Description

For the week leading up to Halloween, scary stories that are all true. Kidnappings, zombie raccoons, haunted houses—real haunted houses!—and things that go "EEEEK!!!" in the night. Plus, a story by David Sedaris, in which he walks among the dead.

These medical professionals are a joke. It’s like the time I got my hand crushed by a dirty piece of ply wood, tons of deep splinters, and was told when I went to get a tetanus shot “oh you can only get tetanus from rusty metal”.

is it possible to do a New Yorker radio program not featuring David Sedaris? can we not escape the horrible, tedious claws of David Sedaris? if only David Sedaris was a ghost who can be banished.

Whoever told this woman in the rabies act that she had 10 to 14 days to get the vaccine should be fired. It's a 72 hour window from exposure that you have to get the shot 😠.
