5 Spooky podcasts to give you chills this Halloween

Podcasts are becoming increasingly popular and, for those familiar, this should come as no surprise. When done well, they can tell compelling stories that draw listeners in and keep them engaged and eager to hear more. Podcasts can be listened to at home, in the car or while you’re out on a walk through headphones. The topics can range from sports to music, news to comedy, or even creepy and compelling stories that are typically shared around a campfire…

With the arrival of Halloween, we thought we’d round up five mysterious podcasts that are sure to give any day extra spook factor. Fair warning: once you start listening, you may not be able to stop (or get to sleep, for that matter)!
