 13 people rated this podcast
In the mountains of central Appalachia, blood runs as deep as these hollers and just as dark. Since before our kind knew these hills, hearts of unknowable hunger and madness have slumbered beneath them. These are the oldest mountains in the world. How dare we think we can break the skin of a god and dig out its heart without bringing forth blood and darkness? Old Gods of Appalachia is a horror-anthology podcast set in the shadows of an Alternate Appalachia, a place where digging too deep into the mines was just the first mistake.

Chilling stories in a southern setting. Very clear audio quality. The voice, despite sometimes saying rather gruesome things, is warm and soothing. And it may be because I spent my early years all along Tennessee, but it's comforting to listen to. Additionally, I appreciate their handling of period-appropriate racism in some settings, so far just briefly touching on it for accuracy but not glorifying it.
This fiction podcast puts the lie to the widely held belief that single narrator shows are boring. Steve Shell, writer and narrator, has a wonderful voice that burrows down deep in your guts and sets its hook. This podcast sits at the pinnacle of the classic spooky storytelling tradition, but is elevated even further by the immersive soundscape and music. The language is lyrical and hypnotic. I can't say enough good things about Old Gods of Appalachia. Go listen.
I was out looking for something southern and spooky and this delivered way more than I thought possible. It's like someone wrote this story based off of exactly what I was looking for. It's amazing, spooky, well written, the voice acting is superb, and I love it so much.
