Ghosts of New York City

Ghosts of New York City

2024-04-0201:29:47

You're home alone at night and, suddenly, fear grips you. You write it off as anxiety, until your partner calls and tells you they feel it too. Is it all internal? Or a nudge from an unseen world, letting you know danger is nearby? In this episode we explore stories where run-of-the-mill anxiety turns out to be a warning, and how the people experiencing those warnings reacted.

the narrator from nosleep who does so many (too many) audible narrations does caricature accents for all characters. Mrs doubtfires every female character, kids have to "Billy" mouth breathe and toddler lisp age 2 to 12. at 13 they get doubtfired or rooney-ed or sinister Chad or rooney-ed ( I stopped audible after witnessing barthelme short stories being slaughtered by these voices.

You can't make friends as an adult. it's impossible. everyone has their friends from youth and college, etc. and as an adult you can't find anyone who wants anymore friends. those who are friendly aren't interested in anything deeper. they aren't going to be there for you in good times and bad. friendship is overrated. you don't need it.

Isn't the baby crying noise just a bobcat or cougar or something like that?
