We here at Peripheral decided we could all use a drink. There’s an uncontrolled trash fire sweeping across America, so now’s a good time to duck into a dank bar and hide out.
This week we chat about the the darkest, creepiest, most haunted bars we could find. These stories will contain bludgeonings, stabbings, bodies buried under floorboards, torture and suicides. Don’t worry though. Even with all those horrors, these bars are still safer than what’s going on outside right now.
Join us! Let’s get sauced and scared together.
“What you gonna do when your racism runs wild, BROTHER!?”
Oh boy, that was certainly a holiday, wasn’t it? The whole Peripheral team got SLAMMED by nightmarish Christmas and New Years obligations, but we are back! This week we’re releasing our holiday episode. Did we hold off on releasing it because it is really disturbing and we didn’t want to destroy your holiday with terror? Kind of.
Well, almost certainly.
Out topics are almost exclusively about entire families being murdered. Don’t worry, we handle it with the reverence and class that we here at Peripheral are known for.
This week we go underground to see the terrors mankind inflicts upon itself by digging deep into the earth. It’s mostly tunnels, but there’s also a creepy bug pit.
This episode was recorded pre-election, so our voices still sparkle with hope for the future. Our heart goes out to those of you dealing with difficult shit during a difficult time. We hope you’ll grab a beer and join four dummies yelling creepy stories at each other. We’ll leave an empty chair for you.
It is the BEST time of the year! We here at Peripheral are huge fans of Halloween. We love decorating our houses with spooky stuff, crafting nerdy costumes and doubling down on our scary movie viewings. This week we decided to get a little personal and share what scared us the most as kids. We then justify those youthful terrors with real world horrors. We hope you enjoy it!
Scientists have mapped the human genome, explored the wonders of the universe and developed the perfect chocolate chip cookie. But all those late nights alone in the lab can have strange effects on the mind. Or maybe that’s just the LSD. This week we discuss mind-altering experiments, reanimated farm animals, petri dish musicians and a serious lack of respect for radiation. Mad scientists combine the dangers of the human mind with a total disregard for life, nature and the gods themselves.
Guys, being alive is hard. If you have learned anything from this podcast it is that everything is trying to kill you. We are all doing our best despite that fact, but it is impossible to keep vigilant when you can’t even see all the terrors. The unfortunate folks in the stories we share this week were trying their best. You can’t inspect the earth below your house to see if is has a “devil’s lair” or not, you would never assume that a man can fit his body into a hole in your ceiling that is the size of a cigar box, and if a neighbor offers you a casserole you would never guess that the secret ingredient is long pig. We do our best, but even with the best of intentions you might end up eating dude stew.
We hope you enjoy this episode. It might inspire you to go bunker shopping.
