Did you know there’s apparently two versions of “6 Underground” by the Sneaker Pimps? One’s the original and one’s a remix. David didn’t until he started editing this episode… Oh, and he and Allen read a story about vampires.

Another banterclass episode wherein David, Allen and Mike talk about a bunch of stuff, eventually read the story, and then talk about more stuff. This might not be the one for you if you want a simple straight read, but for those who like hearing asinine conversation, this is the one for you.
"Boothworld Industries" as a whole is credited to Christopher Bloodworth. Read along here.
The meaning of life, the universe, and everything has nothing to do with this episode, but it is fitting that David meets with AJ, Gwen and Nate from Random Encounters 41 episodes later, somehow. This week brings a horror story of neglect, apathy and possible murder all buried in a gross detritus of human garbage.
“Meek” is credited to Mystreve. Read along here.
David and Prasokour don their protective gear and trudge into a Nosleep story without a NoSleep title, which is already a good sign. Will this anomalous arachnid account manage to snare the hosts in its narrative web, or will it be a the prose equivilant of a can of bug spray?

It’s the further adventures of Dr. Apathy, now adding detective to the list of things he’d done in this asinine trip into the troubled dreams caused by Ubloo. David, Kaela, Abysmii and Papreeka only now realize how long a haul this saga might be…

A harrowing disaster means David and guests Beth Morton and Skill Flea are forced to recover from a lost recording by reading a haunted doll story, pulled at random from the depths of the Creepypasta Wiki. Will this make up for that time?

Skill Flea’s Scare My Friends Writing Challenge ends December 23rd.
In a twist that surprised David, Kaela, Abysmii and Papreeka, what begins as a fairly straightforward read into a story about nightmares quickly reveals itself to be the hidden backstory of one of the UCAHACU's myriad characters. Does this make the story unintentionally more enjoyable? You bet it does.

The experiment of revisiting old Midnight Marinara stories continues, this time with David and Slimebeast as the test subjects. Together they go over the empirical data surrounding this popular Creepypasta from the early days of the genre, and see if it still holds up.

David invites Seid and Raevell of The Witching Hour back to discuss the piece that inspired Midnight Marinara's 2nd episode, the tale of a troubled artist and a very weird town. Is the story a true work of art, or did it take a remix from the Pasta Shade to turn a troubled tale into a gallery display?

With Midnight Marinara's 5th anniversary on the horizon, David introduces a new segment looking back at the stories that were adapted into audio drama. Does the source material for the first episode still hold up on its own? David and Kaela check in to find out.
"Just Telling Stories" was written by Karl Drinkwater. The version read here was originally posted on Creepypasta.com and is now removed. An updated version, along with several other short stories by Karl, can be found in his short story collection They Move Below here.
Our 13th episode in the new run (and 195th episode overall) features the Creative Horror Crew all together in the aftermath of Midsummer Scream, reading a story they started to cover at the Midnight Marinara panel the day before! David, Kaela, Allen, Seid, Abysmii, Papreeka and Matt Holley (with special guest appearances by Gracey) wonder: is this verbose tale of a creepy cookbook worth the effort to finish?
"The Book of the Ravenous" is credited to William Buckley. Read along here.
Summer is here, and David is melting. Lucky for him, Abysmii is also on hand to help scoop up this macabre memorandum set during World War II in the depths of a dark forest. Will the story be the morale boost the duo need, or is this epistolary story a Dear John letter?
"The Call of the Revenant" is credited to Isaac Boissonneau, aka Hopefullygoodgramar. Read along here.
David and Allen take a trip to the City of Angels for this story of a student film shoot gone wrong. Meanwhile, David contemplates the ultimate question by Allen even as they attempt to tackle the narrative and some ensuing technical issues.

David, Allen and Kaela get an express ticket to more human horrors in this story of a man's life, his near-death experience at the hands of an abusive father, and an encounter with a supernatural steam engine. Will the story make it to the end of the line intact, or will it lose its passengers along the way?

David and Allen tend to see one outcome for many of the stories they read, but the possibility that they will be pleasantly surprised always persists. Will this story of an average Joe's gradual moral decay at the hands of a sinister entity be a good read, or has that possibility been ruled out?
