I love this

I love the stories and the sound quality and production is amazing! I haven’t heard anything like it

TroySterling ,

Well worth a listen.

I highly recommend listening to Cold Open Stories productions. The production value is excellent. These are audio dramas with well-cast roles. You may not have heard of the authors or voice talent here but they are excellent at their craft. Give it a listen. You will not be disappointed. Warning: Grimdark content!
