I listen to Tales to Terrify also! Have you tried No Sleep, and Chilling Tales? You might also like The Lift, it's more fantasy than horror. It takes place in modern day but the main character, Victoria, is a little girl from the Victorian era who lives in an old building at takes random people on rides in her elevator which take them on some sort of journey to teach them something. Sometimes it's a darker lesson sometimes it's more positive, depending on the person and what they need to learn.

Wittertainment. It's a weekly film review podcast, but mostly I listen for the banter between the two hosts.
Welcome to Night Vale (and other podcasts produced by "Night Vale Presents.")

Spam Spam Spam Humbug. It's a gaming podcast produced by the Ultima Dragons. They usually talk about a specific topic, but often the conversation goes way off topic. (I've actually gotten to sit in on two episodes of this one.)

The Alexandria Archives. Horror themed, kind of like Night Vale in that it's in the format of a "radio show," but on the college ratio station of the fictional "Alexandria University" (Iä! Iä Wendigos!) The show's still finding its footing, and there are some severe tonal shifts sometimes between comedy and outright horror, but I like it so far. (Disclaimer, I know the dude in real life who writes it.)

- Not really a podcast, but I listen to episodes of "Far Lands or Bust" while working. (Even though it's technically a Minecraft "Let's Play" series, it's just walking, always westward, and the real focus is on the various topics Kurt talks about - the audio is the focus, not the video, so it works well as a podcast.)

I listen to a bunch of NPR podcasts. Planet Money, Fresh Air, Hidden Brain, Invisibilia, Radio Ambulante, This American Life, Code Switch, NPR Politics, Serial
The Daily
FiveThirtyEight
Latino USA
Reveal
Love + Radio
The Heart
The Allusionist
The Memory Palace
Radiolab
Comic Geek Speak
The Mortified Podcast
Crime Town
Tom vs. Comics vs. Hate
Why Are People Into That?!

And because I listen to way too many things, I lost track of Welcome to Nightvale but would love to try and catch up someday.

I'm the type who, when they discover a new podcast, goes back and downloads all the episodes they've missed and am therefore tragically backlogged. And now I'm going to have to go through this and try a bunch of new ones. Thank you!

Lately I've been listening to the Car Talks that are up as Podcasts. Fun stuff :)
I wish Car Talk was still on the air, new ones I mean.

I generally don't, but when I used to, I really liked:

The Joe Rogan Experience
Jay and Silent Bob Get Old
Plus One

The last two are both Kevin Smith podcasts. I went through all of Plus One and am really disappointed that they haven't made any more. It was really fun to listen to them talk about their lives. Kevin Smith manages to be one of the few celebrities I listen to and think, "Huh, this guy seems like he'd be a good friend."

I'm not the OP but I'd be interested in either or both.

Chilling Tales
Jim Harold's Campfire

Sleep With Silk ASMR Triggers
This Week in Tech
Security Now
I like true crime podcasts but I get annoyed with the hosts and usually don't stick them out through the whole series. Too many just use so much filler. Most recently I was listening to Up and Vanished, but after he spent two episodes dedicated to a guy trolling him on the net, I gave up on it. I mean wtf. You're obviously out of material, mate.
The only one I listen to somewhat regularly is the Dave Ramsey show. I'm going to check out some of the ones in the comments so I'm glad you asked this question!!
