John heard from someone (Collin Gable?) that you're back in town. It's been a while, and he'd love to grab a drink and catch up. You two have a lot to talk about, actually. Unless you think you're too good for him, now that you've moved away and made a name for yourself as some Hollywood big shot. But you don't think that... do you?   www.JohnFromBackHome.com   Music: Closing My Eyes For A Moment by Daniel Birch, Hydroscope by Gallery 6, Indigo Moon by Daniel Birch, You Little Tiger by Camden, Cold Summer Landscape by Blear Moon, Untitled1 by Grouper, Everything Else Will Fix Itself by Daniel Birch   Artwork by Alex Crawford   Sam Gooley as John   Written and Produced by Scott McCarrey

You're still not picking up the phone, but John has more to say. He's really proud of you, y'know. He's followed your whole career from back home. Your whole life, actually. He's been watching everything you put on social media. He knows what your neighborhood looks like. And what your apartment looks like. And what bar you go to. And what happened with you and your girlfriend. He's been watching it all.   www.JohnFromBackHome.com   Music: Closing My Eyes For A Moment by Daniel Birch, Biology Slides by Bleak House, Sustained Light 1 by Daniel Birch, Backspace (Daydream Version) by Blear Moon, Further Discovery by Blear Moon, Everything Else Will Fix Itself by Daniel Birch   Artwork by Alex Crawford   Sam Gooley as John   Written and Produced by Scott McCarrey
Things have been pretty rough for John ever since you left. Not that you've bothered to check in. Everything started to go down hill when his dad died. It's been up to him to keep everything in his family together, and some days he doesn't feel like he has anything left over for himself. Do you know that feeling? Oh yeah, and then there's the mysterious guns he's been finding all over the house. What do you think he should do with them?   www.JohnFromBackHome.com   Music: Closing My Eyes For A Moment by Daniel Birch, What Is by Captive Portal, Backspace (Daydream Version) by Blear Moon, Untitled1 by Grouper, Sustained Light 1 by Daniel Birch, 11,600 Years Ago by Blear Moon,  Everything Else Will Fix Itself by Daniel Birch   Artwork by Alex Crawford   Sam Gooley as John   Written and Produced by Scott McCarrey
John's in trouble. He lost his job and got kicked out of the house. He doesn't have a lot of money, so he's gonna have to find somewhere to stay. That's tough to do when all your friends have left home and you don't really hang out with anyone who stayed behind. On the plus side, he might have figured out what to do with those guns.  www.JohnFromBackHome.com   Music: Closing My Eyes For A Moment by Daniel Birch, This Is by Captive Portal, Further Discovery by Blear Moon, You Little Tiger by Camden, Charcoal by Camden, Must by Blear Moon, Hydroscope by Gallery 6, Everything Else Will Fix Itself by Daniel Birch   Artwork by Alex Crawford   Sam Gooley as John   Written and Produced by Scott McCarrey
Episode 5: Your House

Episode 5: Your House

2022-10-1813:17

Dude! Your place looks exactly the same as it did in high school. It's a real trip for John, it's like he walked into a time capsule. Same video games, same soda in the fridge, same VHS tapes of shows recorded off of MTV. Although, actually, there are a few differences. The hospital bed in the living room, that didn't use to be there. And then there are strange noises in the walls that are keeping John awake at night.   www.JohnFromBackHome.com   Music: Closing My Eyes For A Moment by Daniel Birch, Drift by Daniel Birch, Biology Slides by Bleak House, Indigo Strokes by Daniel Birch, Must by Blear Moon, Hydroscope by Gallery 6, Everything Else Will Fix Itself by Daniel Birch   Artwork by Alex Crawford   Sam Gooley as John   Written and Produced by Scott McCarrey

Episode 6: The Attic

John stayed up all night trying to find the source of the crying in the walls. He even went up into the attic when he couldn't think of anywhere else to go. And somehow, what he found there might even be creepier than the mysterious crying.   www.JohnFromBackHome.com   Music: Closing My Eyes For A Moment by Daniel Birch, Further Discovery by Blear Moon, Cold Summer Landscape by Blear Moon, Indigo Sun by Daniel Birch, M by Gallery 6, Untitled1 by Grouper, K by Gallery 6, Everything Else Will Fix Itself by Daniel Birch   Artwork by Alex Crawford   Sam Gooley as John   Written and Produced by Scott McCarrey
John went into the room behind the mirror, and... dude, your house is seriously messed up. He really doesn't want to be here anymore. But... at the same time... it's like there's something from inside that room that's calling to him. Something he feels like he needs to get to know better.   www.JohnFromBackHome.com   Music: Closing My Eyes For A Moment by Daniel Birch, Must by Blear Moon, M by Gallery 6, Ongoing Cases by Blear Moon, Everything Else Will Fix Itself by Daniel Birch   Artwork by Alex Crawford   Sam Gooley as John   Written and Produced by Scott McCarrey
Well, John found the big secret your house is hiding. It's definitely pretty weird, but nothing all that special. So, that's that, it's probably time for him to call it a day and leave your creepy old place for good. Except... hang on... are those eyes around that corner?   www.JohnFromBackHome.com   Music: Closing My Eyes For A Moment by Daniel Birch, Everything Else Will Fix Itself by Daniel Birch   Artwork by Alex Crawford   Sam Gooley as John   Written and Produced by Scott McCarrey

I love this badass F***in podcast, I am completely absorbed in the story, the narrator is cool and you can definitely sympathize. Very cool idea, I hope it goes on forever..... into the sunset of our collective imaginings......Fu*k John!!!

this story is BONKERS. Well done. My only critique is John's non-reactipn to things. Most people would be very upset or frightened about the stuff that happens in episodes 5-9. He seems oddly unphased
