Annoyed, irked, and disappointed

I found this podcast while browsing on Apple podcast, and the teaser sounded extremely interesting. However, I found to my dismay that only the teaser preview and the first episode are actually available on Apple. Apparently the rest have to be paid for on Spotify, which is fine, but why even put it on apple podcasts in the first place? These are supposed to be free podcasts that everyone can listen to and enjoy without having to pay for 15,000 other streaming subscriptions. Pretty Hurt, annoyed, disappointed, and overall fed up. The other reviews sounded promising as well, so I can only assume that most reviewers actually pay for Spotify. I personally use Apple Music. Guess I need to get used to paint podcast pay for Spotify.

The First Fiction Podcast that mattered

Better than the TV series, so listen to this before watching the show.

Star-studded, and well acted. An intriguing story with a very satisfactory ending (unlike most fiction podcasts). The only reason for 4 stars is that the sound design is a tad underbaked. It has a nice, organic sound to it, but compared to modern fiction podcasts, it feels quickly assembled.

In all, it's very deserving of being made into a series, and it's an important early entry in the first chapter of audio fiction.
