High Quality

Great stories. Great acting. Great sound. Great production.

Interesting stories bad triggers

I do like this show but I have a hard time listening because the lack of triggers for episodes. Sometimes there’s a warning at the beginning sometimes there’s not. I looked on their website to see if there’s a list anywhere of triggers for the episodes and I couldn’t find it.

Again I do enjoy the stories and all the different natures of the episodes but some of the darker ones need more warning labels because it’s hard for me to listen without causing me anxious/depressive episodes. It’s a grab bag of genres and stories which is interesting but can be upsetting if you’re not prepared for something.

The best

Of all the radio drama style podcasts I have listened to (and even actual old radio shows) this is the best by far. Great stories. Great production. Love it!
