“Stuff You Missed In History Class”

Ok, so “Stuff You Missed” isn’t a horror podcast, but hear me out because some of these episodes are extremely creepy. While most episodes focus on little known historical figures and events, occasionally, they dedicate podcasts to historical mysteries, disappearances and infamous unsolved crimes. The wonderful thing about “Stuff You Missed” mystery episodes is that the narrators approach each mysterious topic with a hint of skepticism, so if you are not naturally inclined towards anything supernatural but still enjoy a good story these are for you. The narrators make a point to thoroughly investigate and research the subjects they chose to cover and provide concrete facts int he form of newspaper articles, testimonies, books and academic research. The podcast is available on their website, iTunes and Spotify.

“The Black Tapes” – PNWS

I found this podcast over the summer and honestly, it is one of the best horror/mystery podcasts out there. Although the plot is a complete work of fiction, it is designed to sound as authentic as “Serial.” The podcast follows Alex Reagan, a radio host and reporter who seeks the help of myth buster Dr. Richard Strand to help her uncover a mysterious disappearance. Pro tip: “The Black Tapes” must be listened to consecutively, so no skipping around! The podcast will soon air its third season and can be found on iTunes and Spotify.

“In the Dark” – APM Reports

This podcast, which is hosted by Madeleine Baran delves into the mysterious circumstances surrounding the case of Jacob Wetterling. The interesting part? Wetterling’s disappearance from a small Minnesota town took place 27 years ago and the killer was only revealed in 2016. Baran’s interviews navigates over 20 years of cold leads, police investigations, eyewitness testimony and the testimony of the police who were in charge of the case at that time. “In the Dark” can be listened to on Spotify and iTunes.

  1. I love the idea of this blog! I love podcasts and listen to a huge variety of different ones. I am not someone who really likes scary things and horror movies but I do like both of these podcasts! I have listened to both of them and if a wimp like me can listen to them then anyone can. They are both so interesting and keep me on the edge of my chair. I cannot wait to see what else you write about!

  2. I appreciate your blog topic in general! I will be honest I hate scary movies. They don’t excite me, they just give me anxiety. Now podcasts on the other hand is a different story. I loved “Serial” as well and it introduced me to podcasts. I love listening to podcasts in the car so I will definitely tune in to “Stuff you missed,” it sounds interesting!
