13 Midnights

Kansas City film producer Steve Searcy channels Alfred Hitchcock and Rod Serling as the narrator of "13 Midnights."

All the spooky tales in "13 Midnights" are based on conversations the filmmaker had with the people who experienced them.

Stories include a young mother haunted by a monster under her bed and a child conned by a sinister imaginary friend. At a time when many seasonal rites of passage have been canceled, Scearcy likes to think he's "saving Halloween."

Whether it’s something happening right now or something that happened 100 years ago, some stories don’t fit in the short few minutes of a newscast. As a podcast producer at KCUR, I help investigate questions and local curiosities in a way that brings listeners along for adventures with plot twists and thought-provoking ideas.
