Undercooked Analysis - "What They're Not Telling You about YouTube"

The space travelers from Raygun Readers and galactic hitchhiker Rachel Hanson have come to David and Kaela to share this conspiracy theory pasta. Does it truly outline the dark and nefarious background agenda of the Google-owned video giant, or is it baseless nonsense?

Undercooked Analysis - "Bishop Selby"

Now it's Dead Palette's turn to be absent as David, Kaela, Allen and Mike MacDee dig into one of his own stories. It's a surreal trip to a college campus where the laws of space and time are off-kilter, but will it ascribe to the writing method Dead Palette so strongly advocates?

Bishop Selby was written by Dead Palette. Read along here.

Undercooked Analysis - "My Last Camping Trip"

Have a nice trip, see you next fall! David, Dead Palette and Allen are joined by author Mike MacDee to take yet another trip into the woods, following a story of four rather accident-prone kids. Is there a sinister presence skulking amid the trees?

"My Last Camping Trip" is written by Dustin Koski. Read along here.

Undercooked Analysis LIVE - "Shadow Link in Soul Calibur II"

The gang meets up in Dead Palette's neck of the woods to host a panel at Ohayocon 2017. David, DP, Kaela, SoberDwarf and newcomer Chelsea Comer all sit in for a live performance of a Creepypasta classic and then a blind read of a story chosen by the groans of the audience at the mention of its title...

Undercooked Analysis - "Rabbits in the Creek"

No animals were harmed in the making of this episode, because David, Allen and Dead Palette (especially Dead Palette) all love rabbits. But does the story? The gang reads an account of a small Idaho town and a boy's inventive means of drawing local wildlife in for a picture.

Undercooked Analysis - "Arizona"

David, Dead Palette, Allen and Kaela take a trip to the deserts of Arizona, where bizarre things happen to a couple driving to visit friends. In typical UCA fashion though, this story quickly takes a turn for the worse, and the gang gets a little distracted talking about a new friend...

Undercooked Analysis - SantaPasta Challenge

Christmas Eve is usually reserved for waiting for a fat man with presents to arrive, but this year David, Dead Palette and especially Allen have been given the gift of scary Santa stories by a multitude of podcast listeners. With four stories picked from the impressive stack of written works, which will come out on top?

Undercooked Analysis - Short and Shivery 8

David and Kaela are joined by Abysmii and Papreeka of the Raygun Readers Podcast to boldly go where they've only kind of been before: sci-fi Creepypastas. What do these two stories illustrate about the crossover between horror and science? And will either of them be any good?

Undercooked Analysis - Seaside British Pub Stories

David and Kaela sit down for an imaginary drink and a real chat with friends from the Witching Hour Podcast, Seid and Raevell. Their topic: a set of related accounts from a waitress at a seaside British pub where all of the patrons have something odd about them. Will the story convince the gang to stay for another round, or will it make them call it a night early?

"There are few things as depressing and shitty as working in a seaside British pub" is a NoSleep story credited to Cymoril_Melnibone.

Undercooked Analysis - Anansi's Goatman Story

It probably wasn't the best idea for David, Dead Palette and Allen to start reading this particular story so late at night, and not for the reason you might think. Will this 4chan account of a surreal camping trip (near Huntsville) be a worthwhile endeavor, or will the guys find their sleep-deprived efforts in vain?
