10 Perfect Podcasts to Get You Ready for Spooky Season

Spooky season is finally upon us! What is better than cuddling up and watching the scariest movies of all time? Absolutely nothing. But what do you do when you aren't off to get yourself in the Halloween mood? How do you get your scary-time fix to and from work or at the grocery store? If you don't have a solution, have no fear, I hold the key to a quick-fix right here!

While podcasts have been around for a few years, they've really jumped onto the radar in the last couple of years. And for all of you who live under a rock and don't know what a Podcast is, the best way to describe it is "television for your ears," according to fellow podcast network Public Radio Alliance.

Now, I've been diving deep into the podcast world for about 3 years, listening to all different types of genres. Out of the limitless possibilities out there, scary stories/horror is my absolute FAVORITE type of podcast. Here is a list of what I believe to be the top 10 best podcasts to give you the horror vibes needed for Halloween.

I'm the child of a Marine Veteran. He may have been out of the service by the time I was born, but the Patriotic Pride he lived by has been my family's life line. I grew up with the American Flag hanging in my front porch. My dad has the "Proud to be a Marine" license plate in the front of his car. And red, white, and blue is a completely acceptable way to decorate your living room. But it doesn't end with just that. You need to know why we celebrate freedom.

According to Katy Perry, "Baby You're a Firework." I don't know if she was referring to the Fourth of July when she was referencing fireworks, but this song has allowed this generation to rejoice. The song "Firework" allows people of all ages to appreciate the lyrics, as the song brings forth a positive state of mind. Unfortunately, just like the song, not every knows what the Fourth of July is actually for. Many just assume it is that one time of year you get to spend time barbecuing and see fireworks light up the sky. Even though many are not aware of the American historical significance, this holiday has annually encouraged people to come together happily, which could very much be the importance of it.

It's the one day of the year where everyone forgets their political biases or historic inaccuracies, at least for a while, to look back on the hazy, illustrious history of the United States.

But, while we celebrate what people like George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, and Patrick Henry did for this country, they are not the only ones who embodied the very virtues that our nation loves to advocate for. This Fourth of July, here are ten American women who history tends to forget, despite the groundbreaking things they did for their country.
