Welcome to Escape and Suspense!, a blog devoted to the enjoyment of the CBS radio show Suspense and its sister show Escape.
Suspense was a thriller that ran on CBS Radio from 1942 to 1962. Between 1947 and 1954, Suspense also had a sister show named Escape, which focused on classic short stories and exotic adventure.
We post only the best episodes from both--and spare you their worst.
