    Such a spooky podcast!!
    I love this podcast so much! The stories always give me chills. I’m a bit of a wimp so I’m very thankful that there are trigger warnings so I know what I’m getting myself into. Let’s hope I don’t get nightmares!

    So so
    Not a great narrator (the main guy that does the creepy en espanol ad) Always seems lost. The stories don’t make any sense. No feel for a tense moment or sentence flow. Meh.
  • 🧟‍♂️🧟‍♀️🧟‍♂️🧟‍♀️
    By all means listen
    The attempt of word combinations and voice overs, the intent behind storytelling is to engulf the listener and what they have done here is superb in measure. It has caught my attention by miles. I absolutely love this podcast, and listen to this whenever the day has me down. And it always brings me up. I even listen to THE DARK SOMNIUM. On my off times. It’s absolutely awesome they do this. Love y’all scary stories.

    John Can Read Me the Phone Book
    … and I would still be enthralled. This is some of his best work out of the many podcasts and episodes he works with and on. Don’t sleep on John!

    It said that it was not explicit in the rating but then it says it is

    Love this pod!
    I started from the beginning episodes and am almost caught up to current episodes! Love this podcast so much! Especially loved the recent creep away camp!!

    This podcast is only as good as the creepy pastas they choose. Sometimes they’re really poorly written, sometimes they just have a few instances of poor vocabulary. Narration/reading is pretty good besides the guy whose inflection is so distracting and over the top that it’s hard to pay attention to the story- I usually skip his episodes. I also wish they would quit picking stories that have villainous fat people in them or character descriptions talking about how gross being fat is. It’s 2022, let’s move beyond demonizing an entire group of people for absolutely no reason. Very teenage-sounding writers from some of these stories but that’s how creepy pastas are sometimes. Looking forward to better picks in the future.
  • ElleHelle
    Reliably solid
    One of the only pods where I don’t skip the ads.. they’re like these bizarre little palette cleansing comedy/horror bits that make me laugh every time. That’s real talent to make me actually pay attention to the ads just as much as the feature

    Updating my review
    Needed to update my review, the latest episode was aMAZEing!!!! Thank you John for all the work you put into the show. And now in SPANISH! I am a fan for life. Definitely one of the very best podcasts out there. Old review: Everything else is amazing. Truly deserving of five stars but the music just KILLS the mood. It’s not terrible, just terribly wrong for the creepy feeling I’m looking for.

    The do you see my smile ore gave me chills
  • emmayaga
    One of the best but
    The “my name is garbage” had a quick bit of animal cruelty in it which wasn’t grotesque or over the top but I wish they had mentioned it in the trigger warnings. Otherwise, I’ve found them to be one of the best horror podcasts, especially of those that are considerate enough to include episode warnings. Great narrators and episode length - I will continue to listen!
  • Live Life for God
    Gang Stalker!!!
    This last one about the mother contacting the narrator…too close to home. MIL. Lots of good scary stories.
  • NewportBeachGirl
    Tied for my favorite podcast! The entertainment value is exquisite. I can listen to the Creepy Podcast’s mind-bending stories for hours. The stories are deliciously disturbing and the narration pulls you into new mysterious worlds. The tales are original and not a repeat like you hear on other podcasts. Highly recommended.
  • Miya Delbal
    Such great stories!
    Loved the camp series! I appreciate the longer episodes but they’re all great 👌
  • Dsahina
    Great stories
    I am loving the Creepaway Camp stories! Keep up the great work.
  • tavyn,age9 alaska
    Scary = ehh
    Not scary enough
  • Lil Lizifer X
    Love it, but
    I don’t know what happened but a lot of the voices lately just make me sleepy. Which, like. Aren’t most of us just perpetually depressed and exhausted lately anyway? Torn between loving horror writing and being supportive or like, falling asleep driving.
  • ElK969696
    Shots of What?!!
    Once the narrator says she’s doing shots of Malibu as she writes, everything that follows is suspect
  • rayanne53
    My favorite
    Best scary, spooky and sinister story collection out there.
  • King🧚✨
    I’ve found my horror fix 😂
    I listened to an episode for the first time ,and I wasn’t able to sleep that night!! That may seem bad, but I think it’s great B) Plus the voices used is perfeeeect 👀✨
  • K_Sted
    All day every day
    I can’t stop listening. Already donated. Let it never end
  • cupahotcocoa
    It’s so good it’s like an orgasm for your ears!!! 😂😂
  • amrcorbin
    My favorite podcast by far!! Love it!!
  • +4:30
    Love Nate Dufort
    Production quality is great, but I absolutely find the Dufort episodes to be the best of the best.
  • 34673826383928102947
    Used to be better back when they were covering older original stories
    This podcast has slowly gotten worse over time, back when it was just John it was great, but slowly the podcast ran out of the stories that made it great, and with the hire of pretty bad voice actors and the onslaught of modern stories, it just got worse, which is ok, I’m from Minnesota as well and is still support the podcast, but to anyone listening from the beginning it unfortunately gets worse and the constant pushing of the LGBTQ agenda gets tiring over time.
  • Amy True Crime Review
    Annoying ads annoying voice
    Host has the worst voice and the ads are awful
  • I'm Kimberly
    Sometimes it’s good
    This one is really hit-or-miss, story-wise and not all narrators are great. I’m getting a little annoyed that every story that takes place in a remote area is narrated with an egregious “southern” accent (the latest one 03may2022 is in Vermont smh). No, not everyone who lives in the woods or on a farm sounds like that. Cole Burkhardt and JV Hampton-VanSant both have a sardonic inflection in every single story they narrate and it gets old fast especially with Burkhardt’s vocal fry on top of it. Michelle Kane, Nate DuFort, and Danielle Hewitt are usually great. Jon Grilz is decent in the gas station jack stories, but Owen McCuen really outshines everyone in that.
  • Sipter
    Cole Burkhardt
    I enjoy this podcast, but Cole, you need to stop with that enunciation in your voice. I know you can speak with a straightforward inflection because it does come out every so often. Good god I’ve had this review from a while back but it’s the same annoying voice. Chill out with the wannabe Katherine Hepburn crap. Ugh.
  • Daniblaze
    One of my favorite podcasts that I eagerly anticipate every week. The stories and voices are *chef’s kiss*. I’m so glad you’re full time now! Congratulations and thank you for providing us with a top tier podcast!
  • Five2midnight
    It WAS creepy
    From horror to eye rolling.
  • Steibz
    Great podcast until it went woke...
    I used to listen to this all night from season one because I'm a truck driver. The stories in the first few seasons were very interesting and frightening, but recently I can't even stand to listen to the show anymore. Woke culture ruins everything. It's a darn shame.
  • Just a lonely drawer
    One of my favorite creepy podcasts!
    I normal listen to creepy stories when I draw. When I first started listening to these stories I loved them but they sometimes scare the crap out of me but that’s what I love about them! Keep it up :)
  • GrumpyGurl1081
    I want to get this out of the way first...Jon, if u keep making ur HILARIOUS ads, no one is going pay for ur show!!! That statement alone should tell everyone and anyone the love, care, and dedication Jon and ALL of the members of the Creepy team bring to this incredible podcast. This was the podcast that introduced me to the world of podcasts!!! And I’ve been in love and 110 percent dedicated ever since. Creepy is the best of the best in that it was the “gateway drug” into all other horror and speculative fiction podcasts but it will ALWAYS be first and favorite. The stories, narration, production, and overall quality are top notch. Jon and his cast of narrators, and production team are incredible!! Besides their terrifying stories, they also are totally inclusive of all genders, races, backgrounds, and all other minorities and groups that are so under represented in horror stories without seeming preachy. I know other podcasts have done the same but CREEPY was my first to really see that all inclusiveness. That aside, this podcast lives up to its name and is truly a chilling, spine tingling, and terrifying adventure EVERYONE can enjoy!!! And whether u become a Patron or not the stories r AMAZING and the ads that Jon and his cast make r HILARIOUS!!! KEEP UP THE GREAT WORK EVERYONE!!!!
  • Rev. Madison
    Consistently Creepy
    Good stories. Good narration. Couldn’t ask for a better podcast.
  • kajehdhdksoahdvs
    Great stuff
    Love the pod, a few snoozers from time to time but overall a lovely catalog of spooky stories to enjoy, and even fall asleep to if that’s your thing. The team involved does a great job and I HIGHLY recommend the Bedside Manor saga… I’ve listened to it a few times now and it’s just as entertaining and engaging as any horror/sci fi movie. If you’re not listening, you’re missing out
  • Peaceful Warrior 86erc
    Used to be good but...
    They used a transmission as narrator for their first “women in horror appreciation month” story. This podcast pushes whatever agenda the MSM tells them too. Big ol' pile of sticks.
  • rh shorts doge
    Great show but
    Does anyone else get confused when there’s for instance a female voice but the character is a guy? Don’t care about anybody’s sexuality but it can make the story hard to follow.
  • ldro323!
    My new favorite pod!
    This is one of my favorites, so it’s about time I leave a review. Sure, some episodes and narrators are better than others, but that’s the fun of it. I’m shocked by how much content they’re able to pump out, but love it! I read other reviews and have never thought this show was too political. Also, I love the Minnesota accent.
  • Kat_L0ver19
    This podcast is one of the only ones that can keep me interested for HOURS! I can’t describe how much I LOVE this podcast! Thanks to the people who created this pod and act in it! This is just enough humor, gore, graphic sounds (don’t think that’s a thing), and horror for me (my mom and my brothers get too scared... wimps.). Anyway, I also enjoy the Jacks Gas-station stories (or whatever it’s called). Again, THANK YOU!
  • AvandZi
    Love for humanity and horror!
    I love this podcast and I especially love anything pertaining to “Gas Station Jack”!
  • ASerialFinatic
    Latest episode
    The unexpected “that wasn’t very cash money of you” had me crying at work. Thank you for that.
  • Jmt1978
    Am I trippin or is this weeks story(Bedside Manor) a rerun???
  • Savagevixen
    Love to fall asleep to it
    Wonderful horror anthology show. If you don’t like one story, you’ll probably love the next five. Host’s voice makes it perfect to listen to as you fall asleep to since there are no cheap jump scares or random screams like in some anthologies. I love it, give it a listen!
  • GinaGGrogan
    Really enjoyed the last few episodes!
  • Creepy2022
    Absolutely my favorite podcast
    This is an absolute thriller.. I listen on my 45 min drive to work in the dark early hours of the morning… it is so good I find myself even listening on my breaks if there is an episode I missed. I love it. The most recent story told over a few days was awesome. I could listen to him read or tell a story every day. Thank you for this podcast!
  • SparklyGuts
    Love it
    This podcast is amazing. I think Joe is the most incredible narrator. I just finished the episodes of Promises we Make in December, and it was so beautifully done. So thankful for a podcast that gives incredible dark and lovely stories year round. 🖤
  • dhdhenkznfmslpwe
    The Best
    This is the best of the scarey podcasts in my opinion. There are more than a few like this but they aren't very original and somewhat hokey. It took me a few episodes but once I started listening I was hooked. Would highly recommend! Also, the Joe Stofko episodes are my favorite, wish they would have him in more of the stories. If anyone with any authority sees this, give me more Joe Stofko.
  • CallMeErnie or BigErn
    Not as good as it used to be….
    Stories aren’t scary anymore. Neither are all the commercials.
  • elamental homie
    Frickin awesome!!!!!
    Dude this podcast is amazing! The stories aren’t that scary but they’re just creepy enough to be interesting. Iv listens for almost 4 years and it’s only gotten better. This podcast is a great way to let off steam after a long day of making sandwiches for ungrateful sons of bi… I mean it’s a great podcast to listen to if you like to get chillz run down your spine. Highly recommend this podcast! I ALWAYS listen to your podcast while I’m going to bed. It gives me nightmares but I don’t give a flying f**k 🤣
