This week, we are officially beginning Spooky Season! From now, until the end of October, we will be continuing our experiment with ChatGPT’s ability to compose short horror stories. This month, the stories will have a distinctly spooky theme. Our first story follows a trio of young teens as they explore the deeply disturbing depths of a haunted carnival. Our second story documents the experiences of a group of young adults who choose to enjoy Halloween by partaking in a new and terrifying game. Will they survive the macabre machinations that are drawn in by their playtime? There’s only one way to find out! Enjoy!   

These stories are works of fiction. Any names or characters, businesses or places, events or incidents, are fictitious. Any resemblance to actual persons, living or dead, or actual events is purely coincidental.

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.
