The Moonlit Road

The Moonlit Road specializes in sharing ghost tales and dark legends born in the Old South. Each episode effectively uses atmospheric sound effects paired with the authentic Southern twang of the narrators, for a realistic vibe. Though this production doesn’t have as many episodes as fans would like, the quality of each release makes up for what it lacks in quantity. “The Spirit of Thomas Lester,” “Elleck’s Song,” and “Railroad Bill” are just a few episodes worth checking out.


If you prefer real-life horror stories to fictional ones, then Lore is for you. Discover the dark side of history that you probably never learned in school. After listening to an episode or two, you’ll see for yourself why this show is deserving of its numerous awards, which include “Best History Podcast 2016” by the Academy of Podcasters.
