I love the weird darkness podcasts!! The stories are so interesting and macabre, they more than satisfy my 45 min walk to work everyday! I don’t know what I would do if I didn’t find this podcast!!! Mr Marlar you have a great voice and I love the way you make each story your own! I’m not religious by any means but I like when you add the bible verses after the stories, sometimes they’re really creepy and a bit of light is always good!! I think it’s great you’re such an advocate for mental health- all the best and keep up the great work!!

Great content, great host. I really enjoy this podcast. A real variety of interesting topics. Stuff you might not be interested in ends up being unmissable listening. Mr. Marler deserves recognition for drawing attention to those suffering from mental/physical addictions/illnesses too. I’m writing this review because he replied to an email I sent when I was in a low ebb. Thank you and please keep up the good work.

Great!

I’ve listened to a fairly wide selection of spooky, paranormal or supernatural podcasts but WeirdDarkness is by far the best. The topics do vary from unsolved crimes, personal accounts of paranormal experiences, ghost stories, demons and murders but always with that trademark Weird vibe. Darren has a great eye for the content he includes and the production values are probably the best of any podcast out there regardless of the content.
He has a great voice, again one of, if not the best I’ve heard on a podcast and it’s perfect for the creepier tales.
The truly unique element is that Darren is a gifted storyteller. It took me a while to realise that each tale wasn’t actually his own experiences being recalled. Regardless of who wrote each piece he has the ability to deliver it with the most perfect conversational, educational and believable delivery. I know he’s not infallible as he often includes a blooper reel at the end with a tricky pronunciation that temporarily got the better of him.
I’ve listened to the entire backlog and I can still listen to a new episode on my hour long cycle to work as he releases one every day. EVERY DAY!!! How many other podcasts of this calibre can say that? None that I know of.
A particular like of mine is that at the end of each show he has a little segment he begins with “and now that we are coming out of the dark..” where he reads a short bible verse. Some listeners have really taken umbridge with this but for me, and considering some of the darker content, I take it as something of a brief cleansing and I appreciate his duty of care on us, as the listeners, when he does it.
The reason I know some listeners don’t like it? He’s not afraid to read out a bad review. That on its own is something that I’ve never heard another broadcaster do and he does it with respect and with fairness.
God bless you Darren. You must be the hardest working podcaster out there.

Wow, pooping my pants😀

I am a true crime enthusiast and came across this podcast last night on the long drive from Oxford to Yorkshire. A little different and I love it. I have an hours drive in front of me this morning and I will be listening to another episode en route! Thankyou! - Ashleigh from Yorkshire

I was recommend this podcast by a work mate a few months ago. Having never really listened to any podcasts before I was a little sceptical, until I pushed the play button and listened to Darren’s amazing voice. I have now listened to every Weird Darkness episode from now all the way back to before Christmas 2017. I especially enjoy the pieces written by Troy Taylor. I love the unsolved murder mysteries and detail and research he puts into his writing, which is brilliantly narrated by Darren to bring them to life.
I also love the way Darren says ‘macabre’.
Amazing stories that will have you looking over your shoulder and giving you goosebumps from start to finish.
Well done Sir, well done.

If you are a horror buff or things alike this is the podcast for you. I listen to this show religiously every week and have listened to them all, some a few times over.
Brilliantly read, conducted, always respectful to the artists, just very well put together. Safe to say I'm a fan for life now.
