“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 with my friend, the narrator. She is powerfully vulnerable in her infinite wisdom, collected through the centuries and told to us through stories.
These stories reflect the beauty, the pain, the love, the hurt and anger. They warn against greed and the dangers of desperation, despair and desire that we all know and feel, even if we don’t like to acknowledge those feelings.
In the end though after all of the horrors of the world are unleashed, we as the listener are left with hope. With understanding that we get to choose what we become and what we own. We get to choose the parts of ourselves that we give power to and take power from. We are comforted as the story ends and we drift off to sleep..or queue up another story, that tomorrow’s will happen regardless, and it’s within our grasp to make tomorrow better than today.
This podcast has become my favorite recently for all these reasons and more. It’s accessible to anyone from the very first episode.
So don’t be afraid to check out this gem. You might just make a new friend who is able to impart her wisdom unto thee.”
