Darkly Lit is a monthly podcast that delves into horror literature.



Darkly Lit is a monthly podcast that delves into horror literature. Like an online book club, every 13th we read a different short novel or story. Coming together to discuss it and answer questions about the narrative from our listeners. Read along with Kaela Berry, Jesse "Seid" Reyes, and David King while they try to discover what makes for a scary read.

Join in the discussion through twitter @darklylitpod and Facebook.  Or email us your questions and comments about the story. darklylitpodcast@gmail.com


Meet our Hosts


Podcaster - Host

Kaela Berry hosts the podcast The Artist Tree, where she interviews artists, YouTubers, podcasters, actors, comedians, and other types of creatives, offering advice and ideas on how to become a part of the creative field, as well produce the horror podcast Midnight Marinara, managed by her boyfriend, David King.

She loves reading, especially sci-fi and horror, and even better when it's both, like "Frankenstein" by Mary Shelley, and "I Have No Mouth and I Must Scream" by Harlan Ellison.

An avid lover of horror and good stories. Producer and one of the hosts for The Witching Hour Podcast.

While not an heavy reader, I'm eager to take part as producer and join the team of hosts for Darkly Lit.

Recently, got back into doing comics. Have always enjoyed doing assorted crafts. From painting, sewing anything I can get my hands in.

Two of my favorite books are Exquisite Corpse by Poppy Z. Brite and Hero by Perry Moore.
