Troubled Youth

Troubled Youth

By Kit Hanson
A boy blindly attempts to escape the bottom of the ocean. A girl has a conversation with a ventriloquist's dummy in her bedroom. A family discovers that, sometimes, other drivers aren't the most dangerous thing on the road.

In Troubled Youth, children face their greatest fears, one tale at a time. Written by author Kit Hanson and narrated by musician Leah Cook, each story will pull you into a surreal world that reminds you of the things that used to keep you up at night.

Episodes release every Sunday night at 11:11PM CST!
