Amazing podcast

I’m an avid listener to audio dramas but rarely write a review. I had to for this - it was just amazing. The sound quality was incredible and the voice actors were great. The story is very interesting and definitely stems from anthropological passions. I just wish there was more in the first season! Can’t wait for season 2 to come out.

Great show

The best world building and story telling. Especially appreciate the tight release schedule

Velvetred(HELP) paws ,

Wolves annoyed me

SPOILERS AHEAD!!!!
Okay when I first saw the podcast I was so intrigued, I love listening to dystopian type things, I was sadly mistaken, let me start with the wolves, they are primal and over aggressive and at each others throats 25/8, I thought that they would balance it out with some form of tender moments between the tribe to show ‘pack love’ or some form of bond other than blood, again mistaken I don’t even want to talk about the groaning and grunting, it’s sloppy and aggro, and to hear it every 4 seconds it’s a thorn in my side, Main lead is strong trying to prove her self to her mom who is the Queen (?) Matriarch and her brother who is a teacher to the pups, not to mention he’s blind,
The Rams
Barlon was okay, very forgettable to be honest he is a Ram who can’t use his hands (?) hooves I don’t know, but he has a brace, his dad who is head leader in the Rams tribe tells his son that he can’t compete in the trials or whatever they are called because he can’t use his hands and rams are good with their hands, so without them they are nothing useful- as I said forgettable
the Bears
Timo was just confusing all around had no idea weather he was a teen or an adult, bears are good at magic or something (very forgettable)
timo is looking for something to help his tribe with the raids
( side bar did I mention that they are bringing money into trade- well the Rams are, Silver they are trading silver now and the wolves hate that so they kill)
Finally we have Halcyon
Did I mention everyone hate the bird tribe because they fly? And can see in the air, well yeah they do SO FUN! Hal is the lowest ranking bird in her tribe the nameless, or her friend cricket, it’s really not worth listening too in all honesty
Also bad Imagery, why do the Bird tribe are all described to have wings but the other tubes seem to be normal, I imagine the rams having huge horns and Centaur bodies, and the wolves to have rectangular snouts and tails and claws, but they were riding horse on their raid??????
This show is the definition of “I can’t give it a 0 so I’ll give it a 1”
