I liked it!

Very compelling story! What was the significance of Terra’s rain boots in the last episode? I must have missed something.

Interesting

This story was interesting. I had a hard time following the series, for some reason I couldn't really follow the person. Other than losing my attention from time to time, the story is great and the podcast was good.
