Five Scary Podcasts for Halloween – Spooktober

Tales from Beyond the Pale

Last but not least, and sadly on hiatus for now, is Tales from Beyond the Pale, a collection of audio dramas presented in a style reminiscent of old radio pulp tales but also like Tales From the Crypt.

Larry Fessenden and Glenn McQuaid have been creating together since 2010, releasing audio CDs, and performing live until the podcast was launched in 2019. There are forty seven unique and uncanny stories, leaning heavily into black comedy and real scares, that still draw new listeners today and have veterans hoping that there will be more to come.

Mostly written by Fessenden and McQuaid, with some shows featuring guest writers, Tales has featured a number of famous voices lending their performances to these macabre stories, including Misha Collins (Supernatural), Doug Jones (Star Trek: Discovery), Billy Boyd and Dominic Monaghan (The Lord of the Rings), Ron Perlman (Hellboy) and Tony Todd (Candyman).

You could pick any of the forty seven tales to play on Halloween night and we guarantee you will not be disappointed.
