Take out your phone, put on your headphones, and listen to one of the best horror podcasts you’ve ever heard…if you dare.
#5. The Last Podcast on the Left
If there is something supernatural to talk about, the men from The Last Podcast on the Left will debate it. These best friends are willing to discuss everything from cults to demons. It’s deliciously scary, and Spotify has declared it the spookiest podcast available.
#4. Dark House
Are there any interior design enthusiasts out there eager to be scared this October? Meet the Dark House podcast from House Beautiful. Hosts and House Beautiful editors Hadley Mendelsohn and Alyssa Fiorentino go into some of the most chilling true crime/Paranormal Activity scenarios. Take a walk, not a run.
#3. Parcast Presents: Halloween
Every single episode of the Parcast Presents Halloween is fully dedicated to a whole different freakish topic: urban legends, serial killers, ghosts, ghouls, and more. From your classic babysitting-gigs-gone-wrong to stories about Marie Antoinette, there is a plethora of yikes-inducing content available to listen to.
#2. Dr. Death
What scares you more than ghosts, zombies, and vampires? A neurosurgeon who commits heinous errors during spine procedures, resulting in lasting disabilities and even death. To be honest, this is the stuff of real-life nightmares. Oh, and it’s been adapted very well into a Peacock series. You can watch after binge-watching all the Wondery podcast episodes.
#1. Murder in Oregon
If you binge-watched Making a Murderer, you need to listen to iHeartRadio’s Murder in Oregon. It’s about the 1989 assassination of Michael Francke, the director of Oregon’s Department of Corrections. Though a heroin dealer was convicted of the crime, detectives are now convinced—thirty years after the fact—that Michael was murdered by someone else. This podcast is dedicated to establishing the truth.
