If you’ve never heard about podcasts, it’s high time for you to start listening (no pun intended).
Podcasts are now one of the most popular forms of entertainment not only because it is accessible, but also because it only requires one skill—listening. (LOOK: Noli de Castro’s ‘Magandang Gabi Bayan’ Is Now on YouTube) In fact, there are a shocking number of podcasts that are now available online, so no matter what topic you’re interested in, you’ll find one that is dedicated to it.
At the moment, horror is one of the most popular podcast genres out there. And quite luckily for horror fans, there are a lot of podcasts on streaming sites like Spotify that span from true crime, ghost tales, mystery, to supernatural delights.
With that in mind, today, My Pope looks at three local spooky podcasts to keep you awake at night!
Horror Podcasts: Hilakbot TV
Hilakbot TV is a Filipino podcast on Spotify that is perfect for horror-heads. Each episode is read by Jared Christopher Vince delos Santos a.k.a host RED and the stories are either written by the Hilakbot team or from different Wattpad writers in the country.
“We’d like our listeners to imagine what is happening as if they were also involved [in the] scene. This might be very challenging [but] we guess [it’s] effective especially for horror fanatics [who don’t want to watch] horror movies [or are too lazy to read] horror stories,” says Story Editor Rhiko Loko.
Horror Podcasts: Wag Kang Lilingon
No, this is not the 2006 horror film starring Anne Curtis and Kristine Hermosa. The Spotify podcast Wag Kang Lilingon is the brainchild of two horror and true crime fans Grace and Mimai. In the podcast, the two talk about local beliefs spanning from engkantos to spine-tingling superstitions. If you want to listen to all things horror, suspense, and mystery? Wag Kang Lilingon is perfect for you.
Horror Podcasts: Creepsilog
Creepsilog is not your ordinary podcast as listening to it feels like a typical kwentuhan with your barkada. Hosted by longtime friends Gideon Mendoza and Glenn Tabarejos, Creepsilog is a podcast on Spotify that talks about anything related to the paranormal. But not only that, to complete the package, they also talk about true crime stories and strange phenomena just like the things we talk when we are with our barkadas during sleepovers.
Creepsilog just posted their 109th episode on Spotify, so check them out today for that spooky Halloween feels!
