I LOVE Urban Legends! What a great podcast! The hanging man was awesome! I don’t really like the music in the background, other than that, podcast is great!
No more baby whimper
The repetitive baby whimper is so annoying I can’t even get through full episodes anymore. Please remove it from your lazy sound design.
