Hello my little jalapenos so wonderful tasting it brings a tear of nostalgia to one’s eye. Reading is wonderful thing, as we all know, but sometimes it’s nice to regress to childhood.

Here are a few channels where you not only get to listen with your ears, but your face. Is that a correct sentence? I don’t know.
The Moth is always a wonderful channel to watch, and you can listen to people’s true stories on the website too.

If poetry is your cup of tea here is the Button Poetry channel. Alex Dang in the video below reads “What Kind Of Asian Are You?”
A lot of horror fiction channels, rather than featuring the reader, have ambient images like a fireplace or spooky scene. There’s Chilling Tales For Dark Nights, also Troubled Dreams and Mr Creepypasta. Honestly, there’s loads, just do a search.

This lady, Sauda Namir, reads bizarro erotica in a sexy manner. Just be warned that bizarro is a genre that is often disturbing, strange and explicit. Here she reads an extract from Gabino Iglesias‘ Gutmouth.
