Matt Wesolowski returns with podcast host Scott King for a new season of Six Stories. This time King is grappling with a brutal family slaying. Teenager Arla Macleod bludgeoned her mother, sister and stepfather to death with a claw hammer. But why? She is locked up in a secure psychiatric unit and there is a whiff of the paranormal as she tells King tales of black-eyed children. The confines of the podcast give Wesolowski a limited canvas. Yet, within this artistic frame, he weaves an irresistible and tense psychological thriller that is as chilling as it is compelling and original. Read our full review here.
