Overdue review 😅

So the first episode I ever listened to was interruptible which is so amazing and ever since I was hooked, I keep up with new episodes and listened my way back to Moon Graffiti. The production to this podcast just blew me away and helped me discover other brilliant podcast.

Here are few of my favorite episodes that I can remember which I listen to play every now and then:

Miracle on L Train, Murder at Cakery Bakery, The Hum Series, Eat Cake, Unremarkables, Meet Cute, Dark End at the mall, Enjoy the suffering, Body genius series, Mirror lake, It’s your funeral, Interruptible, Visible, the one where the dentist stole a girl’s smile so can no longer smile and other episodes I have to look up because I couldnt remember the titles 😅.

I recommend 💯.

Brilliant stuff

So I cried after Visible, so I guess I'm morally obligated to tell everyone how brilliant these stories are. Good job, guys, and thank you!

My Favorite!!

I'm so glad I wasn't premium on Spotify because I wouldn't ever have heard your ad and I wouldn't have found my favorite podcast. This is probably the only one I look forward to hearing more from. More power! -Gemy
