Description

Radio broadcaster and parapsychologist Dr. Malcolm Ryder helps callers with their supernatural problems. He also delves into the dark and strange history of America. Callers are haunted by mysterious black doors, see ancient beings in their paisley wallpaper, have terrifying creatures appear in their cars on dark and lonely roads. In the history segment of our show, Ryder tells of the pyramid made of flesh in Palta, Arizona that appeared one morning, of how the Mississippi River is a sleeping leviathan, and of the last known sighting of the dark dealmaker, The Traveling Salesman.

I loved the show! I binged it in a single day at work. Also, I just have to say it... Dr. Ryder sounds EXACTLY like Ryuk from Death Note.

I wish this updated more. I'd feel more invested in it that way. But the super long breaks between episodes make it hard to think of it as a linear story. I really like it though.

I’m really liking it so far! I already love Kristen Holland’s work on Nocturnal Transmissions, so this seemed worth checking out. I have not been disappointed.
