So wonderfully weird

I just recently discovered this show and I’m already a big fan. It’s so fanciful and darkly funny and wonderfully weird. It’s rare that I actually laugh out loud watching or listening to a show and Death by Dying makes me laugh out loud more than once per episode. If you like gallows humor definitely give this show a listen!

Hilarious and so intriguing

This is probably one of my favorite podcast ever. I’ve gotten so invested in the unique characters and the voice acting is incredible. The story is so fun and they explain everything perfectly. I binged this in a weekend and wasn’t even a tiny bit disappointed. It’s the perfect mixture of comedy and spookiness. I also feel like there’s a good message behind some episodes. So excited for more episodes!

My kind of comedy

I love this show! It’s mysteriously strange and sooo hilariously witty. The voices crack me up! I can’t wait for another season!
