    Syntax 12: On the Wrong Track

Saph the Something ,

Such a great sci-fi concept

I'm so glad that Syntax popped up on my radar because it's been such an interesting listen! The mystery of the breach and the world beyond it are communicated so well, and the main POV of a linguist is a really neat take on the mix of sci-fi and borderline fantasy happening within that universe. The characters have great dynamics and every new episode leaves me hungry for the next.

Lions Combo ,

Awesome Cocept

Very interesting story designed to leave you hungry for more. Well designed characters, unique personalities and an array of interactions that blend nicely to draw you in. Each character has their own quips which make them easy to relate to and become invested in. Unnerving story and suspenseful scenes. Definitely a great addition to the horror podcast genre!

Wootsy1 ,

So much potential…

This podcast has an interesting premise and strong storyline. The sound design is also good. Unfortunately I wish the voice actors were better. It’s like they’re reading straight from the script. One of them sounds like an 8th grader on a camping trip…and this is supposed to be specialists on a scientific expedition…!?! Utterly unconvincing.

It really detracts from an otherwise intriguing story which is in fact its strongest element. Every time I’m tempted to walk away from this podcast, it reels me back in…
