The brain-child of McQuaid (I Sell The Dead, V/H/S) and Fessenden (Depraved, Habit, Until Dawn), the podcast has received rave reviews and five-star ratings across the board on platforms from iTunes to Spotify, startling listeners with its remarkable variety of stories, its caliber of talent, and immersive production value.

Just in time for your Valentine’s Day weekend, Tales presents a twisted love story with McQuaid’s Die Sleeping My Sweet, which he describes as, “bringing together my love of soap opera melodrama, bear porn, and medical thrillers.” The piece is the third in a loose trilogy within Tales that includes The Crush (Episode #3) and The Ripple at Cedar Lake (Episode #7), and continues McQuaid’s exploration of bold queer characters caught up in peculiar situations.

“The format of the audio drama has allowed me to explore characters, stories, and tone in a way that I wouldn’t have otherwise,” McQuaid said. “The further I delve beyond the Pale, the more confident I am in leaning into the exploration and experimentation of auditory possibilities.”

Of Who Killed Johnny Bernard?, which premieres February 20th, Fessenden says, “It speaks to the broad opportunity offered by the Tales platform that I was able to process my grief at the loss of a friend by delving into a sweeping Tale that brought together so many of my themes of fate and belief and sudden violence and love, all in an ambitiously structured nifty half hour entertainment. We are so grateful to have an audience for our stories.”

Both Die Sleeping my Sweet and Who Killed Johnny Bernard? were performed at New York City’s Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts in front of a live audience.

Following these two world premieres, Tales will continue to offer up a different story each week, mixing premieres and new content with stories plucked from archives comprised of 40+ half hour recordings from a diverse swath of genre writers. Already presented on the podcast and available for your enjoyment are works from directors such as Graham Reznick (Dead Wax, I Can See You, Until Dawn), Stuart Gordon (Re-Anaimtor, From Beyond), Eric Red (The Hitcher, 100 Feet) , Paul Solet (Grace, Bullet Head), Jeff Buhler (Pet Sematary, Jacob’s Ladder), Ashley Thorpe (The Hairy Hands, Borley Rectory), April Snellings (Ghoulish: The Art of Gary Pullin) and of course Fessenden and McQuaid.

Coming up are stories by Clay McLeod Chapman, Sarah Langan, Joe Maggio, Kim Newman, JT Petty, Simon Barrett, and a host of others, featuring the voice talents of Vincent D’Onofrio, Ron Perlman, Doug Jones, Amy Seimitz, Tony Todd, Kate Flannery, Leon Vitale, Lance Reddick, A.J. Bowen, Pat Healey, Joshua Leonard, Martin Starr, Ana Asensio, Cooper Roth, Samuel Zimmerman, Jeremy Gardner, Roxanne Benjamin, Larry Fessenden, and many, many others.
