Everything you want in a podcast

This high quality ensemble of drama, fact and soundscape is a triumph of media production. The performances are compelling and the story well-paced and original. I was slowly drawn in and felt exactly the melancholy that the piece demands. Perfect use of the podcast genre. What great work.

Love this innovative podcast

I listen to lots of podcasts and this is a favourite. The voices of the characters are perfect for their roles and conjure up a dystopian future that is not too far away. The soundscapes are haunting and the discussion topics are intriguing. A real ‘must listen’. Highly recommend Forest 404 and will be sad when it ends.
