If you have this persistent anxiety the origins of which are often unclear, listening to this while sipping with a hot cup of chamomile, valerian or any calming herb tea, might be just what the (metaphorical) doctor ordered.

I love this podcast but I had to skip the entire first season because I listen at night and the whistling is so obnoxious! I like to listen back to back so it wouldn’t matter for just one as I can skip it, but by episode 2 I’m falling asleep and it jolts me awake. It’s so awful! Her voice is...Read full review »

Why do more people not know about this. I found this a few months ago and have loved each and every episode. I am only halfway through them and I’m already worried about what to do when I finish them... probably listen again from the beginning. Our narrator has a wonderfully soothing voice and...Read full review »

My roommate and I have devoured over 25 episodes tonight and we have no plans to stop any time soon, I still listen to this when I go to sleep and I have to back track bc I cant not latch onto every word and every song spoken by both creator and narrator. Please don’t stop any time soon

Somehow this podcast mingles a soothing orator telling heart-racing stories reminiscent of Poe. From the music (originally composed) to the language to the intonation of each word, the stories are the perfect nightcap of literary horror. Kristen is a master writer, performer, composer and...Read full review »

Thank you

I stumbled upon this show and the wonderful Kristen Zaza after searching for narrative horror podcasts. I had not listened to one told from this perspective in a long time and wanted to give it a go. Absolutely glad I did, after 5 episodes I had decided to listen to the entire show from the...Read full review »

I feel this character 🐿🐇🦨🦫🐾Having recently acquired a forest of my own where I cultivate beauty and spiders and consult my cards and watch the moon. Her way of speaking, her femininity which is real, soft, yet dangerous, the constant nature metaphors. I love it. All of it.
Jennifer Mulraney via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/06/21
This is the best podcast for all occasions. I listen to it when I am going to sleep and throughout the day. The stories are creative and refreshing.
Swiizzlestyx via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/23/21
I’m so glad I found this. Kind, thoughtful, and eerie all wrapped up in one wonderful package.
Ellie Holly via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/17/21

Every one of these are wonderful. Can’t believe it took me this long to find them.
MarkFromMaryland via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 05/10/21
Twice this week, this has worked. I’ve played this podcast in the background, and managed to fall asleep.
WilliamQuill via Apple Podcasts · Ireland · 04/03/21
I stay up late every tuesday night so I can enjoy the new episode right away! Every week it’s pure magic. If you’re looking for a friend to to wander the woods with, ponder the unknowable wonders and explore your soul with, this podcast is for you and me. Our narrator is everything I could ever...Read full review »

The sounds, the voice, the stories. I love this podcast! If you’re searching for something surreal and a little spooky to drift off to, this is it.
Ayrenia via Apple Podcasts · Germany · 02/26/21
Captivating story, within a story, within a story. The writer, creator, and narrator is truly gifted. Thank you for sharing your gifts. Hugs and best wishes.

The perfect bedtime story. Eerily comforting :)
Element.Kev via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 02/11/21
I reviewed this before and criticized the theme song. Just started season 2 and the whistling is GONE! Thank you, thank you! Now this is a perfect podcast. I love it so much. I could listen to Kristen's voice all day.Read full review »
HollyHermit via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 12/16/20
I love to listen before bed. Kristen has the most soporific tone to her voice that I set my sleep timer and to be honest, have rarely finished an episode in its entirety. Not an issue though, I get to listen twice!
chihuahuahuahuahua via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 12/16/20
Her voice...the stories....the music.... This is, hand’s down, the best sleep podcast out there!
Matabar via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 12/06/20
I love feeding my inner child, being able to dream and come up with the most impossible of things. This podcast helps take me back to a time when stories were read to me and ispired me to create my own. A moment just for me, right before I enter the world of dreams.
Tuptine via Apple Podcasts · Belgium · 11/23/20
reeeally good.
Romone Starboard via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 11/07/20
Finally something soothing with good/calming music and good stories! Helps me sleep soooooo much!
zaraaaa5 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 10/29/20
Her stories take me away to a place where my imagination has always felt most comfortable Her words are so eloquently spoken I simply get lost in her voice On a Cold Dark Night is the last step in my nightly rituals Thank you ! Absolutely love this podcast!!
BrendaMc67 via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 10/20/20
I love this podcast! The stories are creepy, but comforting. Her voice is so soothing, and the stories are beautifully written. Everytime I listen, I feel like I'm transported to another world. And it's been amazing for my insomnia. Who knew creepy could be so relaxing!Read full review »

I recently found this podcast and I’m so glad I did. It has just a right amount of creep without being overly scary. I love the way the stories are told, so soothing. This podcast brings joy to my creepy-story-loving self. Definitely recommend especially during spooky season. 👻
LalaKling via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 10/07/20
I love this podcast. Spooky but calming stories. Her voice is so soothing it makes me fall asleep before the end of the episode so I have to listen to it again the next day.
SueLapp via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 10/06/20
I love this podcast! Her voice helps me sleep every night. Each episode is unique and enticing. I enjoy the theme music it’s calming and comforts me.
pinkzoesbb via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 10/02/20
<3 I tend to get taken out of the moment and stuck on niggly little things like misspoken words and poor grammar. That is why I love this podcast. If Frasier is your kind of show but you’re also a bit of a creep... listen in.
Viralponic via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 09/18/20
I love Kristen’s stories! Her slow soothing voice and her original music make this a great sleep podcast. The stories are kind of fairytale-esque with classic horror themes, told by a mysterious narrator. I put this on every night and sometimes the stories weave their way into my dreams, it’s the...Read full review »
kellbellofboston via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 09/04/20
Love the narration and the stories. The music however is a bit like nails on the blackboard and jarring when trying to relax, but that’s pretty minor. Great podcast otherwise!
Mel Wing via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 08/26/20
In the depths of night, it is sometimes all one can do not to go mad...or perhaps choose to step into the void of questioning one’s own sanity. When sleep is not an option, On a Dark Cold Night certainly is. This is not your average bedtime ghost story series. Every week I get to spend time...Read full review »

My wife and I love to turn out the lights, get comfortable and listen to Kristen Zaza speak as the narrater that is going to tell us a story. Her voice and sound effects are perfect. Her stories are original, and she manages to avoid cliches. How she does this once a week is a mystery in itself.
Howard Gostin via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 08/13/20
Found this podcast to help me sleep and it definitely helps. The stories are so good I now almost wish I could stay awake to hear the whole episode! Thanks Zaza, queen of soothing spooky stories. 😍
mehhmaid via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 08/05/20
So happy to see this podcast is back; soothing, spooky stories that are the highlight of my week. I find them so relaxing before bed, thank you so much!
