Truly beautiful

This podcast is a true gem, and has such a simple beauty to it it should not be ignored. Best listened to late at night, the idea of it boring broadcasted straight to my phone/radio helped me become enchanted in its world.

I listened to this for the first time back in summer 2017 as somthing to help me fall asleep as I worked in a tower block over London, and instead I found myself staying up and transported to Paris. The voice acting is great, the stories are captivating and whilst at times I may of found myself a little lost with what was going on, the narrator always helped get me back up to speed. Wonderful to listen, just as much to relisten, I look forward to series two when it comes x

Confused

Disappointed after it was recommended so highly. If I have no idea what is going on in the first five minutes then this is a podcast that is asking too much
