Host + Producer
Writer and designer, editor and inventor, brewer and narrator, Drew’s been called a lot of things in his career – some nicer than others. By day he spins stories with words and pictures as an advertising copywriter and creative director. But by the light of the moon, he can be found weaving tales for sound and screen, and alchemizing bubbly brews with hops and barley.
He lives in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, Canada with his son and a menagerie of small creatures.
Seth started his journey with TtT as a listener when episode numbers were in the double digits and the Nook was a warm, cozy and inviting retreat from a long and mind numbing commute. Hearing a call from Stephen during an episode, he joined the team as a narrator, which in time lead to an invitation to become an associate editor. This was about the same time that another narrator, a very talented and as everyone knows all around good guy Drew also joined in the same role. Drew became the owner and Seth became the editor, then managing editor for the podcast.
Seth has narrated stories for Tales to Terrify, Far Fetched Fables and StarShipSofa. He currently lives on the south coast of Massachusetts with a husband, dog and a cat.

Andrew was pulled feet-first from the swamps of South Louisiana, kicking and screaming. He remains mostly as such to this day.

Krystal Hammond is a narrator/writer, cancer survivor, and nonbinary queer human. They grew up in rural North Carolina, nurtured by a steady diet of local Black Beard legends and Confederate ghost stories. These nuggets of folktale and myth fostered a life-long love of storytelling and all the drama that goes with it. They also have a Master’s degree in biological anthropology and adore ugly cats.
Spencer’s passion for literature and storytelling started at an early age when his dad would read to him classic stories from such authors as: Hugo, Dickens and Wells.His love of sound grew even more when he started to play the guitar. From there, he became an avid audiophile and even pursued an education in audio engineering.As a regular listener of Pseudopod, TtT and the Drabblecast, on a whim, he thought it would be fun to narrate a story and the rest is history.

J. R. Andrews
J.R. Andrews was born in Michigan, but has lived as far afield as Los Angeles, California and Anchorage, Alaska. A lifelong reader, this camera-shy slusher didn’t begin writing till in his early thirties. He has words in The Vanishing Point Magazine, Dark Winter Lit Magazine, and Coffin Bell Journal, to name a few.
A harmless email lured him into the TtT fold, for which he’s immeasurably grateful. He currently lives in North Central Florida with his three-legged familiar: his cat, Lovey. In fact, he’s probably talking about her on Twitter right now, @andrewshorror.
Kathleen Palm haunts her 100 year old farmhouse in rural Indiana. She started writing about eighteen years ago, her words tumbling into the dark and creepy land of horror. Surrounded by her husband, two college kids, four cats and two dogs, she survives in her living room absorbed in anything scary or weird.
Her short stories can be found here and there for those brave enough to look, and her debut upper middle grade horror book Into the Gray (Feb ’23) lurks in the shadows, waiting. For anyone who wants to talk spooky, find her on Twitter @KathleenPalm.
