  • Feed Drop – Amazon SUSPECT: VANISHED in The Snow 6:18

    Thank you to Amazon Music for supporting Rusty Quill and The Magnus Archives 2.


    Content Notes:

    • True crime elements
    • Child death/injury
    • Harsh language
    • Mentions of: human remains


    For more than three and a half decades, the disappearance of 12-year-old Jonelle Matthews was a mystery – a riddle neither authorities nor her family members could solve. The residents of her cloistered Colorado hometown had scoured every inch of prairie. Jonelle’s face had been on milk cartons nationwide. Even the President of the United States had appealed to the public for help. Still, every lead had fizzled. Every person of interest had turned out to be a dead end. 


    Then, in 2019, Jonelle’s remains were unearthed near the foothills of the Rocky Mountains. With the discovery came a troubling new question: Had the truth been hiding in plain sight the entire time? Was the man who couldn’t stop obsessing over Jonelle’s disappearance also the person who took her? From Campside Media and Wondery comes season two of SUSPECT. Former CNN reporter Ashley Fantz and executive producers Matthew Shaer and Eric Benson (Suspect, Over My Dead Body) dig into one of the most mind-bending cold cases in modern history, in an attempt to separate fact and fiction, compulsion from guilt, and true-crime fandom from a motive for murder.

  • NINE II MIDNIGHT – The Horrors of Our Dreams 1:02:34

    It seems like the horrors of our dreams are most frightening to you... 


    On the Eve of Halloween, a dozen storytellers sneak inside the abandoned Darklight Carnival grounds to share a chilling batch of stories in two varieties. This year they split up to uncover the fears that lurk within and horrors that walk among us.


    One group will head to the Ferris Wheel to tell tales of real-world terror. The other will venture into the Funhouse to spin yarns of the frightening spirit world. Which path will you embark on first?


    Nine II Midnight is a collaborative storytelling event between 12 podcasts:

  • Announcement: Seasons Greetings 2020 1:47

    Hi everyone, Alex here, I just wanted to take a moment to wish you all a happy and safe holiday season and give thanks to all of you who helped us get to where we are this year.  


    Obviously 2020 has been wild ride for everyone and we have all had to adapt and adopt new ways of working and living. Yet despite all these extreme circumstances Rusty Quill has managed to stand tall and we wanted to say thank you to everyone who has made this possible.


    Here at Rusty Towers, we started the year hoping for convention appearances and maybe some international travel; instead, we pivoted to fully remote working to keep all your favourite shows ticking along safely and launched new online content like the Enthusigasm podcast and our Twitch live streams. Not only that, we have continued donating towards the Covid Relief Fund every month and with your additional help through Gaming and Giving we have raised more than £55,000 pounds to charity this year. That is astounding.


    We are incredibly grateful to have such a skilled and dedicated team working with us and persevering through this year. But we never would have been able to make it anywhere near this far without the direct support of you, the listeners. 


    You’ve trusted us through thick and thin and thanks to you, we’ve managed to not only weather this year but even keep growing and start spinning up a load of new and exciting projects that you can look forward to in 2021. Your support has sustained the livelihoods of everyone here at Rusty Towers despite so much hardship and I know I speak for everyone here when I say that we will never forget your generosity and will continue to work to uphold the faith you show in us.


    As always, we have special holiday content running throughout the festive period to help put a spring in your step and even have a complete music album for Stellar Firma fans being released to public from the 25th of December through to the New Year’s Eve.


    We hope you and all your loved ones are happy and healthy this holiday. You are all amazing, truly amazing, and you all deserve the best new year possible.  


    Thank you so much, and happy holidays.

  • Announcement: Rusty Quill Gaming and Giving 2020 1:04

    Hey everyone!

    Mike here, Rusty Quill’s video guy and I’m pleased to announce that Rusty Quill’s Gaming and Giving will be back this year and we’re going digital!

    Come join in as we go live at 11am GMT on the 12th December on Twitch.tv with 24 hours of videogames, board games and general fun and frolics. Yes, that’s right, I said 24 hours.

    We’ve made a few changes to the show this year, one of which is that we’ll be raising money for three charities: Mind, Action Aid and the Black, African and Asian Therapy Network and anything we raise this year will be split evenly across all three of them.

    Last year, we managed to raise just over £10,000 in 12 hours and I’m confident that, with your support, we’ll raise even more this year! Plus, let’s just say there may be some... creative incentives for our viewers who donate.

    So tune in to www.twitch.tv/rusty_quill on Saturday 12th December at 11am GMT to help us kick off Gaming and Giving 2020 and let’s send this year off with a bang!


    This year, Rusty Quill Gaming and Giving 2020 will be raising money to support:

    Mind - https://www.mind.org.uk/

    Action Aid - https://actionaid.org/

    BAATN (Black, African and Asian Therapy Network) - https://www.baatn.org.uk/

  • Delay to MAG 185 39

    This is a message from Alexander J Newall about the delay to today's episode of The Magnus Archives.


    "Hi everyone, Alex here.


    Due to the recent police killing of Walter Wallace Jr., we have decided to delay public release of the Magnus Archives episode that was scheduled for today.


    This is because - whilst it is not directly about race, racial violence, or death - it does deal with the police, wrongful imprisonment, and abuses of power which may hit particularly close to home this week. The audio version will be coming out next week at the usual time as part of a double bill with episode 186 on Thursday 5th November.


    However, the transcript of today's episode is available below if you wish to familiarise yourself with the narrative events before next week. Content warnings are included at the start of the document.


    Thank you for your patience."

The Magnus Archives

Make your statement, face your fear.

We are excited to say that our Kickstarter crowdfunding The Magnus Protocol has launched! Visit our Kickstarter campaign to check out our goals and pledges.


The Magnus Archives is a weekly horror fiction anthology podcast examining what lurks in the archives of the Magnus Institute, an organisation dedicated to researching the esoteric and the weird. Join new head archivist Jonathan Sims as he attempts to bring a seemingly neglected collection of supernatural statements up to date, converting them to audio and supplementing them with follow-up work from his small but dedicated team.

Individually, they are unsettling. Together they begin to form a picture that is truly horrifying because as they look into the depths of the archives, something starts to look back…
