Kept my attention

I really liked this podcast! It was interesting enough to keep my attention and I think it is preformed very well. My only complaint is that there is nowhere near enough of it. I hope they come out with more episodes!

5 Stars!

Good show! I enjoyed listening to it on my way to El Paso. I’m a truck driver and can relate to the main character and what she had to deal with…there are a lot of rude, ignorant jerks in the world and people do not care if you make it home or not. You need thick skin if your going to last in this industry and only we can look out for ourselves because no one else will… Also there are things you can control and things you can’t. The key is to focus on what you can and not worry about the rest. Just keep moving and may God be with you.

So good!

When I tried to explain this to my husband, I told him it managed to be sci-fi that dealt with racism, climate change and class. I listened to it on a road trip, driving a moving truck and it was a lot of fun to hear a bit of trucker life while on the road with a whole lot of them. The sound style was more “show, not tell,” which I find pretty interesting. This meant not a whole lot of extra dialogue explaining what sounds were supposed to be (which I often find irritating), but I did catch myself wondering what was going on sometimes. Did not take away from the story at all, instead added depth and made it more immersive. Loved the characters!!! I enjoyed hearing another working mom find ways to connect with their family while far away. Such sweet moments there. Yes, I would absolutely love a second season but this felt to me more like a short story that ended perfectly - some closure but lots of ambiguity that leaves you thinking.
