Each has a personal tie to the story. Each thinks they know what happened. And each knows the other is going to screw this whole thing up. Join Bea, Brenda, and the rest of the Good People at Wheyface Radio as they attempt to answer once and for all: what happened to Julie Capsom?

Do not sleep on this podcast!
I don’t even know where to start because everything about this podcast is so great! An incredibly fun story that had me hooked from episode one, a diverse cast of characters, love, drama, comedy, music, murder, disappearances, skunk apes! Really this podcast has it all!!
Such a great find
My favorite romance podcast!
But in all seriousness, this podcast is amazing and one of my favorites. The humor is just right, all the characters are so unique and likeable, superb voice acting, and the plot keeps ya on your toes. Can't wait for Bea and Brenda's marriage!
audio drama, as you like it :)
listen folks. I keep up with somewhere around 50 audio dramas. this show is like no other. the plot is gripping (once you get past the first few episodes as is the case with EVERY PODCAST give them a break folks) and the characters are so lovable and so human.
it’s a story you fall in love with overnight—personally, I fell in love with it at the first episode and immediately forgot about the show I was listening to before. I found it at about the middle of summer last year and the next thing I knew I was binge-listening so fast the memories feel like a dream... I think it was about the 12th night that I finished it though... but I digress!! my point here is:
the hype isn’t just much ado about nothing ;)
((my ocd largely prevented me from reviewing podcasts before now, but I’ll wrap it in gaff tape for a few minutes if it means a dollar goes to helping trans people, especially at a time like this. thank you Emily. you’re the real Good Person™️ here))
