Good evening, everyone! Halloween is coming up, and that means it’s the perfect time to listen to all the creepy fiction horror podcasts the web has to offer! With that said, I have something very special to share with you today: a first-hand look at Darkest Night, the binaural audio drama from my our good friend, and host of The NoSleep Podcast, David Cummings! Among the nightmarish podcast offerings available this spooky season, The NoSleep Podcast is one the podfathers of them all, with two successful U.S. tours and over 100 million downloads. And October is an extra special month for them, in which they release their seminal Halloween episodes. Do yourself a favor and get caught up with their past Halloween episodes. They’re such a treat, and you won’t regret it! David is not only the producer and host of the The NoSleep Podcast. He’s also an executive producer on Darkest Night, a show that places you – the listener – at the center of a recovered memory that sounds as though it’s happening around you in real time. When you listen to Darkest Night in headphones, it’s like a 360-degree experience. Not only that, but the show features a full score and real string section by Alex Aldea and Andrew Joselyn, who works with musicians like Odesza, Macklemore and Mark Lanegan. Darkest Night Season 3 is narrated by the legendary Keith David – known for his work on The Thing, Requiem for a Dream, Armageddon and so many more – as well as features acting appearances from RuPaul, Paul Scheer, Constance Zimmer, Denis O'Hare, Missi Pyle, Michelle Visage, Jason Mewes (Jay from Jay & Silent Bob), David Cummings, Dan Harmon and many more. Each chapter of Darkest Night delves into the last memories of the recently deceased, slowly revealing a horrifying master plan. Who is weaving this master conspiracy, and what is their ultimate goal? Well… you’ll just have to listen in and find out! In a moment, I’ll share with you the first episode of Darkest Night’s 3rd season in its entirety.
