Before we launch back into the regular season episodes fully, Jennifer catches us all up with what's been happening at the Lofts and at the Ridge, including a few new details, and even a spooky sneak peak into what comes next. But first, where were we?
This short story was also based on a suggestion from a Neighbor and Patron! We'll take a ride with a health care professional as she starts her long day working through the pandemic -- and as if that wasn't a scary enough, she'll have even more tagging along.
This short story was chosen by the Neighbors in the podcast Facebook discussion group....and I swore I'd never go /there/ :)
In this little tale, we'll spend some time trying to figure out just what is going on with all the missing people at the lake.
So many are trying to do what they can to help out during this pandemic, and some have found distraction and production in pulling out their dusty sewing machines and making masks. In this shorter tale, two roommates do what they can to help, and just stay safe, and alive during self-isolation.
This next short little spook takes place in a neighborhood Jennifer knows well -- but we'll hear about it from Trish, and her townhouse neighbor Connor.
Special thanks to listener Jules Anne for providing the name of a character in this Quaran-teeny! She also wins an e-copy of the Anthology "Asylum" of which listener Marie Sterling is a contributing writer.
Our second "Quaran-teeny" touches on one of all of our biggest nightmares right now --- running out of toilet paper! Join Jack as he does a little at-home amateur ghost-hunting to catch the spirit who he believes is stealing his precious commode-ity!
As announced, we will be releasing an anthology of short spooky tales while the quarantine continues. When folks are ready and life is less topsy-turvy, we'll return to the regular storyline episodes.
Our first "Quaran-teeny" was based on requests from a special listener, Neighbor and Patron, Jennifer S. She was looking for a spooky tale about gardening, spring time and spending time with her flowers. We also incorporated a few names that are favorites of hers. Enjoy!
With things more than unsettled in the city, we'll spend this episode watching the woods. Round back with Max and Theo, meet new neighbor Nyles, and share a chilling afternoon with Adelaide, all at the Ridge in this fourth episode.
Things have grown a bit dark at both the Lofts and the Ridge in this episode, but we'll meet a new neighbor, Evie, and hear her story. We'll also check back in with Jennifer, John, Dani and Benjamin too - plus get an update on the renovations at the cabin.
Since some expressed a bit of concern for Alabaster and his well-being after Episode 2, I thought it was a fine time to let his voice be heard. Sit back for a different kind of ghost story from days before the Lofts!
Alabaster is voiced by the crazy-talented CK of Mirths & Monsters.
