Description of the podcast:
This is a podcast telling short horror stories with unexpected funny endings.
At the beginning of the story, the storytellers try to make a very horrifying feeling using death-related or weird events which happened to “me” in the story. As the story develops, it gets more and more horrifying. But every time when “I” meet the “ghost”, or about to get killed, or see some terrible scene, the story will end in a clever and amusing way.
Even though it’s a horror story podcast, you won’t get any bad dreams or other uncomfortable feelings, but it may make you surprised and engaged by the humorous endings.
It is noteworthy that this is marked as explicit content since it contains slight violence or bloody content.
This podcast is highly recommended if you love funny ghost stories!
