    Transfer student Ava Richards begins her first week at the prestigious Bishop Gray Academy and she has her eyes set on The List. An edgy roommate, a chaotic work-study buddy, an it-girl frenemy, and a brush with a cute boy on campus would be a lot even without falling in with a secret society, don’t you think?

Great story!

I love the story of this podcast but all the music between scenes is unnecessary. I get why they do that on tv shows but on a podcast doesn’t really add anything just makes more things I have to skip.

So good BUT

It’s so good, the sound design the acting and voices was totally just amazing. The only issue I had was there were several times I didn’t understand the storyline, it just feels like we missed so many things.
A few times I went back to the previous episode thinking I obviously somehow missed a scene. Relationships were on a good trajectory then all of a sudden the relationship ended. The only one explained in a normal sequence was maybe Caden and Charlotte. Other situations in storyline was like that as well. As the listener, throughout the story you just keep feeling like you missed a part. Everything else is so good that it kept me listening all the way but it was frustrating how disjointed it makes you feel after a scene ended. I found myself thinking “wait what?” And “huh?” “How did we get to this conclusion already?” Constantly trying to go back to see if I missed something to get to where I was in the story was driving me a little crazy. The production being absolutely superb kept me, the storyline drove me crazy. 😝
