FREAKKKKKKY & FABULOUS❗️
I never binge but I did this time- Vanity & Technology collide with self doubt & body image taking us on psychological futuristic journey- I hope there is more to come🤞

Fronzel Neekburm ,

Loved this

I binged the entire thing. I couldn’t turn it off. Listen to it now.

Ukmichael ,

“Got the Time “?

Best piece of advice I can give is make sure you have time to listen to more than 1 Episode.
Once you start listening it it is hard not to fall in to Binge Mode and keep on going .
A great story described as Sci Fi but here in 2020 it is but in 2049 when it was based it could well be a reality !
Enjoy, I Did.
