An incompetent angel is running a podcast, and you are an unsuspecting prophet. Hosted by Enoch – the Metatron, archangel and voice of God. One of a kind, he is the only mortal to have been employed by God and turned into an angel. Now his main job is to report on important and historical events, broadcasting these to mortal prophets across spacetime. Come along on his journey as he quickly forgets primitive concepts like the linear progression of time, and tries to discover what it means to be a multidimensional entity made of nightmares and forced hope.

Like “Welcome to Nightvale” but with angels

Massacres, flaming swords, sudden club music and booming voices—what’s not to like?

If you like the surreal landscape of “Welcome to Nightvale” you’ll like thousand-eyed, biblically accurate angels with parties to get to, officially sanctioned bloodshed to ignore.

What’s a gem like this doing not getting more reviews? Listen now!

Also to note: female narrator very easy to listen to. Her accent suits the story!

Suggestion: maybe the artwork can be updated? Suggest more biblically accurate angels!

Lack of Biblical Literacy

I want to like this show. I love Biblical satire and twisted Bible stories. For the premise to work, however, you need to be grounded in the Bible. This podcast takes a character’s names and ditches about else from their story. Doing this, all I could concentrate on was how wrong they got their story starting point. I couldn’t enjoy the story.
