The Mother of Sorrows

Would you dare to enter the Mother of Sorrows? Join Nick and Jess in this spine-tingling special Halloween episode of 'That Sounds Terrifying' and prepare to be captivated by a listener’s hair-raising encounter.

In this episode, Nick and Jess welcome TST listener, Bill, to the show as he shares an ordinary childhood experience in a library, but what unfolds when he revisits that place during a summer job will send shivers down your spine. Bill's tale is nothing short of terrifying.

Nick and Jess delve deep into Bill's harrowing account, providing their own insights and reactions to this spine-tingling fan story. And as a special treat, they'll also recount some of their own eerie experiences in libraries.
