Mehitchcock ,

Ambitious engaging

The writing, the acting, the sound design, it was all very good. But every so often there would be difficult to follow leaps in the narrative that made me feel like I missed something and a few voice actors sounded similar enough that I would get confused from time to time.

This was definitely good enough for me to want a season two, but I hope that because it’s an audio drama, they spend more time establishing characters first and talk us through any big changes, making sure any action is in the sound or dialogue

I thought they did a great job balancing the human story of the town with their mythos. They were establishing of this book that will no doubt appearing further seasons.

Afflicted

Good podcast, is there gonna be more to it? I think it needs more demonic to it. And less zombie. There are is so many zombie podcasts, and shows already. But anyways, I give it four stars.

Really enjoyed it!

I really enjoyed it! Creative and unique storyline as characters. Kept me o my the edge of my seat and looking forward to the next episode. Looking forward to season 2. I also enjoyed the creepy facts shared at the end of
each episode. Though provoking and interesting. Great idea to include!
