062 - Backrooms

Imagine you are hanging out in a familiar spot. Mall, arcade, or even just a friends house. Maybe you are at some location for work, or even your own home. You are lazily leaning against a wall, when suddenly…You clip out of existence. Yo are transported to an area that looks like just a forgotten add on to a room. Old non-finished carpet, old dried wall paper, and just a feeling of being some place forgotten. Some place forbidden. You call out for help, but only a hear growl back. You hear that growl coming closer…You try to run but only find yourself running through an area that look very similar to the last. This is loop. You are in a plane of existence…the Back Room. The back room creepy pasta structure is common story telling trope online which someone falls through a wall, clipping themselves out of reality and end up in these backrooms. Once there, writers create a universe using this area. Some stories leave their characters a lone, some are pitted against some sort of monster type creature. Either way, this place is not one you would like to come into. Bob reads two stories about the backrooms from aspiring paranormal writers, and shares his thoughts on how this sort relates to the SCP Foundation’s Never Ending Ikea. Bob also has three news stories this week. The first one is about a young poet in Scotland, Len Pennie, whom is raising a campaign to help remember folks who were executed during the Scotland Witch Trials. The second story gives us an idea of what and how the dinosaurs came to being extinct. Finally, Bob and the Count look at a mysterious hole that opened up on Mars.
