Fantastic

A really great podcast

Fantastic

Everything about this podcast is fantastic, from the writing, the storyline, down to the voice acting. It’s completely enthralling and I think anyone would find it an excellent listen!

eightpercent ,

One of the best

I follow over 80 podcasts on my iPad which I follow whenever I have time. Very few of them I listen to as soon as they drop and this is one of them.
There is nothing about this podcast. The stories are creepy, the story arc is enthralling, Jonathan Sims has one of the best voices in podcasts and it is easy to believe different statements are from different people.
If you are lucky enough to have stumbled across this podcast I am jealous. You have over 90 episodes to enjoy (as of early March 2018) while I have to wait sooo long for those two words that announce another journey into the shadows. “Statement begins...”
