Very enjoyable

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

Tasty•Thalia ,

My favorite Pod Cast

The Other Stories are an exceptionally well written collection of short stories of the macabre,bizarre, sci-if, out of this world fiction.
The narrators are superb, each voice fits every story as it were meant to be told in that fashion.
The Host Luke Condors voice calms me in an eerie manner that soothes the days cares away.I am on my way to listening to every story. Some I must admit I’ve listened to multiple times. They are raw and deep and sometimes mesmerizing. If they are still up and running it would be a dream of mine to narrate a story, or even write a story to be told on the podcast. I’m a writer and aspiring narrator myself. I give T.O.S podcast 10 out of 5 stars. Cheers- Tasty•Thalia•
