Surreal

For a while now I’ve been searching for something to match the surrealism of the Diary of Totov Roddle, or the adventure of Kino’s journey with that hint of magical realism, without luck until... I discovered this incredible writer. These are fairy tales like you’ve never heard before.

A dark little treasure

I’ve been listening for months now, sporadically saving and binging episodes. The narrative style suits the subject so well and the ambient sounds really set the mood for brilliantly, thought provoking tales. Lovely, bite sized little treats for the ears.

Dark, Little Delights

A really nice podcast. Short, bitesize narratives to play on your mind throughout the day.
Very welcome in my playlist. ^^
