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.
