I NEED season 3!!!

This was my first serial podcast and “WOW”!!! Talk about mixed blessings lol Awesome first experience and Gd Luck to future similar podcasts living up to the experience of “Blackout!”!!!

Impossible not to binge

Season 1 was gripping…. Story-telling, characters, sound quality, etc… Season 2 started out slow, found the first few episodes a bit cliché…. But really ramped back up around episode 3-4.

Podcasts such as this one and Passenger List are the cream of the crop in terms of engaging adult fiction…. Highest quality!

Perfection

This podcast is (saying is and not was because there had better be a season 3) truly incredible. The show is about us being sent back to pre modern technology and feels almost like a radio play from that era, which really just adds to the depths of the atmosphere and your ability to get lost in it. The voice acting is great. They really make the characters come to life. They do a great job of making you really care about some characters and truly detesting others. It’s sad that most of the 1 star reviews I saw were due to a paywall and had nothing to do with the content. But listening to it in 2022, I didn’t hit any paywalls. I was able to listen to every episode. Here’s to hoping there’s a third season.
