It’s 2024! Happy New Year! 2023 was a fantastic year for us as a show and as people! We’ve gathered here to discuss all of our favorite parts of it! Movies! Music! Games! Podcasts! Everything that we loved from this year. Everything that made our lives better this year. And, of course, we discuss each of our top five Campfire episodes from the year and talk about our experience researching each of them. We had a great time breaking the year down. Enjoy!


Campfire: Tales of the Strange and Unsettling is created for adult audiences only. The content and discussion in this show will necessarily engage with various accounts that include violence, anxiety, fear, and occasional body horror. Much of it will be emotionally and intellectually challenging to engage with. We will flag especially graphic or intense content so as to never put you in an uninformed or unprepared position. We will do our best to make this a space where we can engage bravely, empathetically, and thoughtfully with difficult content every week.
