Crazy toothy vagina ,

I re listen episodes

I save almost each and every one, and the way the weave the story, at the same time remaining authentic is fantastic. One of my fav episodes is End of Empathy. Thanks so much for all the work.

My mind is blown away

I prepare myself every time I listen to Invisibilia to have my mind blown away! I don’t know how you find your stories, and I don’t want you to stop doing it.

Amazing storytelling

Just listened to the episode “The Personality Myth“ and it was so impeccably well done. I got captured by the story and I had many profound insights. Thank you :)
