Bravo!

Finally a podcast that isn’t cowtowing to Realm. An independent podcast, let’s help these folks stay independent. BRAVO BRAVO, finally a well done, fantastically superbly written podcast, well done an excellent well written and great voice acting, you’ve outdone yourselfs! Well worth the kickstarter investment, to 1. Keep them independent, and 2. Out of the reach of Realm. I’ve lost $$$$ supporting loser podcasts that have promised podcasts, and disappeared, but definitely feel differently about this winner!!!!!!! 🤣

Great Show

First of all, that theme song is 🔥I love the script and sound design. What a vivid episode! I am not surprised any work of Tonia Ransom and Jen Zink is always top-notch. Also, the detail at the end of the episode about your Aunt was super sweet. I can't wait for more episodes!
