’t really that scary but the quality of the podcast is amazing.
Amazing pod cast!
Update 6-20-2020: The majority of the stories seem to just end, and not in the cliffhanger type ending. The voice talent deserves better material to work with. I miss how amazing this podcast once was. The voice talent is great, but for the most part (96%) the “stories” are absolute rubbish.
I honestly love the podcast and stories but it seems like too many of the narrators pronounce the word or words containing “else” as “elts”. It’s wrong. There is no T in else. Please tell me it gets better. I started from the beginning on here and am about halfway through. Looking up cities your narrators have to pronounce would be useful too. But i love you triggering the conservative snowflakes. #BLACKLIVESMATTER
As a Xennial this story creeped me out big time. Absolutely awesome. Keep up the wonderful work.
The podcast was fine with the previous stories but now it’s all BLM and LQBTQXYZ. Stop virtue signaling. #allivesmatter
Great podcast. It includes every kind of horror, but my favorite thing about it is that it doesn’t shy away from the political, psychological and cathartic nature of horror. I’ve tried other horror podcast, and while some are great, many feature toothless stories that would rather go for a jump scare. While those can be great, I personally prefer horror with something to say. David and the crew seem to really understand and love the genre, and that comes through in the stories.
David I could go on and on about the great content, and how much of a fan I am. I mean really I could! But it was your message, this week that, sent me to tears. ( Not how you expect to respond to your horror podcast)😊 The message of support, and the commitment to proactively reaching out to people of color, made me a ball of emotions. I was enjoying your talents for free, as of today, I’m a paying member! ❤️ Thank you all for everything and ensuring that I get...no sleep. 🤣🤣
Every right to go any direction with a creators show they want but for me, I tune in for horror and suspense. This was a great place for that for years. The political messaging and virtue signaling make it impossible to suspend reality. If I wanted to be confronted with those shows then that’s what I’d select instead of a horror podcast.
I love this podcast! The stories are great and the production is fantastic. I listen to the seasons over and over again. Well worth it to pay to get the season passes if you love horror stories! Keep up the great work!!!
Stopped listening. Old stuff was good. Great. Fantastic. I think they hit a good stride a few seasons in and now they’ve stumbled badly. Bad stories mostly. When I first started going through the backlog about 2 years ago I was blown away consistently. Work turned into 8 hours of No Sleep. Then the stories got boring and repetitive. And by golly, the “empowering” stories started flooding in. I remember the one where the blind lesbian with her paraplegic girlfriend went to a mountain cabin with their mentally deficient friend and his little person boyfriend. Oh, the intersectionality. Anyway. I honestly think you guys got too big for your britches. Chill out, cut the crap stories. Take longer between seasons, whatever. QUALITY OVER QUANTITY. You know, a podcast like We’re Alive takes forever because they take the time to do it right. And it pays off. It’s the best scripted podcast I’ve ever heard because you can tell the whole cast and crew loved every dang second making it.
I listen bc scary is fun and escape. It brings me joy and tears that you made on black lives matter and dedication to inclusion. Wow....not expected and so appreciated. Ps creepy creepy
Awesome show. Been listening on and off for a couple years. Great stories by various authors. The productions great, voice actors are awesome. Overall just a really good podcast.
Some of the single narrator stories are pretty good . The full cast dramas are absolutely awful- like a middle school drama club.
Man, my long commute to work while listening to this podcast makes my drive a breeze. Love this podcast, been listening since they first came out and will always listen. David and crew are awesome! Thank you for the horror that slithers in my ears and paints a picture of the story while it’s being told.
The production in each story has improved so much from the earlier days, but I’m bored listening to these stories. I miss the eerie the suspense the thrill the fright. These bad boys can definitely put me to sleep now.
My favorite podcast.
I have been listening to the NoSleep Podcast for years, and I am more entertained and impressed every season. Most of the stories are smart and chilling, and they are beautifully produced. The Season Pass, especially, is a great bargain, for all the hours of gripping listening it offers. Highly recommended.
So I got recommended this podcast by a friend. It’s been 5 years since I’ve started listening. So thank you no sleep for the greatest podcast and even more scares. Please continue with your awesome work
I’ve seen so many good reviews of this podcast, and the stories seem so interesting!! Unfortunately I’m finding it really difficult to listen to. David Cummings’ “creepy” voice just sounds really forced and annoying. He talks so slowly and it’s overly dramatic and unnecessary. It takes away focus from the stories, which are the point of this. It sounds cool as an introduction, but just a short one, and it’s too much to listen to an hour of this each time. I’m really trying to listen; I want to like it. But I can’t get past his voice!
I listen to so many podcasts and have for years. But this is without a doubt my favorite podcast. Incredible job balancing production value with just good ole spooky storytelling. It’s been awesome to follow along over the last 6ish years or so as this podcast has developed. Incredible. Really can’t say enough. ❤️
Love the NoSleep Podcast! The stories are always great, with just the right amount of spooky. Phenomenal voice acting, great music, and great community overall. I’ve been a season pass subscriber for the past 2 seasons and it’s money well spent. Would recommend to anyone who likes horror and wants to help pass the time.
Skip the intros and commentary between stories, David Cummings is annoying. A lot of the stories are really good, but recently the quality has gone downhill massively.
I have listened to many podcasts in my lifetime and I cannot stress this enough this podcast is the best podcast you can find
I think this podcast is amazing my friend recommended it I heard my first episode last week and I’ve been listening to it every day of the week at work it definitely helps kill time and I get to tell my fiancé really good stories
I wanted to like this podcast, but Christ, the narrators are way too over the top. I listened to a couple from various seasons, but it was the same kind of thing. The latest story, where the two women are scuba diving, came off sounding like a never ending high school drama monologue. Let the stories themselves highlight the fear and drama, and maybe have the voice actors tone it down. Best of luck
Firstly..... Peter is the best of the voice actors on staff, Although I still eagerly listen to each official episode I’m growing more and more disappointed over time. This used to be my absolute top favorite podcast.... Overtime though there seems to be some obligatory SJW/virtue signaling inclusions being thrown in more and more frequently. As an example, I’m all for LGBTQ characters, but has anyone else noticed that such characters are showing up so frequently that it seems almost forced? They also recently did some kind of spin off series that was supposed to delve more deeply into certain topics, I apologize but I forget the details off hand. Regardless I was not at all impressed and felt some of the sex and gore seemed excessive without any real purpose. It seemed strangely glorified as though it was to represent some higher purpose... But seemed to fall flat. I just wish the team would go back to the good old days and tell me some scary stories to keep me up!
More hits in the earlier seasons; mostly misses after season 10 or so but they’ll sneak a good one in here and there so I still listen, just not as regularly as I used to. Introductions are long. I’d say about 7 minutes on average before the first story starts. I get that it’s free and I’m not entitled to anything, but it does detract from the overall experience of listening. Lately they’ve been doing this thing where they have adult actors performing children’s roles. Not only does it not sound convincing, but it’s so unconvincing that it’s actually funny, to the point that any atmosphere of horror or suspense goes right out the window, which kind of defeats the purpose of listening in the first place. Seriously, if so many of the stories are going to involve dialogue spoken by kids, they should get an actual kid or two to do it. Another thing they’ve started doing is having narrators (especially female narrators) start sobbing toward the climax of the story. It doesn’t happen on every story but it happens enough for it to not be effective, and maybe a little grating. They’ve also started doing a little bit of “virtue signaling.” Not a bad thing in itself, just not necessary, and also sometimes feeling a bit forced. Overall worth listening to, just not as much as it used to be.
I recommend binging by season. There are themes, especially in the later seasons. Not every story is for everyone, but there is something for everyone who finds themselves here. To the crew thank you, thank you, THANK YOU. So good. . . scary, often cheesy AF, but sometimes deeply disturbing, just the right mix. The performers are talented. Please keep doing what you do. Also the psychological mini season was inspired. Give whoever spearheaded it a raise.
Great stories. Been listening to it for years. I don’t have issues with peoples lifestyles but why is every episode now a lesbian love story gone wrong?
I have been listening for years. I can’t get enough. The actors are amazing...the stories are enthralling. I look forward to Saturday’s strictly for the No Sleep Podcast. One day a week, is not enough.
I found this podcast 2 years ago, and have been listening constantly. It has been my companion while at work, and while trying to sleep. In my opinion, it may be the best podcast on the internet. Iconic and lovable voice actors (Looking at you Peter) and the music and sound production is ON PAR! Its a shame that 5 is the most stars I can give! Also- The Whistlers story gave me nightmares for weeks and can still chill me TF out. Amazing story.
The No Sleep podcast has been a go to podcast for me for several years. I’ve listened to every episode, some twice or three times. An amazing inspiration as a writer, and ironically, the podcast I fall asleep with. Thanks for the hours of amazing content!
I haven’t been able to find another horror podcast that is comparable. Sets the bar high! Enjoyed it so much that I subscribed to listen to the full podcast each week.
One of my go-to podcasts that NEVER gets old. The stories are always good and I love the voice actors! If you love listening to horror stories or weird/disturbing/dark stories that are voiced with great quality you will love this podcast. Period.
An old reliable podcast that is often creepy, sometimes scary and seldom gratuitously disturbing.
I have loved this podcast for years. Never disappoints me. A must for all horror fans, and even just fans of good storytelling. So good.
Top to bottom this is an outstanding podcast - stories, host, actors, score and overall production. Very professional and well done!
Long time fan of the subreddit Nosleep. I found this podcast on a whim by searching “PenPal 1000vultures podcast” just to see if there was a read out loud coverage of it. Spoiler alert: there is on this very podcast. That is what brought me here. What kept me here is the excellent compilation of spooky stories. I love that this podcast always gives credit to the authors and the many narrators. I recommend this podcast to all horror, true crime, creative writing and morbid bedtime story fans. Also everyone. This podcast is great and you should listen to it.
Best podcast I have ever listened to, thanks for everything that you guys do!
Helps me fall asleep
This horror podcast is absolutely top notch Seriously I cannot oversell them. If you like horror - you have to try this podcast
This is the highest quality horror fiction podcast both in terms of production and writing. I have been faithfully listening for 3 years and I will continue to do so
Every story has something going for it. Some writers have the most amazing use of words, that weave the telling of events into something special that goes beyond, giving a richness to the story being told. The artist who portray the characters really deliver. Looking forward to more tapestry’s in words. A fairly new devotes fan. Bright greeneyes
NoSleep Podcast was the best discovery ever. The actors are amazing. I’m starting to feel like a true fan because now I get so excited when my favourites are on an episode. I love how this got started, and the hard work David and the team put in to get this to where it is. Some of the stories are just so unbelievably good. I have favourite stories and one of them was the very first story I heard. So meaningful. I literally put this on to go to sleep. It’s soothing in some ways (I guess I’m a true horror freak). Guys, you are rockstars. Tips for first timers - if it’s weird at first I’d suggest focus on an season and roll through it. Maybe a newer season. I loved Jessica’s The Decayed but that was an interim - still it was awesome. The only issue for me is some stories really don’t do it for me. I’d love maybe a briefing of the plot to anticipate what I’m in for and if I should skip. Keep doing this and um... like everyone else I would LOVE to voice act with you guys that’s my dream. AMAZING STUFF keep em coming!
I’ve listened to this podcast for years, can barely make it through an episode now. The story quality is wretched compared to what it used to be. I’d rather wait a month between episodes and improve quality than suffer through most of this. Such a shame when the voice actors are so beloved.
I have tried twice now during the quarantine to listen, I have listened before and could listen: the stories just aren’t grabbing in my opinion.
I have been listening to No Sleep for years now, and it does not disappoint! The voice acting and quality of the episodes is amazing! I have personally loved season 14 and all of the other previous seasons. It is well worth the money to purchase a season pass as well for those people complaining about the ads. I will continue to support this podcast for as long it is around!
I’ve been a long time fan of the show, but admittedly, the quality of these stories is something to be desired. Up until now, this podcast has been a place not only for entertaining scares but also interesting and thought provoking stories (pictures from a nightmare is one of the most powerful horror stories I have ever encountered). Horror is by far my favorite genre, but I favor literary stories over cheap, canned thrills. I give the show a five star rating overall, but I think that quiet a few of this season’s stories seem written by amateurs.
Been listening for years and as a huge fan of horror, this podcast truly feeds my addiction. Production and voice actors are above and beyond and great stories every episode. Thank you!
Love love love love LOVE the no sleep podcast been listening since season 1 and have season passes but good thing I didn’t get the season pass for this season it’s been pretty disappointing so far I’ll give it a 5/10 so far. Bummer. Hopefully the rest of the season picks up.
Hey! So I’ve been back and forth with leaving a review. I’ve listened to the NSP for almost 5 years. I work nights building military firearms, 8-12 hour shifts. This podcast kept me sane. However S14 is off, and I’m not exactly sure how to explain how it is off. The stories seem to be very flat—the acting is phenomenal as usual as are the effects, just the stories themselves seem to be lacking meat. In addition, the new placement of Ads this season is beyond distracting—and they’re LONG. Given my job, I can’t really keep taking my phone out to skip ads, so it does get a bit annoying when trying to enjoy a story and you anticipate the next tale to start but it’s just another HelloFresh sound bite. That being said, this IS a free podcast, so I can’t complain too much. Just definitely see a difference in quality this season versus seasons past.
Bells and whistles?!$& what happend to the quality of the stories?????? Come on david!!!! you guys could do this on a tape recorder, and give us decent tales; i wouldnt miss an episode. There are some this season that ive just stopped listening to; when the tragic memories of what this show use to be hit me. Seasons 1-12 i never missed a word. Still love the team😘 good theater cant disguise stories that are just not scary and far from spell binding
Love the stories, and hope to listen to The Decayed season 2 maybe in the future?
I’ve been a fan for years, I’ve got all the season passes and I’ve pre-ordered most the moment they go on sale. But this season (14) is really disappointing.. The stories aren’t up to par, none have really wow’d me like they have in the past. This wouldn’t be so bad if they hadn’t also up’d the price and promised “extra content” but have only released a few bloopers. My biggest complaint is they switched to a new platform to publish, which is confusing to use and doesn’t allow for MP downloads. This basically eliminates the main way I listen cuz I can’t have my phone at work, so it’s MP3 or bust.
This is it. Look no further. Satisfy yourself. All you need to do is press play.
Great voice acting, excellent music, and most of the stories chosen are great. The only complaint I have is the long, wasteful introductions and ad reads. It really seems like they spend a lot of time on their ads, incorporating the products into little anecdotes, etc. I just don’t care. The first story often doesn’t begin until 5-10 minutes into the podcast, that’s kind of unacceptable. All in all though, it’s the best scary stories podcast I’ve been able to find. I’ll fast forward through as many intros as it takes.
My favorite podcast
7 minutes into the show and he still hasn’t started the main body of content.
The nosleep podcast is my go to whenever i need something to listen to. The stories are well made and haunting. i recommend it to everyone!!!
My quarantine schedule has me going to sleep very early and waking when it’s still dark and my family is still sleeping. I pop my headphones in and listen, I’m frequently sitting in the dark, terrified by these stories. I love it!!
These Are so creepy, I’m obsessed. I prefer the realistic ones to the paranormal, personally. Find myself having to take breaks every once in a while because I panic at any creaking noise or shadow 😂. I love the creepy!! Keep up the good work!
The only podcast I listen to regularly
The team has made my night nightmarish. Every time I listen to it, I am scared to the point of no sleep.
I’m a big fan of horror! Love to listen to the episodes while getting ready for bed. All the voice actors and the host do such a great job at bringing the stories to life that I have actually gotten a bit scared while listening to some of the episodes!
I’ve listened to this podcast for years and I’ve never found one that I enjoy as much as this. The actors are super talented and the stories are new and creepy every time. It’s a great way to pass a car ride or even while I need to clean. Thanks for hanging out with me all these years no sleep <3
Wow!!! I’ve always listened but this serious is great. I wanna shout out the last story in this episode. When she became who she truly was I found myself pumping my fist. Would love to hear another part to that story. She’s my new favorite antagonist.
Love the show been a fan since season 4 couples year back and still get excited for each episode to be released
Long time listener. The mods of the fb group along with several members are very toxic and don’t like when you disagree with them but that has nothing to do with the show itself so it gets 5 stars! Great stories, mostly great actors (a few make me grind my teeth) and hours of horrifying entertainment!
Love the show. Seems like a real community of writers and voice actors who all care deeply about what they do.
All around great show!
The NoSleep Podcast is amazing, keep up the excellent content guys!
I’ve loved this podcast since I’ve discovered them a few years ago! I’ve tried listening to other horror-themed podcasts, but none compare to the NoSleep!
Love hearing about the cast and recognizing their voices in each new story. LOVED The New Decayed, especially episodes 2 and 5. I’ve been listening to this podcast for several years now, and it keeps getting better. This is the podcast that made me love podcasts. It’s clear the cast is very dedicated to the show and each other as a team. Looking forward to many more years! (And possibly more The New Decayed in the future??)
I’ve been listening to NoSleep for 5 years now and they just keep getting better and better with each season. Their stories are well produced, the music is always spot-on, and I love the creativity of each season’s theme! Thank you for always keeping me scared and sleepless!
I have been a huge fan since season one and a subscriber since season three. Seriously the best podcast I’ve ever listened to.
Amazing podcast, always great content.
I’ve been listening to them for at least a year or more. Amazing podcast, cast and crew. Overall great people and true to their craft.
Sometimes it’s good to be frightened
Love the podcast. Especially great to listen to while working. Creepy yet original tales.
I’ve been a listener for the past 4 years, but only recently became a season pass holder. It is worth every penny! Love supporting these talented story tellers. My boyfriend thinks I’m a weirdo, but it’s nice to know there are others who love the strange and scary storytelling art. Thanks for the great entertainment!
Literally the best horror podcast ever, full stop, hands down. Addicting. Truly disturbing and frightening at times, but also surprisingly soothing and comforting as well. David, the host, is like a friend and the other voice actors are amazing and talented to say the least. I never miss an episode, and if you really love horror, you won’t either.
This is one of the only podcasts that have managed to make me truly scared, during the day. I showed it to my sister the other day, she only listened to an episode for like 10 minute and was already asking me what it’s called because she really likes it. What I don’t tend to like, mor for personal taste, is the really gory stuff. For example that prankster story. But I still really like the podcast overall.
I have been listening to the NoSleep Podcast for a little over a year. I binged all of the older seasons and am finally caught up to date. This is a podcast where each episode just gets better and better over the seasons. I replay some of the older episodes when I want something interesting on in the background when I work. I do want to say though, the latest episode, episode 7 is phenomenal. Please keep doing what you’re doing!
I sincerely love this podcast so much. I have been listening for five years and I look forward to each new episode every weekend. The creators, voice actors, and authors of this show work so hard to produce high quality content and it truly shows. I went to their live show last year and they are just as amazing in person as they are on the podcast. I would highly recommend this to any horror lover. Also, spring for the season pass membership. You will not be disappointed!
Been listening since episode Season 1 ep1. Glad it’s still going and going strong. Better than ever!
This show has great voice actors, effects, stories. I look forward to every new episode.
I’ve been listening to No Sleep for a few years now (honestly thought I wrote a review long ago) and ever since I ran out of episodes to binge I look forward to Sunday’s like never before. I love that every episode brings new horrors and goosebumps. No two stories are alike and the voice actors bring every episode to life in a way that makes it feel hyper realistic. I personally love all things creepy and odd and this podcast has been in my top 3 favorites since I found it. Be warned though, ‘...there will be No Sleep’.
They always keep me in rapture. The entertainment is nonstop.
Hands down my favorite podcast! Always look forward to the new episodes each week and I usually relisten through out the week!!
I use podcast to sleep and dream to keep up the good work.
In my top 5 of all time greatest podcasts.
This podcast is the best scary story podcast I have found so far !! Love the stories !! Love the story tellers!!
I am obsessed with this podcast, I have listened to every free episode and bought my first season pass for the new season. I anticipate a new episode every week and can’t get enough stories from the wonderful cast and crew at The Nosleep Podcast. I share the podcast with all my horror and scary story loving friends and many of them got hooked just like me.
I love this podcast and this is also the first I’ve ever listened to. I also love how you all always make the adds into a story and fun to listen to, too! I love all of the actors and you guys always give them the most appropriate roles, and some of you have really creepy and cool voices.
Stories are lame lately, IMO
I came here from r/nosleep expecting some horrible fan made dubs to creepy pastas but was pleasantly surprised! The intro is great, not confusing at all and even provides time markers for easy listening! All in all, great voice actors, great placement of stories and great host! Will be buying a season pass!
This is my favorite podcast to listen to. Always a pleasure to listen
I started listening less than a year ago, but I’m almost through all of the episodes already. I’ll definitely be a season pass member on the next season!
I’ve been listening for years, but I am totally impressed your podcast posting extra free episodes for free!! While other podcast are capitalizing on this nation wide quarantine!! Bravo!!!
I love this show a lot and listen to it on a nightly basis. What keeps me coming back is undoubtedly the sound design. Many stories are just ok and the host’s voice acting isn’t all that enticing in my opinion, sometimes kinda hokey, but man are the episodes well produced.
This is by far the best fictional horror storytelling podcast online. I have listened to a wide variety of horror podcasts and none of them even compare to the quality and production value of this one. I could go on and on describing everything I love about the weekly stories but just subscribe if you like horrifying and suspenseful audio storytelling. It's free, what do you have to lose except maybe a little sleep...😴
My favorite podcast, I became an instant fan in 2018 and never missed an episode since then. The new decayed was great also..Keep it up!
Not very interesting and terrible quality. Step it up please
You guys are amazing! Thanks for the bonus episodes during this crazy time! Love it 💙
Love this podcast! Thank you for adding a bonus episode during the self quarantine/pandemic time. It was much needed Always fun and spooky stories!!!
Bought at the back seasons.
They were unreal. More cumbersome to produce though, I get it.
Please make it easier for those who purchase season passes to access them via a more accessible platform. It opens to a web page I have to keep open in order to listen, and the information as to the time of each story isn’t listed on that webpage. Maybe it could be done through Spotify? I don’t know but I’m really frustrated by how difficult it is to listen to the full episodes.
Loved loved loved this episode!! Totally forgot about my favorite childhood board game until it was brought back to life in this podcast. Love the twist the author put on this happy little game
This is the best horror podcast out there. The stories are engaging, the actors are fabulous and the sound quality, theme music and sound effects are superb! Keep going strong!!!
I started out listening to D
I know this may seem weird but I love this podcast as it provides a salve to the truly scary and stressful moments of real life. I have health issues, one of my sons has severe health issues, and work seven days a week most weeks. I by no means have a bad life but it is a hard life and these stories bring me incredible joy and can take my mind off of things during the hardest of days. I say all of this to share how grateful I am for all the effort and hard work your team puts in. For me it’s not just entertainment but an important tool for mental stability and endurance. So again thank you very very much.
So they only tell half of the stories? I don’t get it. How was the baby eating the eyes of the grandma, why was there a dead dog in the hotel room, why was the basketball player being pulled down into the floor?
I listen to this at work and it’s helped me get through the boring, monotonous stuff much better than music that I was constantly shuffling. By the end of the podcast I’m surprised an hour has passed already. I also listen when I have migraines and it helps me stop focusing on the pain while the medicine kicks in. I’m currently going backwards as well since I’m all caught up on the free episodes so I’d say a season pass would be well worth the money! The stories are all pretty great and the voice acting really helps you get into it. I’m always excited for new episodes!
This is a fantastic podcast! Great narrators for really good stories- you won’t be sorry!
I love walking my dog with the No Sleep Podcast! It’s best at dusk when I can’t tell if it’s the audio or actual bushes rustling at my side. And with a little screening in advance, I’ve enjoyed some episodes with my kids at the campfire. Fun scares galore!
These stories totally creep me out! They’re perfect for listening to in the dark!
Heard about this through Pinterest and I’ve been binge listening ever since. As a avid horror fan this really feeds the need.
I have been a NSP Season Pass member for several seasons now and this podcast continues to be my absolute favorite for the stories, voice acting, sound and production. I personally enjoyed The New Decayed mini-series, but newcomers to the podcast should know those episodes were intended to be a stand-alone mini-season and they deliberately included content not normally featured on the NSP (sexual/body horror/otherwise triggering content) to test and see if there was an audience for it. It was never intended to be a new direction for the NSP, more of a test to see if there might be demand for a separate podcast that DOES include such content. Be aware if you listen to the New Decayed that those episodes are very different from the regular podcast and they may not be your cup of tea. The good news is there are 13 FULL SEASONS (and the new Season 14 just starting!) full of amazing stories that you most likely will enjoy immensely if you enjoy horror podcasts!
I absolutely LOVE this podcast! It’s kept me company for years now on long days at work, long commutes, while I’m doing housework, etc. There are so many great narrators, and so many great stories! This is seriously the BEST podcast I have EVER come across!
I love these kind of podcast and this one actually stand out of all the other podcast alike. Please dont stop uploading episodes i love it so much!!
The best part about this podcast is that the stories presented are so diverse that at least some of them are bound to be perfect for you, no matter where your fears lurk.
I’ve been a faithful listener for 6 years and season 14 started with one of the best episodes in awhile. Pure ghost stories are my fave and y’all do them so well. Great start NoSleep Crew!!!
I love this podcast and it’s twist and turns in horror storytelling it’s my favorite
One of my favorite podcasts!
The New Decayed is a poor addition to this podcast. The older horror stories like “The Mummer Man” we’re far superior content to the new, more pornographic direction. It’s not shocking or visceral, it’s lazy and lacks creativity. I hope to see a return to form. Again, The New Decayed is a disappointment. Pornographic without purpose and uncreative (called back an old conspiracy theory about the Berenstain Bears). Another miss on 2/9/2020. The pornographic content should be spun off into a separate purpose-built podcast. Encountering it on this podcast will make me seek out content elsewhere.
Do yourself a favor and listen the new decay mini series it’s brilliant no sleep is dead... R.I.P. 👎🏼
Some of the stories are alright, some are just garbage. No good way to know what you’re going to get as some episodes contain both! Shock value as well as gross/gory/dark and triggering aspects are not always bothersome, but they also do not equal good storytelling. Happy hunting.
This has to be the weirdest scary podcast I’ve ever listen to. I’m hooked now my sisters hooked and all my nephews are hooked. Raising a whole new group of weirdos. Thank you for keeping me entertained keep up the great work. I had no idea the podcast could get better and then it did. A-Maz-Ing!!!!!
Just the best horror podcast
Some stories are really good!! Some are so so but not awful. I will say, the old cleaning lady in the church story! Wow!! Love love!! I could not stop listening! There are others I can say I really liked as well! Maybe get some feed back, tweek This some and make a podcast of your own called “The New Decayed”. Great way to find out if this is something you can do on your own by keeping the podcast going while the others are on tour! Perfect idea! Keep Working at it! Don’t give up! I’m still listening! Again! That Church story!! Yes!!
I recently purchased my second season pass - this time is season 10...and I am blown away! The valentines special and I am awe struck. I’m a grown women sniffing from a story. The writing, acting, production all is award winning stuff! Thank you NoSleep Team - what a blessing!
I have been a faithful listener now for almost 4 years, and a season pass holder of at least 4 seasons as well. It has been well worth my time and money! I have enjoyed it so much. I listen to it on long drives, or when I am cleaning at work, or when I can’t drift off to sleep at night. It resonates with me, but does not over step. It did feature more crude stories in the early seasons but I think that was just the quality they had access to, now it is top notch stuff. I love the increase in LGBT content that helps me feel included, as a lesbian. I was motivated to finally write a review while this “New Decayed” season is airing because I have seen the unhappy reviewers and I question their taste in stories. I love the new stories and enjoy seeing this podcast stretch it’s boundaries. I want to thank each contributor, each narrator, and David Cummings as the show’s heart. Y’all have made a great show and I wish you a terrific future of at least 20 more seasons! >.<
I love this podcast not every single story is good but I mean there are so many of course some people will not like every single episode but it’s definitely worth listening to.
My commute is an hour 15 min one way. I found this podcast and it has made my long drive to and from work a lot more enjoyable, or at least tolerable 😉
I work third shift and I listen to this podcast everytime. It helps make the night go past a little smoother and quicker. I love the direction that you are taking this podcast with the new Decayed stories. The casting couch was my favorite one because it was so in depth with the details and description. I could see everything that was said in my mind like I was actually watching it on t.v. Keep up the great work.
I’ve been a listener for about a year now and really enjoyed the ride, unfortunately it devolved into a light pornography podcast. Intimately describing two lesbians naked bodies and their sexual intimacy was so irrelevant to the storyline and served as nothing more than some strange attempt to cater to someones fetish. I like the stories and the new ones have an occasional hit, but I feel it incredibly unnecessary to listen to someone describe an orgasm in vivid detail.
My son introduced me to this podcast a little over a year ago. I absolutely love it & can listen to it over & over again. It’s my favorite way to ignore life. Thank you for what you do. It is truly art!
The earlier seasons (1-6) are consistently more scary, with slightly lower quality but that adds to the horror. The recent shows up until the decayed are more dramatic and abit cringy. The sound is amazing and performance is great but it feels more like a play then something that gives shivers. Less drama and more story! Easily give 5 stars
While I like most of the voice acting in this podcast, the story writing seems pretty much as described in the title. Predictable plots, not-too-scary-now subject matter, and above water characters make up most stories. This leads to a podcast that’s good for the casual listener, but for those who like to be unsettled and thrown for a loop by horror, it leaves something to be desired. All together not a bad effort though.
The earlier episodes I would have given 4/5 stars. Recently I’d give it 1/2. I used to LOVE listening to the stories. Sometimes there are some really good ones. But these weird skits they’re doing in between are so cringey. I’m not sure I can keep listening. David, please read some of your recent reviews and go back to the good ole’ days! I HATE dropping once great podcasts
I love the Decayed stories! It’s such a breath of fresh air and it brings a different type of horror I found interesting! I found the Casting Couch story the best of the Decay mini episode because this one off character that we probably would never hear from again was the most in-depth character I’ve heard/read in a long time.
Love this podcast anyway, but REALLY enjoying the “experimental” episodes !! Would love to see them turn into their own podcast !!!
Cringe. Reddit tier socjus injected everywhere. Corny stories. Terrible in every single way.
This is a great great podcast especially if you like scary stories. But these most recent episodes of the mini series, The New Decade, have been awesome. I would love to see it as it’s own podcast and would subscribe in a heartbeat.
Fun, scary, and highly entertaining!
Scaring myself is my favorite thing do! And no one does it better than No Sleep. Best stories, best voice talent. After 2 years listening, I have my faves (oh Peter Lewis!) David C never stop making No Sleep! My dream is to be a voice actor on your show!
So I love the stories, voice acting and production, but you guys are doing way too much between stories these days and the content is nowhere as good as the stories. After a few months of having to jump around looking for the stories (your times in the info are never accurate), I dropped off for months. I love you guys, but please stick to the acting.
No Sleep is the best horror podcast I’ve found and the mini series the New Decayed is just as great. I love the themed episodes, my favorite being the story dealing with postpartum depression. Thanks for setting the bar so high for horror fiction podcasts!
Loved that episode. Felt like I was living that last story because of the details. Great job guys 🤙🏿✊🏿
I subscribed to this podcast because I heard an ad about it on another podcast. I went back to the beginning of the feed and I've been listening to three every couple of days. I'll be sad when I get caught up and have to wait for the new episodes to post. I love New Decayed series!! Great way to fill the time between seasons.
It is refreshing
No thank you porn go away. come back good horror
I am a huge fan of early Nosleep ...It started getting a little intense Thru the years . I sorta stopped listening... often checking back to hear a story here and there ... hoping for season 1/2 style stories !! Needless to say the vibe with this pre season is awesome... please do more !!!
Definitely harkens back to early seasons and I love that. Chills all through day and night.
This is worth a listen if you want to pass the time with stories that are reliably spooky, if not so reliably well-written. Funny sophomoric comedic relief is mixed in with lame sophomoric comic relief. Insightful explorations of timely issues are often side by side with boring politically correct attempts to be “relevant.” A good example of this is the uneven first episode of The New Decayed. The first story is wonderfully written and performed. The conceit of having addiction being a motley crew of ghosts is nearly perfect. The second episode is less well-written, but still works as body horror. The third episode, despite all the knowing asides, really is whiny. It’s constantly reaching for pathos but the chatty writing just can’t achieve the impact desired. It’s less a story that should be published than a caption on an Instagram mom’s post.
Was I just listening to porn?!? I could not even finish the story. Warning would be Nice next time. I know y’all are trying New Decay Podcast. That story was a little too much.
The best episodes yet! I love these thoughtful, nuanced stories. IPlease never stop.
Love this. Can't wait for each new episode
Loving new decay, the quality of horror here has gone up from recent episodes of the usual season. However, almost five minutes of disclaimers about how if you are disturbed, don’t listen is a bit much. It’s a horror podcast, it’s pretty clear some things may be disturbing. The warning on the usual season episodes is more than enough. For the first episode of New Decay it’s 12 minutes before we even get to the stories. I just skip through all of it but again the disclaimers and all of the mental health resources seem a bit pandering.
The epitomy of an epic long lasting podcast that has stood the testiment of time through the years. The cast and crew continue to rivet and seduce you with their tantalizing tales of horror. Let their melodious voices of terror slip into your ever delicate thoughts ever to be lost through the miasma of despair. No sleep awaits.
Like the mini series all but the 2 ending stories are dreadful. The never ending monologue. Shut up shut up shut up. I have invested so much time listening,that I have to be there for the payoff. So psycho mom sees mr strangles comes to the shrink’s office. And the last one I did not think you could make sex boring but it did shut up. So now Squishy tentacle things start an army of sex workers. Please make it no sleep again
Always a fan of NSP but have to say I truly appreciate the mini series and the cast taking a chance with some material that might make some uncomfortable. News flash people and those saying it’s gone too far, life is not always comfortable and can be downright raw at points. Keep doing exactly what you guys are doing !
Seeing some hate on here for the second episode of the New Decayed mini series, but have to say I loved it! It was very, very weird, and disturbing. Also a very realistic portrait of a narrator in the Autism Spectrum. Good horror highlights the things that make us uncomfortable, and this episode did that for me.
The show was great for a while but now there has been an emphasis on sleazy stories and increased foul language. Really disappointing because they are wasting their voice talent.
The second episode is awful!!! Bring back no sleep
This show used to be so amazing. Seasons 2-8 are the best. The last few seasons though, are so cringe worthy I’ve had to stop listening. The writing used to be so good and actually disturbing and scary, now it’s like they take stories off of 15 year olds tumbler pages and somehow think they’re good enough to put up. I would love to hear this podcast back to the way it is with great stories, not cheesy, raunchy, pandering, cringe worthy stories. The last episode this week was absolutely horrible and I couldn’t take it anymore. Not sure if I’ll be listening at all anymore, super disappointed. Update: The newest episode was horrible. It was basically listening to porn and was absolutely disgusting. I’m officially done with you guys.
Look no further for this is the spookiest podcast around! All the voice actors have a true talent. It feels like you are watching a movie. The music/sounds make it feel like it’s happening all around you. I love how it gives me goosebumps. The stories will make it hard to sleep at night.
New Decayed is greatness!! Well done Ladies!! I’m hooked big time. I am certainly looking forward to each episode. Thanks it’s a breathe of fresh air... I’m diggin it. Keep it going you are appreciated. -Jay
Ngl it has lost its luster after the story “Whitefall”. Anything before that is pretty good. That story still has my grip but after that has a loose grab to me :(
I love your podcast I commute an hour to work and an hour back home I love listening to your podcast during my drive it makes the travel go by so much faster because of how exciting and scary how each episode keeps me on my toes thank you look forward to your next episodes Thank you !
I’ve never been a fan of podcast, now that I’ve listened to the new mini series no sleep has, I am ENCHANTED! I cried, I got scared, and I can’t get enough. Please, do yourself a favor, and listen. Just. Listen. The background noise, the amazing storytelling. I can’t stop.
I am a forever fan of The NoSleep Podcast. The New Decayed elevated my level of appreciation. The stories are told with brutal honesty of what it is to suffer with mental health. Thank you to the creators. Job well done!!
This is the best podcast of it's kind! Never a dull moment. I've had to look back over my shoulders more than once while listening to these stories! Highly recommend. 5 stars :)
It's lost its touch over the last few seasons. Ran out of good material. The host is also a awful person irl.
I just across this podcast a few weeks ago. I absolutely love it. Creepy and captivating! I really like that they tell you where each story starts in the description of each episode.
This podcast is usually amazing. However, season 13 episode 24 was absolute garbage. Made my ears bleed and skin crawl. Putrid.
Creative and chilling
Been listening since season 1 and will continue being a season pass holder. It’s the total of the work, not just a season better than others, that keeps me tuning in every week. The voice actors all bring something spectacular to the cast, yes there are the upper class-men/women who’ve been with Nosleep since beginning. But there’s new blood with each season who make their own place in the lineup. Stories worthy of production have to be hard to come by, so I understand they all can’t be homeruns. Nevertheless, David and crew ALWAYS put out a top notch production. I want to say Thank you to all Nosleep crew for what they do.
A highly well produced and extremely entertaining horror podcast. I recommend to any fans of good story telling.
I don’t know why but I am so calmed by listening to them, but also scared at other. Some of them make me creeped out for a couple of hours, but I still love listening to them. I am only on season 2 but I’m addicted!!!
I used to listen to this podcast nonstop hours at a time and I couldn’t get enough of the unique stories voiced by amazing actors. Unfortunately I have been really put off by the really long intros that they have started doing. They usually make no sense to me and it makes me frustrated that even though I actively listen, I can’t grasp the meaning of it at all. The stories have appeared to become more comedic instead of horrific or intriguing. I had been considering purchasing content until finally catching up to present day with you guys. I’ll still listen every week, but mostly in hopes that the podcast will be revised using all of the frustrated reviews calling for a refocus!
This podcast is so important to me, I listen to it everyday at work to get through the long nights. When you’re in a place that feels alone and scary, it’s wonderful to hear the amazing voice actors crooning horrifying stories that make real life seem like a piece of cake. Every Sunday when they post a new episode, I’m excited to get to work and put my ear buds in and see which awesome voice I’m going to hear, and what kind of fright I’m going to endure. Keep it up, Nosleep team! You’re making a big difference for a lot of people.
The voice actors, stories, and production are all incredible. I prefer the newer seasons over the first ones, but they are all great.
The execution is absolutely perfect for this type of podcast. Each episode of collection of “Creepypasta” stories, not only fully voice acted (with sound amazing ambience and sounds), but also tied together by a host and narration. Incredible voice acting and an amazing podcast. I don’t right reviews for most things. But this podcast deserves praise. It hits all the right buttons for a horror fiction podcast👍🏼👍🏼
Perfect thing to keep you on your toes for those long drives or just to freak yourself out!! Love it and I’m just getting started!!
I started listening during season 6 and I got to watch this pod rise into the glory of its golden age. And god was it glorious. Unfortunately that means I watched it fall too. Starting around season 9 the story quality got very cheesy. They started charging more for season passes. I wouldn’t mind paying it if the quality increased too but it’s the same quality with worse stories. And I hate how they did the most recent combination of the Christmas episode and the season finale. The season finales were the best part of the pod. They reduced it to a low rent Christmas production infested with ads that break the contiguity that I loved so much. It seems like profit is becoming more important than the listeners
Halfway through season 12. Consistently have loved this show. It’s obvious from the reviews that a portion of listeners come from narrow minded backgrounds when it comes to sexuality and orientation. Proud of David and the cast of embracing progressive and inclusive stories even when they lose a (crappy) portion of listeners. Keep going!
One of the first podcast I’ve subscribe to and it has survived for years now lol, if it’s not good you will have to go...I love this horror podcast!!! My favorite voice actor is Nikolle ❤️. Her voice is so mature, unique, and absolutely mesmerizing. Well thought out/ put together storylines. Thanks for your hard work.
I’ve consistently listened to this podcast for years and sometimes I don’t know why because I feel like the stories chosen are consistently awful. In the early days there was always at least one decent story in the show, but now they are all just gross - overly sexual plots, gory descriptions, and just crass dialogue. I think I am mainly drawn to the voice actors. I like to hear their voices but I find myself disinterested in anything being said. Unfortunately- this is THE only horror podcast I know that consistently produces content with good actors and sound quality. Just pick better stories! Seriously whose choosing these garbage stories??? Don’t you see a pattern in these reviews??
Stories have become more about social commentary and less horror... I hate skipping half an episode of a just because my favorite voice actors wanna preach.
Too much introductory dialogue. Stories started off good season 3 and earlier, but now it’s rare to get a good story in the collection. Too many stories try t go for the “gross” factor and are just off-putting in general. Yeah, I know there is a warning, but most of the stories seem to go this route.
Awesome podcast. Intros are too long, but that’s ok. Stories are worth it. Update 12/8/19 The last season has been a letdown, especially the most recent episode. Literally skipped past the 90% of the first story hoping for redemption later on, but no. Forcing myself to finish the whole thing. 30 mins and counting 😓Guys, since July I’ve binged all 13 seasons and I just knew I’d found podcasting GOLD. New listeners, start from the beginning or, unfortunately, you’ll probs miss how great this podcast once was.
The first 10ish seasons were fantastic. Great stories that I still think about. And then...dull stories that aren’t scary, and it takes almost 30minutes now for the actual stories to start?? Used to be my favorite podcast but I no longer listen.
i’ve been listening for years and every episode is better than the last. a job incredibly well done
Confused why this podcast is so highly rated. It’s okay, at best. Oh well. To each their own!
The NoSleep Podcast consistently puts out well-produced content. The free version is incredible—you really get a lot without having to fork anything over for the paid version. If you choose to pay extra for a season pass AND it works for you, you really do get your money’s worth. However, unfortunately I’ve discovered that if you encounter issues with your season pass, you’re kind of out of luck. I’ve been experiencing significant issues with my season pass feed and there doesn’t seem to be a dedicated technical support team. I’ve sent multiple emails and even reached out via social media over the course of several weeks, but have never received a response. The whole experience has really put me off of ever recommending the season pass to anyone else. In fact, I would go as far as recommending the free version only. It’s just a shame because there really is the opportunity to get so much more content. I would love to be able to amend this review at a later date if anyone who works on the podcast happens to notice this review. Otherwise, buyer beware.
Season 13. Episode 23!!! The lady who speaks treasure is one of the best visual stories I’ve ever heard!! Bravo!!
Old stuff used to be great, now I hope you like advertisements with half written stories in between cause that’s all you’ll get.
I overall enjoy this podcast but the original voice actor is so obnoxious.
I love the emotion and character that is put into each narration, keep it up guys
The stories are top-notched, and fun to listen to. They are great for entertaining my family in long car rides, but they get ruined by the unnecessary and detracting profanity.
Okay, I love your scary ads and I don’t mind at the start of the podcast, but... in the middle? Yeah that was annoying the ads being in the middle got me out of the mood and was a bit off. The stories were wonderful and the sounds fantastic. But keep the ads at the start. I always listen.
As a preteen who loves to scare herself I think I found the perfect podcast for me
ive been listening since season 9 and oh my god when i tell you i got hooked- ive listened to every single episode of this show at least twice. the acting is insanely good (i also just love the voice actors voices!!) and the stories are amazing. im always so excited for the new episode on sunday :D p.s i love how yall have stories with lgbt characters!
The acting and production values are top notch as they always have been. However, the writing quality of the stories selected are abysmal. Cringe-worthy dialogue and abrupt endings that will leave you scratching your head... A shame, considering the earlier seasons had much higher quality writing.
I’ve been a fan since season 3, went back & listened to everything since season 1, invested in all of the season passes (WORTH EVERY PENNY) & now have a library of the best enactments of modern horror out there. I’ve introduced so many people to No Sleep that I have created a group of friends (& moms) that discuss every week’s new episode. Bravo, David & company. David conducts the crew like a symphony, seeming always to play to the individual actor’s strengths, & yet constantly the listener is surprised to hear their versatility. You can actually hear their range grow with every season. This troupe of ever expanding talent gives voice to some of the creepiest, scariest, most clever stories we’ve had the pleasure of consuming since those produced by the masters of the short horror story from the last century. KEEP IT COMING!!
I am listening to the earlier podcasts. I just started, and I like the stories except the voice. He sounds like randy from South Park and it gets annoying, but whatever. I keep reading reviews on how they push leftist political views later on in the show. Once I start hearing that, I am out. Keep opinions to yourself in entertainment.
This is such fun to listen to—even the ads are thoughtfully written and often quite funny. Nice production values too.
No sleep is amazing, it helps pass my long hours making the welding come easily. I love how long each of the podcasts last for my 10 hour shifts!
This is a podcast I’ve listened to for 5 years straight now. I always catch myself listening to all the old stuff. I think the voice acting a great. What I have a problem with is the last few seasons have been really lacking lately. The stories are more just emotional now really, no horror element to them. A lot of the stories now are just the same voice actor crying in the story and that’s it. Dnt get me wrong the voice acting is amazing but I think something has to give with the writers. It just doesn’t seem the same anymore. I’m no longer getting “frightened and disturbed” from these stories. Now it just ends up with the episode ending and me wondering what the hell I just listened too. I mean a guy stuck in the same football play over and over? It’s turning into all sifi with no horror to it at all, and I can’t even really remember anything else from the last seasons. Nothing is rememberable anymore. Anyways this review is getting long. I do like the podcast and I will continue to listen to it. The writing is getting lazy.
This has to be my favorite podcast of all time, and I began listening during season ten, and caught up in about a month through constant bingeing. Thanks for the spooks!
I love this podcast so much and I’m never disappointed by the stories and creative aspects, I love the voice actors so much I love how I can visualize everything as the story is being told!
I used to LOVE this podcast, but the long introductions and weird stories in the beginning are hard to follow and are not as interesting as you think they are. The old format of turning an ad into a short scary story was perfect! What changed and why?
This podcast is my favorite thing, I listen whenever I get a chance. I can’t recommend it strongly enough to anyone who enjoys horror. The host is an amazing personality and all of the authors are so very talented. Brace yourself.
I am now completely up to date on this podcast. I drive a lot for work, and this podcast is the perfect company. I recommend this podcast to everyone who finds themselves bored doing mundane tasks like driving. No Sleep has also shown me many other fantastic horror podcasts like Darkest Night, Horror Hill, and Chilling Tales for Dark Nights. The ads are not annoying, but I am considering buying some season passes just to get all the stories.
They have really gone down hill. The weird sexual stories and graphic child abuse and gore are cheap and gross. We came for the spooky stories with thick story lines and deep plots. Not this.
I love this podcast and wait for it every week. But this dialogue from the compound or whatever it is is unbearable. I hate to say it because everything else about this podcast is perfect. The dialogue is not scary, not funny and annoying. Please keep doing the awesome stuff you’re doing.
Love this podcast .. it’s also free so save your whining for something you pay for you bunch of ingrates
Hi, NoSleep crew, My name is Gabriel. I am an aspiring author and I was wondering if I need to qualify to be able to enter one of my stories into the show. If I were to write a story that the podcast really really likes, would you guys be able to use it in the podcast or do I need to have some kind of degree? Anyways I love the pod, haven’t missed a day of listening in months.
The scary thing about Nosleep Pod is how bad the now 30 minute intro is! Another is that they must actually think it’s good or that people like it. No one likes it! The material is soo cringe and bland. All great things must come to an end. Even the best horror podcast will die one day 😢 RIP Nosleep podcast
I’ve listened to every episode. Even had friends who have written a few stories. I absolutely love it and love the voice actors/stories. Good job guys for growing into what this has become!
Went horribly campy. You take a whole chunk of the podcast for an intro (which we all probably skip through) which could be better used telling an actual story. I get that it might be annoying only for the free listeners, but the free content shouldn't have dropped from 1.5 hours to 45 mins
I love this podcast and what it does. I liked the way it started out better than what it is now. I feel like the current stories and focus on voice acting over horror reading is a bit disheartening. There’s almost a silly tone to it now that washes over and disengages me as a listener. That being said, it’s a great, professionally produced and well-acted podcast in its own right and always worth keeping in my feed. Edit: Boring garbage.
Once again I can say that this podcast used to be worth every second of my time. No longer. It seems as though the cast has gotten too big for its britches and has decided to push its leftist propaganda on the listeners. Virtue signaling and unnecessary character descriptions that go out of the way to include the fact that they have some sort of mental disorder or some sort of sex problem. Season one and two were great. After the 2016 election it seems that they had a chip on their shoulder and it completely ruined this podcast. The real horror here is the terrible result of this podcast.
I can’t figure out the point of the 15-20 minute long intros. I never can figure out where the stories start. Stories are normally decent but I don’t want to spend 5 minutes trying to find the end of the intro every episode
Love the show but not the 16 minute intro to hear the first author.
LOVE the readings, background music, sound effects, etc. Love it. I listened to the Halloween episode and I don’t know if they always have the hosts involved in some spooky meta-story where they’re playing the tapes for the audience but I thought that part was OK. The hosts overacted a bit but whatever. As for the stories themselves (content), they’re alright. They don’t really scare me though, which I think is just a product of the fact that it’s hard to scare people with a verbal story, even with music, because you can’t use the jump scares that Hollywood does. Also, some of them are flat, and as someone who consumes very little horror and gets scared easily, make me think “oh come on! You can do better than that!” in regards to the author.
This is my go to favorite podcast! I love all of their stories and voice acting. I listen to this almost everyday, and I never grow tired of it. I highly recommend this podcast.
Underrated and it seems like you guys put in too much effort for to little popularity
Truly the best out there. Cannot stress enough how amazing. My bluetooth hearing aids are powerful, but I’ve noticed their recent episodes had the music loud, making the dialogue hard to hear. This is especially true for their live shows. Perhaps they can release transcripts? Regardless, I look forward to every Sunday. I used to work overnights and every Sunday morning around 12am, the episode would drop and it was the highlight of my nights. Thank you for all the work you do, and keeping me company on those long nights.
I used to be a diehard fan of this podcast; I started around season 8, and had a season’s pass for 10-12. But, now, I’ve barely listened in months... I used to enjoy the mixed bag of stories because there were absolute gems like “The Whistlers” and “The Tall Dog” mixed throughout some more mediocre stories. The recent seasons have had a lack of these stories and far more utterly amateur ones. I really would love to get back into the show again, but I think they’re going to need to slow down and re-evaluate how they chose what makes it on-air first.
Loved the Halloween episode this year! The stories were great and loved how it all came together. Thank you very much for your dedication and efforts. Truly great work!!
No podcast in this genre even comes close to No Sleep in voice acting quality, story creativity, or consistent output of new content. The best horror podcast by a mile.
I’m coming in way late since there have been a lot of seasons that i haven’t listened to, but after listening to several episodes i have to say, “meh”. The parts that are good are reeeeeeally good, with Top notch voice acting and production and sound effects. But the parts that are bad are super awful. Just unforgivably stupid. So bad that i think maybe they’re trying to make it bad on purpose in some attempt to be silly or funny, but it just doesn’t come off as anything but cringeworthy. I’m gonna keep listening though, fast forwarding through the stupid parts. So i can’t say it’s not worth it.
Used to be great. But I can’t take another full story with an “adult playing a kid” voice. It’s unbearable. The story content seems to have dried up as well.
I’ve been an active listener since season 3 in Season 5 the Search and Rescue stories caught my interest and I went and bought my first season pass. I love the choice, I now own them all. The great stories and extra episodes are love.
Hands down, The best horror stories podcast ever!
I absolutely love this podcast. But after listening to season 12 ep 25. I am obsessed. That was one of the best episodes I have listened to so far. The voices & details that go along into these stories are phenomenal. Huge fan. And I 100% recommend this episode. Truly stuff out of my nightmares!
A few stories are really good but a lot of them are hard to get through. I end up just skipping through them. Narration is okay; some voices are just really hard to listen to. I think I’ll pass on this one...
This is the end all -be all of horror story podcasts. I listened to a story about a monster attacking a subway car and couldn’t take the subway for a full week. I live in New York City. I absolutely love it.
I stumbled upon the no sleep podcast about 4 years ago for whatever reason. I can still remember the very first episode I listened to which was about Obscurity Man, great episode by the way. Ever since then the No Sleep podcast has been part of my nightly routine while falling asleep. Such great narration and an overall creepy vibe to get snuggled up in bed with. Major props to the creator and director David Commings for taking that big leap years ago and turning this into a full-time masterpiece!
Love the stories and the voice actors , though would be better without the idiotic back story
Penpal series is by bar the scariest one yet keep them coming!
In really can’t quite put my finger on it, but something about this podcast has changed. It was once one of my favorites. I discovered NS a few seasons ago and went back to the beginning. I enjoyed them so much I purchased a few seasons. But I’ve stopped buying the last couple due to a decline in the quality. Not sure what it is - perhaps the longer, disjointed intros, or the cringe-worthy child voices, or a shift in the quality of the writing/content they chose to produce - but NS is no longer as entertaining. I find myself fast forwarding to the next story and finally giving up when I hit another dud. Hopefully, they can regroup and recapture their magic. It is supposed to be scary, like adult level campfire tales, less juvenile goosebumps. Please dial back to the good old days and make your content king again.
This is by far my favorite podcast. I run a mail route from 2am-6am every night and this os the only thing I listen to anymore. I love the stories and how it feels like I’m right there with it. Been so scared a few times I’ve jumped seeing rabbits on the side of the road and had to look at trees a little harder to make sure they weren’t monsters lol.
The first 3 seasons are untouchable. 4-7 is great still. Since then it’s been on a steady decline while still being better than most of other options for scary stories. The podcast however does not take fan suggestions they deleted the subreddit and monitor the Facebook page for anything that isn’t positive. It seems the drop in content comes from using the same writers over and over and David not picking the stories himself from Reddit. Not everyone has an eye for good horror. David does but he’s tied up growing the show which I can understand. I just hope they’ll take a different approach to story selection going forward.
I love this subreddit because the stories are so creepy and amazing. Being able to hear these stories makes it so much better. The narrators really brings the stories to life in such a great way.
The most consistent horror story podcast. Great stories and amazing narration. Always fun to listen to :)
I have only seen three podcasts and I’m still surprised how creative these stories are. And I didn’t know this podcast started in 2011 and I noticed that there was one made every two weeks. These are pretty scary but also really creative. I’m planning to watch a few of these everyday in time order. I love this podcast and I love listening to it. And I’m subscribed.
Started this podcast from the newest episode and I’ve worked my way backwards. I’m now in the first season and I’ve loved every episode! If you like creepy horror you will love this. My favorite episodes are the holiday specials.
This podcast on extremely rare occasion has great stories. Unfortunately, most of the time the content feels like it was written by high schoolers. I’d place the blame on the fact that the produce episodes far too regularly. Normally that would be a good thing for a podcast with a voracious following, but with the frequency with which they put out episodes I can’t help but feel they are forced to make an inferior product. The production is the best part, excluding the children’s voices. I can’t stand segments where adults try to sound like, “a cute widdle gwirl.” I immediately skip or altogether turn off the episode when those parts come up. Many of the episodes feel overacted, and I use this podcast to fall asleep to. So much for no sleep...
This is very amateurish and not well written.
This podcast is amazing. The production is incredible and the quality of stories has me hooked.
I need to start by saying, these guys used to produce a great show. As a horror genre aficionado, I was really delighted to find them, and we'd look forward to their new segment coming out each week. Quality writing and great voice actors and production. However somewhere after the election of Trump, they increasingly took on this "woke", dark cultural terroristic sensibility which has steadily metastasized and totally ruined the whole thing. Lectures to the audience proceed programs. Virtue signalling abounds. Suddenly everything put in terms of "Goodie" gays/social misfits/abused women/minorities/druggies/Satanists (literally) etc, against "Baddie" parents, religious people, fathers, authority figures, people with strong gender identities, etc, etc. It's become quite stupid, spiteful, and retrograde in character. The characters you're supposed to identify with are now regularly not even innocent or normal people but precisely the murderers, monsters etc. Bitter lefty "moralistic" stories leave the listener feeling cold and creepily used instead of appreciated and entertained. Occasionally I try to check them out again imagining they'll be over this temporary hiccup, but they're just lost. Only gets worse and worse. Good stories are now the rarity, the rule is obviously what they intend to be "angst fueled outsider" SJW chic. It's really terrible. It's just relentless and there's literally no sense anymore that the show should come first over the chip-on-the-shoulder political nonsense. They're in a dark, ugly place. And I don't mean that in the sense great horror-genre material should be but in terms of the quality and the total abandonment of concentration on producing a quality product anymore. They used to have the vibe of sitting around the campfire telling great scarry stories. No particular embittered, hostile or gratuitous political emphasis. Now? It's like sitting around the campfire wiht a group of vacuous babbling gender-ambiguous Marxist Critical Theory undergrads, listing to them describing their "horror" ad being addressed as "Miss" rather than "Xee", and recounting their retaliation against "the Man" by smearing menstral blood on the cheeky shopkeeper's front door. Nasty, dumb, torturous, hostile, and relentlessly so. Real shame.
This podcast REALLY creeps me out, the stories are amazing! Very good! Especially how they are told, just, oooh, amazing👌🏻👌🏻 YAAASSS! Ima just listen to these the rest of my life, thank you very much. Keep up the good work!👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻
Awesome horror stories to listen to before bed. Keep up the work guys, love the podcast!!!
It used to be the absolute best when it came to the narrative selection, every episode left me feeling disturbed and wanting more. After a few seasons they would throw in a few stinkers but for the most part it was the same no sleep I’d come to love. Now... Well it’s borderline unlistenable. The production is great, same with the voice acting; with a couple exceptions like when they act like children and out of breath detectives, but the stories are absolutely juvenile. The subreddit would be insulted to be compared to this and that’s saying something. I’d recommend older seasons but I can’t listen to the recent stuff.
Fun but not all the stories are good
I loved the podcast and would binge for hours, but a lot of the times I find myself more disappointed. Lately when I listen, it’s more of a “...THATS IT?” Reaction versus the usual “Woah.” The sci-fi/fantasy was a great addition to the line up. Where I finally decided to finally pull the plug was when the adult voices portrayed children’s roles. It’s super whiny and high pitched. I suffered through the McQueen story because it peaked my interest, but now it’s unbearable. I just skip the children’s stories all together and turn to the podcast when I’m bored. Still tuning in here and there hoping it gets better.
Awesome podcast, great and intriguing listens. Every story draws my interest I’m always looking forward to hearing the next one.
Great to fall asleep to!
Absolutely love this podcast. U all are amazing at what u do. I’ve been listening for the past 2 or so month, nonstop, while I sleep and at work, and I still have about 2 seasons to go til I catch up. Keep up the great work.
Wish there were more podcasts of stories with gay characters
I LOVE THIS PODCAST. I’ve gotten in to and subsequently lost interest in tons of different podcasts over the past few years, but NoSleep NEVER disappoints. The voice actors are great, the effects are great, the sound mixing is great, the music is great...everything is done SO professionally and it really draws you in. Listening feels like a cinematic experience. The stories are generally creative, spooky and fun (although I do think more stories that *aren’t* from told from the perspectives of straight men would be welcomed by all). The performers and authors constantly provide so much great content and so many solid performances—I’m astonished that they’ve all produced so much material over the past few years. Keep up the excellent work! I’m a fan for life.
Thanks for all your hard work bringing us these scary tales in audio form!
I love this podcast! The stories and the voice actors are stellar. I listen to these just to get creeped out, and this works like a charm...🥶👍👌
Well acted, well edited scary stories. I love horror anthologies, and this show is like a new one once a week.
I work alone most days and if it weren’t for this podcast i probably wouldn’t get through the day with my sanity i love the podcast and all of their narrators
It will give you goosebumps and creep you out it is gory and has amazing voice actors. The musical score if perfect. Thank you for being perfectly creepy I love the No Sleep Podcast
My current addiction! I can’t get enough. I’m actually excited to get to work since it’s where I listen. But work gets in the way!!
This is a fantastic show! I am truly captivated by each story. If you enjoy a good horror story this is a must listen.
I love these voice actors and the production is top notch, even the commercials are well-done. I can’t stop listening! Next stop, paid subscription to all of the content!
I have been listening to this podcast since it first aired. TNSPC Is overall amazing. And I’ve subscribed to it since being able to support the Podcast annually. This last episode was probably the only one that let me down. Perhaps it was the format. Overall your podcast is fantastic, filled with such talented voice actors. I also thought it was so forward thinking of the podcast to support the LGBTQ community by embracing and sharing stories that not all long time fans weren’t too happy with. The world is full of all shades and types of humans and we all love in different ways. I actually found the love come through in the newer episodes more genuine and believable than the “vanilla/generic “ relationships portrayed in other podcasts. So keep up the amazing job. You’ve saved me so much money in no longer subscribing to Sirius and made any car ride something to look forward to. Even circling my neighborhood until a story is over.
Such a good podcast 10/10
Love, Love, Love your podcast. So glad you put your episodes on Apple Podcast. I had to rewind some episodes just in case I missed out on the ending. Don't stop what ya doing and keep up the great work. These stories get me through the day/night and introduce me to the horror writters world.
Season 12 episode 25 Season Finale!! Whoa! What a story! I was hooked and clung in every word! I have enjoyed watching the progression of this podcast. While always a good horror podcast. It went from good to great to Amazing! Love that I can always pop on a story and be thoroughly chilled and entertained at anytime , anyplace.
I’ve been watching Sasquatch Chronicles for a couple of years now, and have binged more times than I’d care to admit. What I appreciate most about Wes and the way he runs his podcast is how he treats his guests, and the quality of programming. It is clear that he cares deeply about his work and takes it seriously. The respect he shows to his guests is an example of how other hosts could model their behavior. Thank you for letting us all into your world, Wes! Cheers!! -Mae
If you want disturbing horror stories that are well written and produced, try Knifepoint Horror or Westside Fairytales. This is OK for general audiences and leans heavily into camp for the most part. They appear to enjoy making it and they’re definitely one of the trailblazers in this arena, just a little lightweight and silly for the serious horror enthusiast.
I found this on accident and listen every night while I’m winding down for the day. The stories are unique and creative, and creepy. Keep it up!!
I stumbled upon this podcast when looking for a horror themed podcast on Spotify. This was one of the first ones to come up and BOY am I glad I clicked it! I was on a late night drive home and had a good hour to spare just from the commute. Season 13 ep 1 caught my eye because ELIJA FREAKING WOOD was in it. I didn’t know how I’d feel about the short stories, because I personally hate audiobooks, but the acting, sound effects, and eerie music pulled me in immediately. By the time I made it home the podcast was over, I then spent that night marathoning while doing work and I’m still addicted. This is a uniquely crafted podcast with every twist and turn that keeps you on the edge of your seat. Thank you for creating something so unique and dark to fill my cold, dark, soul.
I am a scary movie love, however these podcast are so awesome and professionally recorded that I turn off scary movies just to listen to these stories. I even play them at night when I’m driving Lyft. Keep up the great work guys.
Updated from my last review I wrote a few years ago below: I’ve been listening since the beginning, bought the season pass every season since they were first offered and they were well worth it each and every time. Didn’t get theme these last 2 seasons but I’ve been struggling with it for at least 3 seasons. I can barely get through the regular episodes. Saddly I’ve unsubscribed. The stories are Goosebumps level AT BEST. The sound design is over the top and distracting. Many of the voice actors are absolutely wonderful but the Accents and child voices that some of them try are cringey. What happened? **** First review: “Best audio fiction on earth” This is one of 2 audio horror fiction podcasts I will listen to and it is superb. I’ve tried out many horror fiction podcasts and they usually fall short in areas that make my eyes roll. NSP gets the tone just right which is hard to do given the genre and content. It’s dark, sophisticated and frightening. I’m a plus member so whenever a new episode comes out it’s like Christmas. David Cummings does a great job with quality and consistency.
The only trigger warnings I need are if the story has slimy, slurpy, scratchy, crunchy sounds. .. Which is nearly every story, for no reason, in seasons 9 and up. In addition to being physically unlistenable, the stories in later seasons are boring and forgettable. It's just "Look! An over-the-top scary thing!" *makes squishy sounds on loop for 5 minutes* The first few seasons were great though, like, seasons 1 to 5.
I listen to this all the time. It loads in places Spotify won’t, which is awesome. David is the one person that can make the word “podcast” scary without the word “law” in front of it. 10/5, amazing.
Listening to creepy stories in perfect voices to give you all the wonderful creeps! Keep up the great stories. Barely in season 2 and can’t get enough!
Wow I’m in awe of da work you guys are doing. Every freaking story, I can’t even say is better than da one before) cause they’re all so f...ing out there!!!!! Again, Hail to da masters of pods!!!!!!🖤💀👁🕯💤🤤😳🙃
I keep trying to picture who writes for these and all I envision are adolescent incels and cool girls. This season’s VHS schtick seems grasping rather than retro. I’ve been listening for a few years and used to enjoy it so much more; I’ll hold out hope for a bit longer!
Simply the best narrative podcast. Great team, great voices, sound design, music, production, and stories. I especially love being surprised every time David Cummings appears in an episode. It's almost like Where's Waldo, but he's generally the serial killer...
This is a great podcast, sometimes it actually gives me goosebumps.
...but not anymore.
My boyfriend got me started on Nosleep. I listen each night at work and it’s been such a great podcast. I started at season one, and I’m currently up to season 5. The stories and production get better with each season. Great voice actors, awesome suspense. Some stories are generally unnerving, confusing, kooky, even a few oddly goofy, if uncomfortable ones here and there. I never know what I’m gonna get week to week. I highly recommend giving David and the team a listen!
Started listening to this podcast a few years ago during a 16 hour straight through solo drive (and return trip 2 days later). Few stories, if any at all, were actually scary. Some made me laugh, and a few actually had me giving side-eye to my phone screen while wondering what 4th grader’s parents told them anything was possible - resulting in the submission of such poorly written drivel. All that being said - I do actually love this podcast. Nothing is so “deep” or so “serious” that you can’t bear to keep Google maps open to give you directions. If you space out and miss the second half - no biggie. Personally, I like that. It’s a comforting and familiar and not all that complicated friendship when you can’t stand the noise of your iTunes anymore.
The no sleep podcast is by far the best podcast I have ever come across. I’ve been a fan for 4 years now. My husband, my 6 year old and myself listen to it every time we have a chance! She loves scary and gore as do we. If there was a podcast that would describe my family it would be the no sleep podcast. Please continue your work! We are excited to attend the 2019 tour in SLC Utah!
The stories are cheesy and predictable. Except for a couple gems like Borrasca, and the one season finale about interdimensional parasites. That being said, I have listened to practically every single episode of this podcast. That speaks for something
This Podcast is so well produced and I’m so grateful for all the talent behind it! The voice acting, composition, and even the creativity behind announcements/advertisements blows me away! The season Pass is well worth it. Thank you David!
I love the “ nosleep podcast” and I’m also new to this I love this podcast so much i Hera this everyday now! Even though I’m sometimes sad for a story I love it just the way it is! Please keep up the best podcast!
I’ve heard maybe 1 or 2 good stories. The rest are super cheesy and the voice actors are so over dramatic, it takes me out of the story.
I’ve been on the nosleep sub for almost 6 years and enjoying the podcast has been a wonderful experience. I love the actors, the music, everything. It’s incredible in every way.
This show is one of the best horror anthology podcasts in existence. Its well acted and well played. Its almost like an audio version of The Twilight Zone or Tales From The Crypt. Definitely a must for horror fans.
More Horror! More weird stories with men feeding houses with vomit! More dimensional Peculiarities! More High quality voice acting! More guest voice actors! Most importantly, More Peter Lewis! I hate when I get caught up with episodes, I’m left fiendishly waiting for more.
I just started listening to this podcast a week ago. I'm 20some episodes in and each episode gets better and better. I love that I have so many episodes to catch up on.
Really, really enjoy this podcast. I am absolutely obsessed at this point. I started from the beginning and it seems to be getting better and better as I continue. I listen to it every chance I get. The voice actors and narration is perfect.
I used to be addicted to this podcast. The stories were so good that they gave me goosebumps. The last two seasons have been extremely disappointing. Nothing is scary, most times I feel physically uncomfortable with the stories. Like sexual stuff that's just strange af and disgusting. The stories now are... just plain boring or gross. The voices are really bad also. One of the women, she has a slow, raspy voice and she does this weird low to high pitch and pauses a lot. It's very forced and fake. And one man speaks extremely slow and low as if he's trying to be spooky and it's just cringy. I miss the old stuff.
Spooky, been a long time fan for some time now. Some stories are better than others but the voice acting is almost always leaving me with chills :)
Been listening for a long time and just love all of the voice actors. David Cummings (hope I got name right) is fun and has a velvety voice. I really appreciated his standing up for those of us in the LGBTQ+ community in his commentary during Pride month. ❤️
I try to listen to other horror podcasts and I just ALWAYS come back to this one! Definitely my favorite :)
Absolutely love this podcast, amazingly written and put together. Can’t stop listening and can’t wait for more!!
I have LOVED this podcast since season one, and have listened since the podcast started. But the last two seasons (11 and 12) are just missing something (12 was just awful.) The stories are just boring or very poorly written. I find myself rolling my eyes at almost every story in season 12, and not a single one of the stories was memorable. Maybe season 13 will bring it back, but for an increased price on the season pass it sounds like David is scrounging at this point. It breaks my heart.
This is the only podcast I listen to immediately and can’t wait for another.
I love this podcast. It certainly is the best of the thriller/horror genre. I listen to it every time I exercise.
I don’t care for so many F bombs, it’s not necessary. Clean it up and I’ll subscribe
This is the absolute best podcast I’ve ever listened too!
The No Sleep podcast offers excellent and interesting and creepy stories, expertly narrated by an incredible cast. It’s so good that sometimes I wait a few days after it comes out so I can savor listening to it! This show has introduced me to writers both contemporary and classic, and offers a lot of variety in the types of tales it tells, as well as a diverse cast of characters. LGBTQ positive, to boot!
I love this podcast. I’m so glad I found this and I haven’t stopped listening ever since. The stories are amazing; and I can’t wait to listen to future episodes.
Seriously. So many episodes, so much content. Why listen to anything else?!
I absolutely love this podcast. I’m starting from the very beginning and have just finished season 7. I have to say that the season finale for season 7 “Borrasca” was one of the best stories! From start to finish I was obsessed. I would love to see it in a movie.
At first I loved the podcast because it was fun to just binge, but after the episodes involving graphic animal death/abuse/etc, I found it hard to continue listening.The episodes started to make me more sad than scared. The voice actors are amazing but the experience is ruined for me when the topics previously mentioned are a big part of the story
The voice actors are amazing and the stories are so immersive. Absolutely LOVE this podcast. Can’t live without it!
Congrats you have been reviewed hahaha
I am so glad I checked out this podcast. I love it! I’ve never listened to this type of show before so I wasn’t sure I would like it. But I definitely recommend anyone who wants to be creeped out and surprised to listen!!
Goosebumps. Chill bumps. Cold chills. Whatever you call them, you can bet you’ll experience them while listening to this podcast. I am a self proclaimed horror junkie, and this was just what I needed. There are several stories that have scared me silly - Penpal. WOW. It reminds me of listening to Scary Stories to Tell In The Dark when I was younger. The stories are enthralling, spooky, and some are way too real to be fiction. The voice actors are AMAZING! Don’t listen alone, otherwise the name will ring true - you will get NO SLEEP.
I've been a fan since season 2 after being an avid reader of the nosleep reddit forum. The stories are always on point and the perfect amount of scary to keep me coming back week after week. There's only one voice actor I can't stand (personal bias to her voice- not her fault- just not my cup of tea) but I muscle through my annoyance to listen to the stories I love. I love this podcast so much, as soon as I completed all the episodes i went right back to the beginning and started all over again! Long live nosleep 👍🏻
I love most of these stories. The stories aren’t just scary but they are weary and anxious as well. No sleep is a great title, because it’s exactly what happens after listening to these stories by yourself at night.
Been listening to this podcast since 2014. Story’s are dope and the voice actors are on point
I love how each episode has more than one story and how each story has different voice actors. Really well done!!
David Cummings is a genius I love his voice is the Easter voice actors. The storytelling is amazing! And the production of this podcast is Beyond excellent.
I can’t quite remember when this started happening, but it seems as though as of late a lot of the stories—like most—have been told from the perspective of a person who was involved in the story with an ending that was either too neat or annoyingly ambiguous. I have no problem with leaving something to the imagination but its disrespectful when the ending comes off as abrupt and just some cliffhanger that we’ll never get. I was listening to a story from the most recent episode and the story ended with someone being captured, but why not discuss what happens after that if you’re the person that happens to? Just weird stuff like that that makes it seem as though they’re mailing it in.
Not bad, not great. I’ve come across about 5 stories that have made me keep the episode in my download library. 5 stories, out of more than 50 stories I’ve listened to so far. It’s definitely an entertaining podcast, which is good enough for me. I really only have one issue that bothers me: the show runner, David Cummings, his voice is not suited to voice work. An A for effort, but it’s just not good enough.
I’ll still give a five star rating cuz the production is awesome. However, I’m disappointed that in 12 season. I haven’t heard a Black voice actor or stories written by one. In a genre that is predominantly White it would be nice to see No Sleep lead the way to bring in black artists in like they did with the LGBT community.
I have been with this podcast from the beginning and David Cummings President of Creative Reasons Inc and show host/narrator has outdone himself on this show. He has taken this podcast from just being him and making it into this amazing show complete with a cast of voice actors, writers, composer while staying true to his words. “For the dark hours when you dare not close your eyes...” I recommend this show to friends, family and co-workers. You will not be disappointed when you put this on your library.
I’m loving this podcast!!!! All the stories are so scary and literally keeps me awake. The only thing is when it’s read by Brett, I just can’t hear what’s he’s saying as he sounds like he’s out of breath at the end of each word... Other than that, it’s a great podcast!!
I went through a time back in 2015 when i first found this podcast, and i immediately fell in love with the first 5 or 6 season. I soon took a brake after binging weeks worth of the show. I have no ill will towards Mr. David, but i feel the the more resent stories haven’t been looked over as thoroughly as they should have been. either that or they have started to take a new route towards storytelling. Overall I highly recommend it but there is a pretty large shift at some point from terrifying to, as a fellow reviewer put it, “helps me fall asleep”.
Every aspect of this podcast is high quality voice acting 10/10 Story selection 10/10 music is all original 10/10 David Cummings does a great job putting it all together, show notes are comprehensive. all around great podcast, If you can spare a few dollars consider getting one of the season passes or, for an even better value, I suggest the First 12 Bundle. Great stuff!
it’s the only thing that puts me to sleep. I have the most amazing dreams when I listen to No Sleep. I used to listen to the sleep with me podcast which is also fantastic, until one night I accidentally fell asleep listening to an episode of this. It was unreal. It was like I was there. It doesn’t happen every night but once in a while my brain will sync up and immerse me in the No Sleep universe. Thanks guys! Keep up the good work.
This used to be my favorite podcast, but the stories aren’t even scary or creepy anymore just tedious and borderline boring. Not to mention, listening to the same voice actors narrate every season is getting old. They recently announced a $5 price increase to their already steep price for a season pass and personally, after buying a couple passes for the recent seasons, it’s barely worth the price.
Got so caught up in binge listening, I completely forgot to write a review. Simply put; the best horror podcast. Have been listening for a couple weeks and I’ve already had to sign up for the extra edition. I have a job that allows me to listen to podcasts as I preform my daily tasks and it’s amazing to have such a well put together show. From the authors, to the sound production. Huge shout out to the whole team! Well done!!! Thank you for all you’ve done and for all I know you’ll do.
Absolutely love it! It’s so good and the stories are actually original! The narrators diva fantastic job. I listen to it on my way to and from work and when I’m just relaxing it home. To me it’s even better than watching tv! I highly recommend it to any of my fellow horror enthusiasts!
If you’re a fan of anything scary/disturbing this is where you need to be. The quality and quantity is better than anything out there and if I had to choose between scary movies or this podcast, I would choose this podcast. Hands down.
I’ve spent the past few months going from start to finish on the available episodes, very impressed by the sheer amount and variety of horror content you guys have given amazing voices to. You guys also have the best commercial performances out of all the podcasts I have listened to!
The stories on here are absolutely terrifying and great! The voices do a great job and are truly captivating. Some stories are not scary at all but they are all amazing. I love to binge listen all the time. Thank you NoSleep Team. :)
It is very immersive with great voices, stories, and atmosphere. Watch it at night
This podcast has the BEST stories and the best voice actors! I hike in 105 degrees and listen to this podcast. It’s so entertaining, I can enjoy my hike!
Love the stories they are very entertaining and chilling (in a good way). Also the actors are all great and bring their own flair. Especially love listening to Nikolle Doolin, Addison Peacock and Nichole Goodnight, but they all are outstanding. Keep up the great work! 👍🏾
This podcast is amazingggg all of the voice actors do great work. During the earlier seasons I wasn’t a fan but the more I listen the better it got! I started from season 1 and I’m currently in season 12. Highly recommend 😊😊. Thank you guys!
The stories in earlier seasons were great! Unfortunately the voice actors now, excluding a small few, are awful. The voice actors tones and the fake accents make me feel like im listening to a childrens audio book. Im still holding out, hoping they go back to how things were in the earlier seasons with actual horror stories and voice actors that make the stories seem real. Get back to real horror!
ALL TIME BEST!
Y’all are so talented! Thanks for giving me something to listen to while I’m working. Please keep them coming! Leslie from Texas
I’ve listened to this podcast since the third season started and then went back and listened to everything, and literally everyone who knows me knows that it’s my favorite thing ever. The writing is amazing, the production quality is brilliant, and the talent is incomparable! 5/5 stars, every time.
What a great show! Thank you for your efforts.
The latest season finale was the best yet!!!! I cannot even begin to accurately express how amazing this podcast is. If you love horror, if you love stories, if you love feeling a little creeped out when you’re home alone, this is THE PODCAST. The sheer amount of episodes is one of my favorite things about the show. Once I finish the new episode of the week, I scroll all the way down to dig into the archives. Once you listen for a couple months, you’ll be convinced to pay for exclusive content and full episodes because you’ll HAVE to hear a story that isn’t available in the free version. This podcast is deeply inspiring to me as a writer, and I am constantly saying “this should be a movie” or “this could be a tv show.” Consistently original and unique content! With every listen, it gets better!
I love the show. Always look forward to new episodes. Thank you !
Girl on Fire and the Season 12 finale have made me a forever fan.
The season 12 finale was simply one the best things that ever happened to podcast. I was riveted for the entire episode. Thanks for another great season and I am already looking forward to season 13. Ooooo 13.
Cool show, my only complaint is the really long ads, I get it. They need to make money, but can’t you spread out the ads? Instead of cramming 6-10 minutes of ads at the beginning?
I don’t know why I keep listening every week. This podcast used to be my absolute favorite but the quality just fell off completely. I think it’s finally time I unsubscribed. David and the narrators are all still extremely talented and I’ll miss hearing their voices but what’s with the stories? I hope I’ll get to listen to their voices again on a different podcast because I really can’t take feeling like I wasted an entire and a half every week on boring, confusing, uninspired tales. I’ll give David and the narrators 5 stars any day, but this podcast is done.
Cool show, I can honestly say with some sadness that the show while good, used to be amazing. What dropped it from 10/10 to 7/10? Commercials at the start, and the OBVIOUS fact that the “free” stories each week are 8 times out of 10 the weaker stories. This shows prime was I’d say s3-s7. Still good. But right on the verge/tipping point of that “sell out” title being given, if not already deserved...Will listen if bored but I know the 2 free ones won’t be scary or very fun. (And I’m someone who bought the pass for season 7 & 8.) also...we GET IT...you support gay rights, but why is every other story about a gay main character...? Is half the population gay!? I don’t care if someone is, but the over abundance of it just feels like awkward.
I’m only a recent listener, perhaps the last half year. I’d randomly came across this podcast after listening to a few others.. Wow is all I have to say... This is some real quality content..I was a little disheartened when it became a paid podcast because currently I don’t have a lot of extra spending money, and as much as I listen to in bursts I’d be spending quite a bit on several seasons all at once. But I totally understand so I enjoy what is there. I’m partway through season five and can’t help but love every minute.. certainly makes the days easier. Hope this show still has a long life ahead of it.
I’ve been a quiet listener since Season 2 but I couldn’t contain my voice after listening to S12E21. Girl On Fire gave me the satisfaction I haven’t experienced in a while. Thank you for continuously bringing quality horror/thriller content into my life and continue to do fantastic audio work!
Now I feel like it’s so goofy and it really takes away from the creepiness of the stories. The fake accents and loud voices. It used to be one of my favorite shows, but now I cringe every time I listen.
Amazing stories in the early seasons. Last episodes have really let down. Great writing yet the stories are not scary at all just plain narratives. Go back to the basics like supernatural stories i.e the tall dog and so many others.
This is one of the very few podcasts I make an effort to listen to every single week. How they are able to edit and produce an episode every week is beyond me. And it is incredible. Keep up the good work! Amazing podcast!
Great podcast!! I used to hate Nicole Duland (guessing on spelling from hearing it on the podcast) as her voice was very monotoned and lacked “voice acting” skills. I used to skip the old ones if she was in it, but over the years has gotten much better. I love the new addition to the voice acting crew. I recognize 2 of them from previous podcasts I’ve listen to. Unique stories and love the variety that is given. Some are scarier than others and some are more subtle. Great quality audio and sound effects. Keep up the great work!
I searched for a while to find a good horror podcast & I found a few but this is by far the best! I listen to it everyday in my car & my husband is equally addicted making me turn it on in the car on our car rides no matter how short!
Stories in the past several seasons haven’t been scary at all. I will stop buying the season passes. NSP use to be much, much better. 😕
Girl on fire? Is it an X-men origin story masquerading as a horror story?? Half of the stories they tell are more narratives and not exactly what I would call No Sleep stories. Worth listening if you have nothing better.
I love the show ! The content is my favorite. By far my favorite podcast on this app. But every time I get a season pass I always have to email admin for support. The show either locks me out halfway through or just is locked when purchased. Last time I had to email them it took two weeks for a response. Please fix your security settings. This is the fourth time I’ve purchased a season pass. I love this show & will persevere through the security hoops regardless. But it is still annoying as hell nonetheless.
Girl on Fire...best one so far. Well written and kept me listening not to miss a minute of it.
I’ve actually scrapped the archives and listened to pretty much all the free content so I was really excited that season 12 was coming out. So for the first time, I bought the membership. I regret wasting my money. Most of the whole episodes are garbage, the stories devolving into self insert fanfic power trips for some extremely sad people. I tried, remembering the stories that actually raised my hackles in the previous seasons, but the second story of ep 21 killed any enthusiasm I had for this podcast. Save your money and listen to the free archives from before season 12, cause this podcast jumped the shark and is on the downward slope.
Modern audio drama that is wickedly superb and always a solid recommendation. Cheers to everyone behind No Sleep- and cheers again.
Plow through Season 1. Stay for the story. Season 2 gets better and you can tell the team learned a lot from the first season because acting and production improved big time! Brilliant story! Can’t wait for Season 3!!!
Y’all are great! I love the stories and the diverse narration is awesome!
First podcast I ever fell in love with! Kept it up, ya’ll get me through life :)
I love all things horror: monsters, murder, ghosts, demons, aliens. This podcast is literally perfect for when you’re in a creepy mood and want to listen to stories that make your skin crawl. The voice acting is excellent and so engaging. I highly recommend this podcast to anyone who loves to be spooked as much as I do!!
It initially gets you hooked and keeps carrying you with ease throughout the terrifying stories; it also helps that you have the cushy, enveloping voice of the host David Cummings to lull you into the horror!
I’ve been listening to this podcast for well over 2 years now. I really like to listen to it when I have nothing to do. The narrators do a good job and I think their inclusion of LGBT relationships in their stories is really good and I support their choice.
Kudos to cast and crew for top notch realization for theater of the mind. Through acting, sound effects, editing and production they put you into the environments. Why not 5 stars? Much of the source material. Many stories have abysmally weak endings that ruin the story. “ I walked away and I’m glad I never looked back.” Poor. Trauma over. Not scary, not well thought out or an impactful way to wrap up a horror story. Happens way too much. A minor, but salient critique point. When you have 5-20 minutes to tell a horror tale, there should not be a long scene dedicated to descriptions of smoking. That isn’t just pointless, it turns the stories into tobacco ads. Glorifying bad habits should not be so prominent. No value added to the story and in fact, detrimental when it goes on and on.
What is up with Jessica mcevoys accent? She says words with hard consonants...in just curious where that accent is from or if it is her reading the script too robotically ?
If you enjoy horror and scary stories you will find no better podcast! I would highly recommend anyone to try this podcast!
Was and will ALWAYS BE a season pass member! So much good content. Actors are amazing - it’s produced amazingly well! Will always be a listener - even if I have to skip a meal to buy the season pass. (No worries, I don’t, but that’s how invested I am!)
If it were possible I'd give it more stars.
This is the ONLY podcast I listen to! I love all of it! A friend of mine turned me on to it and I have been hooked!
If your bored, busy, or your driving this is one of the best things to listen to. I listen to this everyday and I love it .
There are some narrators that just bother the hell out of me. The amount of times chosen stories have the phrase “pitch dark” in it is far too many, in my opinion (the phrase is “pitch black”). Some of the stories should have trigger warnings.
I have 30 minute trips to work and this podcasts always keeps my entertained during them.
I've been listening to the podcast since season 2 and up until a year or two ago, I had a glowing 5 star review, but recently there has been a severe drop in my enjoyment of the show. The audio quality is top notch, the music, mixing, etc. My issue comes with the quality of the stories that have been produced over the last couple years. I find that they often follow similar elements and tropes, more often than not I’m rolling my eyes and/or predicting the ending right away. There just aren’t stories being selected anymore that give me a good scare and they feel more akin to indie film scripts and people trying to make the story about something other than a horror element, so much so that any scares take a back seat. The constant reliance on the same 15 authors over and over may be a cause of this, as the few stories I have enjoyed recently have come from names that have never appeared before. At first I though I was maybe becoming acclimated to horror stories too much, but I still find plenty that give me a fright. And lastly, and most upsettingly, it seems they have left their roots from the NoSleep subreddit, their namesake, as it seems about 1 story in 20 actually come from there.
Hi this is creepypasta girl you are the best I want to say thank you to the people who help the podcast after all that drama at school I can finally relax an listen so you work hard keep up the good work PS you the best podcast and I wish I could be on the show but I am sadly a kid
This is by far the best podcast I've heard as of yet. I now look forward to my commute! The production on every level is so well done. The voice actors and host David do such a great job and I'm glad that I am doing the season pass. It's so worth it for the extra great content. Great show. I look forward to many many more seasons! Keep up the good work!
Where is Peter Lewis?! I miss his voice so much! Bring him back please!!
While some stories are not scary or are just really weird, when they get a really scary story it is great.
I’ve been listening to yalls podcast since you guys started from the very beginning. The stories use to actually be kinda creepy and would have me thinking about them for a little while after I was done listening (I’m hard to scare) but now most of the stories just aren’t creepy at all anymore, sometimes I even laugh at them, there is one once in awhile that I like, but the stories just aren’t that great anymore. The voice acting is awesome and the sound effects etc, it’s just the quality of the stories that bugs me. Honestly I had stopped listening for about over a year because of this and I came back to find out it really hasn’t changed much, I’m not trying to be rude or anything, I’m just giving my opinion. I hope y’all come up with some more actual scary stories. I know that it must be difficult sine y’all have been doing this forever and maybe y’all are just running out of ideas or something. Anyways that is all.
I am a warehouse picker and I spend 8 to 10 hours a day just walking around a warehouse filling bins with orders and I typically spend the entire time listening to these podcasts. I have to say that these stories have turned my job from something extremely boring that I dread, to something i actually look forward to because it means that I get to spend my time listening to these stories. Many of them are gripping and truly disturbing. I prefer suspenseful stories, with lots of gore and this podcast has never failed to deliver. I appreciate all the hard work you guys have put in to create and release these shows weekly. Thank you so much! Amazing series! 5 out of 5!
I’m a weekend night janitor at several places and nothing is scarier than being alone in a half-lit building at 10:00 at night listening to my favorite horror anthology podcast!!!
I’m blown away by this podcast, I’ve listened to them all twice or more and still can’t get enough. Fantastic work everyone! It’s hard to describe how intimate and yet haunting this story are for me. Mr.Cummings my gratitude knows no bounds man, freakin well done.
No Sleep is my favorite podcast of all time!! So many seasons and amazing stories. Once I’m finished with them all I will probably listen all over again. I love the host and all the characters.
I enjoy some of the stories. I haven't found a better scary story podcast. My biggest problem with this story is the host. He is absolutely terrible at performing and reading scary stories. I reckon that he thinks the way he reads sounds interesting or is building suspense, but he comes off sounding so disconnected from how humans speak.
Best podcast on my subscription list. Hands down.
wonderful for any horror fanatics. after listening for a while, you feel as though you’re part of a community. incredible production, talented actors and writers. look forward to it every week!
Been listening for years and I’m pretty sure I’ve listened to each episode twice by now. Can never get enough. The cast are incredible. Thank you!!
The voices and the way it paints a image in your head it feels so real and almost as if you’re the person in the event but it would be cool if they added 2nd person stories.
Just started it and I’m already scared!
I have been listening for over 4 years now. The cast feels like family at this point. Their voice abilities are outstanding. The stories are always entertaining and to see how much the podcast has grown in quality is incredible. David and the whole crew put so much heart into their work it is hard to have each episode end. Thank you very much for all the years of enjoyment!
This podcast is a gem. Although some story’s have an obvious plot. Some story’s show the have thought was clearly put into it. It makes you fully immersed with sounds/change of music. Even though these rarely scare me I’m know to be hard to scare this always give me great thoughts afterwords on what could have happened will probably after words. I would recommend pen pal as that was one of few that scared me and always have great twists. So if your looking to be intrigued this podcast will not disappoint.
The sounds, the voices, the stories are all so amazing. I recommend this to everyone who loves horror. I've never felt like I was JUST listening to a podcast. I feel like I'm living the same life as the narrator with the envolvment of this podcast. This is hands down the best podcast I've ever come across. Love the nosleep team!
I can’t live without this podcast but I’m afraid I’ll die if I keep listening! 😳
Loved this podcast up until a year ago, when they cut their episodes in half, and now they only play the first 1-2 stories out of their advertised 4-5. The only way you can hear a full episode is by paying. Of course the first couple stories aren’t very good so you’re left unsatisfied. I feel cheated because I’ve been listening to & supporting this podcast for a long time and now I have to pay to hear the same thing I’ve gotten for free over all these years. They should’ve added bonus content for those who pay, not take away half the episodes for the casual listener.
I have an ongoing love/hate relationship with horror. I absolutely love it and I’m hooked, but I also get extremely freaked out and can’t sleep. So naturally, I’m addicted to this show! I listen so much that even hearing the theme song starts to make me shiver. Excellent production. 10/10 wont sleep for days.
Tales from the gas station was my favorite until I listened to Seaside Pub. Best Podcast Ever!!!!
A couple of times a week I have 4 “dead hours”, hours in which I’m commuting or traveling or at lunch, and sometimes it’s a drag. Now with this podcast I wish I had more commute hours! The stories are captivating and easy to visualize. The voice actors are top notch, and the production is amazing. I love the NoSleep subreddit, and the podcast is just as amazing. You won’t regret subscribing to this masterpiece!
I have been a fan for years. This is by far my favorite podcast but even with that said it had some aspects that are unbelievably irritating. The introductions are FAR too long. David seems to have started voice acting classes as of late, which I appreciate, but I think he needs to hire more voice actors and stick strictly to hosting. The stories as of late have been kind of corny.. they definitely don’t fill me with the same dread that they used to. The music and sound team are fantastic. And many of the voice actors are extremely talented. There is so much good in the podcast but they still have a few things they could work on.
This pod cast is my salvation; my daily commute takes one hour and ten minutes each way, These stories get me through the long and tedious commute, I’m am kept entertained for the whole drive, sometimes I don’t get out of the car until the story is finished! Thank you
So many good reviews, so interested, and it HAS TO BE EXPLICIT!!!
I used to love this podcast but between Peter Lewis and (not sure of the name, but the female voice actor that says everything in an overacted monotone), and the over produced effects that don’t add much, I almost dread listening. The stories selected are hit or miss, and you’ve taken something away when every ending has the same predictable build up in tone, music, or effect. Please consider an overall review and simplify.
I was hooked the first time I heard David Cummings voice
Nicely executed content with good stories.
I dabble in the art of exploring podcasts and after stumbling upon this podcast 6 months ago I’ve concluded that this is by far my most favorite one.
Looks like I have to unsubscribe. More often than not, I find the stories ramble on, and are longer than need be. The most recent episode, I found it to be incredibly boring and skipped ahead most of it. There needs to be better story editing and more variety of authors. As it stands, a lot of their stories are obviously amateurish - slow paced and repetitive.
This is the first podcast I have contributed to and encourage others as well. TNSP is well produced, narrated, and written. Though Im a little concerned about Nicole always playing the evil mother. Hope she doesnt have kids I would be worried about their developement : )
Well written and read podcast with the most addictive episodes presented with surprising twist with unpredictable endings. Excellent
Absolutely love listening to this podcast!! I’m addicted! The quality of the actors, production and stories of The No Sleep Podcast can transport your imagination into the story like magic! I have gone back to the first season and have listened all of the way threw! I have also purchased a season pass, just so I can hear all of those stories reserved for season passes, worth every penny!!
One of the top 5 best pod casts ever made. You can tell they pour their heart and soul into them productions and the voice acting is first rate. Thank you guys for making my commute bearable
I LOVE listening to this podcast! Some seasons I purchase a season pass to not only support the podcast, but receive bonus material. I’m just as satisfied the seasons I haven’t purchased this as the quality of the stories and production are off the charts.
Every day at school I have a study period and I love listening to the podcast while doing my homework. It’s the only thing that gets me trough a long and hard day of tedious school work. My dark sense of humor and appetite for a good story thank everyone who worked, so very hard, on these podcasts and I hope they never stop. 5 stars ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ (I know it already said I put five stars, I just wanted to emphasize it)
I am a night worker and I have to say that I absolutely love horror. This is my go to podcast whenever I am alone in the middle of the night. The cast is amazing and I have been binged listened to all the serious more than three times. I look forward to listening to their podcasts whenever a new one comes on. Everyone that put this into motion is wonderful, from David to the voice cast, to the producers, to the sound and music behind the podcasts. Everything is wonderful and amazing.
I think the podcast is good however lately i feel that the newer episodes are dull and not as intense or frightening as the older episodes.
I listen to this podcast all day at work till I go home. Burning through every season. Love the all the hard work and passion poured into this podcast. I am an absolute horror fan and this is the best fix. Going to start buying season passes here soon!
This is literally the best podcast ever made. I’ve listened to every episode and there was never one that wasn’t good.
A wonderfully produced podcast, expert voice acting, sound design and musical composition in every episode. I love throwing this on any chance I get!
Came into this one late and so glad I have 7 YEARS of content to listen to! (Like, where has this been all my life?) Going to become a season pass holder for sure, thanks for creeping me out enough to check my windows at night ;) Great content, production and voices I’ve quickly become familiar with. So much to listen to! 🖤
I found this podcast many moons ago and for years I can say Sunday mornings are filled with the best quality of terrifying tales. The voice actors are the best in the biz and David has continually made each show better than the last. His team has it all and that’s why you won’t find a better story telling horror podcast.
I love the show and all the actors Peter Lewis has the perfect voice for the show. The show fills my work hours so far got my wife and backup hooked as well keep up the good work.
An episode fell on my birthday best present ever
Mostly good stories although some are very predictable and basic. I can’t deal with David Cummings’ acting though!! George Cukor would tell people, STOP ACTING!!! Never words were truer for DC. When I hear his voice I immediately skip the episode. Sorry but it ruins the vibe. He’s so terrible. That breathy, I’m trynna be scary voice! Any man he does over 30 sounds like he’s 90 and don’t even get me started in Santa clause!! Please stop so I can listen again!!!
I found this podcast a couple of weeks ago just trying to find something to listen to while at work and I came across no sleep I thought I’d give it a listen well a month later I have heard so many stories that give me chills and the voice acting bring the stories to life making me feel like I’m there in the story witnessing it right before my very eyes
Like it was the best thing you could get in a podcast
Amazing narration. You will surely not be disappointed one bit
As a lover of all things horror I am constantly looking for media that will satisfy me. This podcast is best one I have come across. The productions are well done, the stories are perfectly curated, and the voice acting is second to none. This podcast is a must for any true horror fan.
It’s not very easy to use and there is no sleep setting.
I can’t believe I’ve neglected leaving a review for so long. Long time listener of this amazing podcast. David is a genius and this podcast is a masterpiece. The voice actors and writing are phenomenal. Love love love my NoSleep family.
So far I’ve heard up to season 3. If you are looking for the heart pounding thrill of horror you’re at the right place. If you don’t want to start at the beginning that’s fine but I recommend the two special episodes called Penpal. They have left a lasting impact and are by far my favorite story’s. Thank you for all the hard work you guys put into this podcast.
I love horror. Even though I’m still fairly young, I have watched too many horror movies to count, done a research project on the horror genre and spend all my free time exploring horror in all forms. When I found this, I was ecstatic. The narration, paired with the sound effects are extremely spooky and couldn’t be better. This podcast is amazing in every aspect, and I’m obsessed!!!
I’ve been listening to this podcast for about two years now, but most of the stories have waned out of my idea of horror (supernatural) and verge more on the gross stuff, which is fine, if that’s what you’re into. Also for me, as a woman of color that has loved scary stuff for as long as I can remember, there is a marked lack of diversity. Well, let me walk that back. The podcast at least refers to POC in derogatory terms to add more depth to a story (ex. horrible descriptions of indigenous people, horribly accented Hispanic employees, Black Slaves, Christmas Jews). If anyone knows of any other horror-themed podcast, I’d love to hear about it.
I can’t even listen to this anymore because I have become paranoid. Started listening around Halloween and it delivered
I love this podcast and keep it up
