Submitted for the approval of the Radnight Society, we call this story: The Tale of "Are You Afraid of the Dark?" Kyle and Matthew were two simple podcast hosts going about their busy Canadian lives when one day they were joined by the eccentric Canadian drifter/mad scientist Adam Murray (accent on the "Mur"), the bad-Canadian-kid-about-to-learn-a-lesson-through-a-visceral-paranormal-shakedown Tom Seiniger, Laura "secretly an alien" Knight and pool monster Producer Natalie to discuss this mainstay SNICK horror staple that scared the pants off everyone as kids. Anyways, they all almost died but broke the curse on the haunted dollhouse/pirate jewel/voodoo paintbrush just in time, and eventually everything went back to normal. Or did it? Mua ha ha ha ha!
