What is Small Town Spooky?
Small Town Spooky was born out of a love of scary, spooky stuff. Urban legends, creepy cryptids, and scary hometown stories make up a patchwork of modern folklore.
Small Town Spooky dives into the origins and contexts of these local legends and tries to bring some of the shadowy details to light. Have your own small town scare you want to share? Email email@example.com.

(Starred review) "I loved it! Renee’s approach from multiple angles was interesting from start to finish. Including geography was really helpful as someone who has been to the area and isn’t from Canada. Her commentary was witty and entertaining and her voice was perfect for the mood and tone she presented with the episode! This was a lovely opener. I can’t wait to hear more!"
