Fantastic podcast

Loving this one!

mattsmith0622 ,

Doesn’t really go anywhere. No real excitement.

I wanted to like this show. I gave it 4 episodes (well, 5 if you count the mini-episode 4.5), but I’ve given up. There’s nothing really exciting about it. A brief encounter with a mutant dog creature in episode 4 where we learn about using our words to solve conflicts (thanks for the pontification, btw), but so far that’s it. Not enough to keep me engaged.

I will say, however, that the sound design and voice acting is quite good.

everjoslightly ,

Beautifully written! The love and care shows!

Each episode is so well-crafted, with such specificity and intentionality towards the characters and the world, particularly in regards to the Welsh-ness of it all. You can tell it was made with a lot of love for the story and the people in it. Looking forward to more seasons!!
