Quirky and mystical

Words fail me when it comes to describing this podcast. It’s a story in the most immersive fashion. You may actually believe that the show is being broadcast from the top of the Eiffel Tower, and it may be. Give a creative team the medium to tell their story and this is what you get. I anticipate any new season in the works as I listened through a whole season in one sitting.

so enchanting!

I loved this so much! This podcast is unlike anything else. It's storytelling and music. It's funny and sad and real and fantastical! It very very gently takes you for a trip. I'm so excited about the next season!
