Pseudopod - a podcast of short horror stories.

They also do Escape Pod and Podcastle, both are often good, sometimes great, and sometimes eh, like any fantasy/SF magazine. I think they have been around for at least 3-4 years.

Via typing 'pseudopod' into my URL bar to see what happened.

I found this via Wil Wheaton's Twitter account yesterday. I downloaded the most recent story, but haven't listened yet because I'm behind on Jordan Jesse Go. Still, it looks pretty promising.

I want them read by a Vincent Price clone.

I'm a big Escape Pod fan. Psuedopod doesn't hit as often for me. I'm dimly aware of Podcastle (and it has the BEST NAME EVER for a fantasy podcast) but haven't listened.

Yeah, Escape Pod is pretty good. Although I downloaded a huge backlog of the stories and OD'd on the guy's distinctive voice so now I find it hard to listen. Still, many are read by others, so I'm not locked out.

They did one of my stories a couple of years ago, read by J.C. Hutchins. It was an interesting experience -- I've done lots of live readings of my own stories, but hearing someone else read it was entirely different. I've got to say, Hutchins really nailed one of the main characters -- I can't even re-read my own story without hearing those lines in his voice.

Thanks! I live for spoken word when I drive, bike, or walk a long long way. Now if I can only keep the cap on the bottle, so to speak, until my next trip.

Senator, put the word in and perhaps Dana Gould will oblige.

LOVE LOVE LOVE pseudopod. It's like This American Life for ghouls!

"The Price of Fear" is what you want, Senator. I've found some episodes on an old-time radio horror/thriller podcast via itunes.
People who like this sort of stuff might agree with me that podiobooks is good too. I recommend Mike Bennett's Hall of Mirrors anthology. Scott Sigler's Infected got its hooks into me as well.
