Lifts me up, can’t wait for each story

Nothing is treasured as being told a story as I rest my eyes, open my ears. Such variety in styles and word spun into a delightful fulfilling tingling for my brain. Most tales are a gourmet feast ! Keep up the fantastic creative juices flowing, I am hungry for more!

Good stories ruined by ads

I understand that a podcast costs money to produce, so I am totally cool with the “premium content” model, or patreon, or even putting ads at the beginning, or the end, or even between multiple stories. The ads are my least favorite method, but I understand. But… when you start interrupting the freaking middle of the story with ads, you’ve gone way too far. Especially in a mood piece like a horror story, it just completely ruins the tone and the flow. Yuck, yuck, yuck.
