Loganfool ,

Very enjoyable

I give this an A+ for sound effects. They’re not overpowering but timely and fun. They’re like a comic book.

The Toy Factory….. WOW!

Cryptologik ,

OK, but Overproduced

Decent stories, good length. But key to art is knowing when to put down the brush. Too many sound effects and now they’ve introduced this staticy distortion effect on the narrator’s voice in every show. Tried three of the recent episodes and had to stop each one about 30 seconds in due to the annoying, screechy effect. Not spooky, just aggravating.

MissD2U ,

Love love love your podcast

I grew up when talk radio was an actual thing. It was its fledgling days but my grandmother loved it and I also grew to love it.

The addition to of the supernatural/paranormal/ sci-fi is a more perfect marriage than mine ever was!

I ma just take a stab at writing none of these days. Until then keep ‘em coming.
