Dark Jottercast

By L. Bachman
Award-winning author L. Bachman brings to you a dark history and horror podcast known as the Dark Jottercast. Between cups of coffee and manuscripts, she has spent her time exploring what may go bump in the night, but now she uses this exploration to help others learn more about the dark world around us and what monsters may rest just around the corner. With satire and sarcastic humor, maybe, just maybe, you'll walk away learning something new and meet some interesting guests along the way.
