'Spooked' Is The Podcast Of The Season

Hair-raising ghost stories for the Halloween season!

'Spooked' Is The Podcast Of The Season

There's a chill in the air, and it's not just from the recent wind and rain. Halloween is coming on fast, and I am so excited to see (or rather, hear) Spooked is back for its sophomore season.This creepy podcast presented by WNYC Studios showcases true stories of supernatural encounters from people all around the world. Host Glynn Washington presents spine-chilling, bloodcurdling tales to keep you up at night in this countdown to All Hallows' Eve. If you scare easy, then this may not be for you.

The show features a new guest each week to share their story, but these aren't your typical I-heard-something-go-bump-in-the-night, fireside ghost stories. These stories will have you questioning everything you think you know about this world, even for those of us who tend to believe in what we cannot see.

Spooked has covered everything from disembodied voices to hauntings and possessions. Each episode transports the listener to unique locales and features creatures that are too real to make up. Not only are these stories original, but the guests are genuinely interesting and sympathetic characters. For many of the storytellers, their experience with the supernatural had a profound impact on their daily lives and that fear and uncertainty is palpable. The stories are extremely well-produced, giving the listener just enough detail to be intrigued and leaving just enough unsaid to unsettle, as only a good scary story can. If you're a skeptic, the podcast can at the very least be appreciated for its great entertainment value. If you're like me, you may not want to go to sleep at night.

While Spooked is fun (scary, but fun) anytime of the year, we are all so busy with school it can be tough to find time to enjoy all the Halloween festivities. Listening to Spooked on the way to class is a great way to celebrate as a busy college student. So, hang on to your headphones- it's time to get Spooked.

You can find Spooked on Spotify, Google Play, or wherever else you get your podcasts.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.

Challah vs. Easter Bread: A Delicious Dilemma

Is there really such a difference in Challah bread or Easter Bread?

Ever since I could remember, it was a treat to receive Easter Bread made by my grandmother. We would only have it once a year and the wait was excruciating. Now that my grandmother has gotten older, she has stopped baking a lot of her recipes that require a lot of hand usage--her traditional Italian baking means no machines. So for the past few years, I have missed enjoying my Easter Bread.

Top 10 Reasons My School Rocks!

Why I Chose a Small School Over a Big University.

I was asked so many times why I wanted to go to a small school when a big university is so much better. Don't get me wrong, I'm sure a big university is great but I absolutely love going to a small school. I know that I miss out on big sporting events and having people actually know where it is. I can't even count how many times I've been asked where it is and I know they won't know so I just say "somewhere in the middle of Wisconsin." But, I get to know most people at my school and I know my professors very well. Not to mention, being able to walk to the other side of campus in 5 minutes at a casual walking pace. I am so happy I made the decision to go to school where I did. I love my school and these are just a few reasons why.
