good content but pretentious character lead

The idea and concept was fantastic for podcast but the character Ellie is extremely unlikable. The focus of the plot is her reflecting on her life through old audio/video recordings. She realizes some of her flaws from reflecting but no real character development. I can point out though that the audio production is great and the podcast itself if just good enough where you don’t hate Ellie so in the case of extreme boredom, it’s worth a listen.

Entertaining, but premise is flawed.

Morales is great actress, the performance was excellent. The writting was good. The premise... not so much.
A virus wiping all digital data? Easy solution. Disconnect from the internet. Obviously the producers didn't consult a internet information security professional. that's the only flaw I could find.

Brilliant Satire!!

This is spot-on, and an on-point creative reflection of the life and times of this current generation! I'm loving every aspect of this podcast!! Hilarious. 😭👺
