Dark Venture was a horror/mystery show that aired from 1945 to 1947, and had John Lake as the narrator. It was a different kind of thriller where the listeners were able to go into the twisted mind of the killer and learn about his plans and thoughts. Although the methods through which the killers murder their targets weren’t exactly creative, the listeners still find the show particularly interesting because of the way the killing is plotted and how the killer can always get away with it.Even though John Lake was the narrator all throughout the series’ run, most of the narrating part was actually provided by the killer himself.
