  • Love this podcast!

    I listen to this podcast while working because I am a truck driver. It really helps time pass at night and definitely gives me goosebumps when I’m alone in the middle of nowhere. It’s so entertaining and I’ll be watching some of the other podcasts soon. I would definitely recommend this to people who enjoy cryptids and the paranormal. If Darkness Prevails reads this I want to let you know how much I enjoy the show and I ordered some merch today to help support you.

  • Fake

    This sounds fake because we would live in terror if these monsters “were real” and I can Tell he’s using story’s off Wikipedia, and he obviously writes the story’s. But it’s not a really big deal so 2 stars.
