Refreshing and Remeniscent

What a great podcast! Very reminiscent of old school radio stories with great modern sound and the ability to draw you in and make you not want to stop listening. I'm super happy that I stumbled upon it. Keep up the great work guys!

Reminds me of when I was a kid...

...and my parents would get cassette tapes and we’d listen to audio dramas on long trips. But ya know, this show is for adults :) enjoyed the heck out of the ones I’ve listened to so far, and looking forward to more.
