  • From The Flames Pt. 2 29:10

    In preparation for The Town Whispers Season 2, take a moment, and learn the histories of The Fort, that go back further in time than The Fort itself, and further abroad then we've ever gone before.


    From The Flames is brought to you by our Patreon, and it's wonderful members, who continue to lend their support to our small town, and make our it possible to increase the quality of our production. From The Flames was originally produced and released as a Patreon exclusive, but now as we inch closer to Season 2, I think it's imperative that you townsfolk who support us in other ways learn what it is 'From The Flames' has to share.


    From the Flames is an incomplete story, but that's only because the story isn't over yet....


    See you in Season 2 Townies!

    The Fort Presents 'The Long Night' - a stand alone story for the holidays, set in The Fort.


    Everyone knows the rules, they've all heard the childhood rhyme, and even those who scoff in private - obey in private.... except for Gerald Thompson.

The Town Whispers

What stories are hidden, in the rain and the trees and the fog of a quaint little town called Fort.

The Town Whispers is a weekly folk horror anthology podcast. The Town Whispers is a narrative Horror podcast set in a town named forte where eldritch terrors and folk horror meet. Humble, kind, tiny and terrible, Fort sits nestled in the curves and the swirls of fog that climbs through thick woods and jagged, monstrous hills. What stories are hidden there, in the rain and the trees and the fog? Each week, chapter by chapter, something unravels, revealing the sinister workings of a mysterious cohort of entities called the Long Shadows, and their grip over the town. Why are the LaPonte family doomed? What hides behind the walls of the sanatorium? Who (or what) rests in the mausoleum built for those who just don’t die? Listen to every episode to discover the fate of the townsfolk of The Fort, and the terrifying destiny that has been in motion since the first town boundaries were drawn.
