About

The Podcast: 
The Mysterious Old Radio Listening Society Podcast revisits the great horror, crime, and suspense shows from the golden age of radio, including tales from Suspense, Lights Out, Quiet Please, The Shadow, and more. Each episode features a classic, or maybe-not-so classic story from the old-time radio vault, complete with historical notes and nerdy trivia. At the end of each installment, your hosts, Tim, Joshua and Eric discuss the merits of the story, and decide whether or not it stands the test of time.

The Release Schedule:
We release episodes weekly. The exact day of the week is usually a surprise. Even to us.

Who We Are:
Ghoulish Delights is a Minneapolis-based theater company that specializes in bringing tales of suspense and horror to the stage. In 2016, Ghoulish Delights founder Tim Uren, along with frequent collaborators Eric Webster and Joshua English Scrimshaw, created The Mysterious Old Radio Listening Society Podcast. For more information about Ghoulish Delights and your Mysterious Old Hosts, please visit www.ghoulishdelights.com.

Why We Do It:
We love old-time radio. What’s more, we love talking about old-time radio. The internet is full of podcasts that repackage old-time radio shows, but we are one of the few to include analysis and discussion. We post a poll on our website with each new episode and encourage listeners to share their thoughts and opinions. We want to connect and communicate with existing fans of old-time radio as well as introduce these great shows to new listeners.

Your Support:
We love making this podcast, but researching, recording, and editing weekly episodes is a considerable amount of work. In addition to our time, there are expenses related to recording equipment and web hosting. Don’t worry though. We plan to make this podcast for the foreseeable future, but your support will make weekly episodes more manageable and allow us the freedom to create more content.

The Bottom Line:
Membership is not required to enjoy The Mysterious Old Radio Listening Society. Although we offer rewards for membership, our regular weekly podcast will not change or disappear behind a paywall. If you love the podcast and want to support it through a membership, we are very grateful. If you love the podcast and can’t or don’t want to support it through a membership, we are also very grateful. Thank you all for listening!
Goals
$683.63 of $700 per month
Another exciting goal reached! We have posted the pilot episode for a possible new video podcast called The Mysterious Old Radio Watching Society, featuring episodes from television adaptations of classic old-time radio thrillers! Watch it on our Youtube channel now!
