Halloween is coming soon. We plan out our creative costumes and look forward to pigging out on candy. Typically, many of us watch horror movies for a dose of Halloween fear. But, we have another idea for getting yourself into the Halloween spirit. Celebrate the spookiness of October with some scary podcasts. Bringing in creepy stories, mysteries, music and sounds, these podcasts might just have you afraid to put your earbuds back on.
Here are 10 of our favorite podcasts to get you into the spooky holiday mood.
