1. Fifty Berkeley Square

The story of Fifty Berkeley Square gave Matt the creeps when he was a kid. Despite losing the book in which he originally found the story, it stuck with him for over 30 years. Join Matt as he recounts the many versions of this oddly familiar tale followed by a brief discussion about what made this story work and endure. 

This episode was written by Matthew Armstrong with music by Matthew Armstrong and production assistance from Kaylia Metcalfe.
