A Horror Borealis

EPISODE 29: Hide & Seek pt. 6

The night is more than halfway through, but certain revelations are just beginning. A friendly game of cards turns into an exchange of personal admissions, and in the dead of night, Martha tells a story that has haunted her nightmares for 17 years.

What secrets our friends might be keeping from each other are nothing compared to the secrets they’re keeping from themselves. How many of them will come to light before the night is through? Where is the Hidebehind in all of this? Are microwaves real? Are you registered to vote? All these questions and more, revealed.
