I stumbled across this Youtube channel the other day and I thought I'd pass it along to Pseudopod listeners. All of the stories are of the old-fashioned variety (Poe, Lovecraft, M.R. James, and various Weird Tales authors) so they may not be for for everyone. It appears that it is always the same dude reading every story so you won't get the variety of voices that we get here.  He's a good reader though, and his voice fits the style of most of the stories.

I've only scratched the surface so far but I've found a couple of stories that I like. "Uneasy Lie the Drowned" by Donald Wandrei, "The Horror in the Hold" by Frank Belknap Long, and "The Human Chair" by Edogawa Ranpo are probably my three favorites of the dozen episodes I've listened to so far.

Nice!  Thanks for the heads-up, Marlboro.  I like falling asleep to audio stories, even horror stories, so I’ll definitely check out this channel.
