cooling1989 ,

It’s like renting a movie that never came out

God what I would have given to see FVJ2... but this gets us close enough.

Best new pod this year so far

Isaac Berz ,

Great content, spooky audio quality.

The content is fantastic, hosts are great, but the audio quality is awful. Host needs a better mic, whoever is engineering in the room needs to check for hot mics and adjust gain accordingly. This podcast is really held back by basic audio mistakes.

Axcalibur ,

Just awful

Listened to the FNAF episode... what a joke. 45 min episode with like, 10 minutes actually talking about the potential movie and the remainder talking about how bad the original developer is because he supports Trump (who gives a damn) and Furries/FNAF porn. If that's the level of quality for the other episodes, i'm not interested. Unfollowed/deleted.
