For those of you who don’t know, Pseudopod is a horror fiction podcast. Every week they post a new story to their site, usually somewhere between 20 and 45 minutes long and usually between 2000 and 6000 words in length. It also irregularly releases shorter flash fiction pieces and movie reviews. It’s free to download, and you can share it with whoever you want as long as you don’t alter it or sell it.

Despite the catchphrase at the top of the page that precedes each episode, the stories are fictional. The readings are sometimes read by the editors, and other times performed by professional voice actors. The stories themselves vary from subtly disquieting to gruesomely horrifying and are frequently NSFW.

This podcast was launched on 11 August 2006 and is a part of Escape Artists, Inc. which also podcasts Escape Pod and PodCastle. This podcast is currently co-edited by Shawn M. Garrett and Alex Hofelich and hosted by Alasdair Stuart.
