worth the wait

yeah, what people are saying about the first few episodes being tedious is true. but this show takes patience! i stuck with i and i do not regret it. i am invested in the story now. if you really can’t stand it, skip the first episode, or listen on 1.5x speed. but listen to the first few when you have nothing else to do or to get you to sleep and the later episodes are definitely worth the effort! most new shows are slow to start :)

Worth a listen, worth the wait

I am absolutely blown away by this story, it really deserves more recognition. A little slow to start, true, but I can’t even begin to explain how worth it it is to keep listening and give it a chance. It’s so intriguing and wholesome and beautiful with a twang of bittersweet that leaves you feeling as if you’ve really discovered something truly special. Also amazing original music, I loved every song! The highest of praise to everyone involved in creating this podcast, and thank you so much. I really recommend it.

Not slow, subtle. And beautiful. And inspiring.

I went into this cold. All I knew was that it was under the same banner as Welcome to Nightvale. The first episode left me wondering: was this going to be some metaphysical ghost story? Was it going to be cringe comedy about ancient obsessions? Nope, and nope.

The first episodes aren't slow, they're subtle. They're the beginning of a gradually flowering story about memory, music, and identity told with delicacy and nuance. The big and obvious gestures and emotions come from a deeper, more reflective place that becomes clear as the series goes on.

The arc of this story has more than once left me with tears on my face. And more importantly, it's made me think hard about memory, nostalgia, and my own obessions, and how those things define who and what I am.

Inspiring is a word that's too plain, too bald to use here, but it’s the only one that fits.
