RATING
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.
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.
Both incredibly well made and deeply unsettling. Old Gods is twined with the love and knowledge of people from the areas it takes place in, making it that much more of a nightmare as it hits home. Special mention goes to the narrator for how well their voice fits! Very good to listen to and puts a lot of emotion into the show.
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.
