Excellent!

This podcast is everything true crime mixed with pop culture should be! A dark journey of tales of the dead and gone. All the while giving you a taste of the long, strange trip of the Grateful Dead. Very good stuff!

Bad. Just bad.

I love The Dead and I love podcasts, but this is just terrible. Season one was pretty good (Payne’s narration is kinda tough to take, but otherwise…)so I was excited for this.
It’s just so disjointed. The editing is terrible, there is no clear direction to the stories. It’ll just veer off into some weird direction, and at least a dozen times I’ve had to rewind to see what I missed to make the transition make sense, but it just doesn’t make sense.
The attempts to try to weave it all together are incredibly bad. Like the narrator took acid and thought that all these grand notions he’s making were somehow profound and intelligible.
I still don’t know what story they were trying to tell. I pray they don’t make a Season 3, I don’t want to have even the smallest temptation to listen to anything like this ever again.

Worst i’ve listened to in a while

The really is some sensationalism in podcast. Hard reach through out the show bc there’s barely a story here. I can’t help but laugh at how cheesy this is and how it try’s to paint the culture of the grateful dead as dark and shrouded in violence. Don’t waste your time.
