Video description: Trailer for “The Lady in My Headphones.” 34 seconds. Title card with the words “Podcast Episode” and “Genre: Mystery” is displayed at top. Story tagline is displayed at bottom.

For the whole night.’ ‘That’s all?’ ‘That is all.’ ‘And what’s really going to happen? Some demon will possess me, right?’” Story title appears at top as the image blurs. Text box appears at center displaying the words, “Listen on Apple Podcasts, Google Podcasts, iHeartRadio, Spotify, Stitcher, and so on. Or listen on my Podcast page at”
