Aili Darrow ,

Fantastic podcast

My friend got me into this podcast today and I am already enveloped in the atmosphere and absolutely consuming the show with vigor. It’s so effectively creepy in the best way, and the little bite-sized episodes make it easy to get lost in the well-written, well-narrates stories. Love it!

Now is the time!

This podcast is grriffic! The delivery of the tales, the connecting lore that isn’t just spoon fed, and jumping on now when there’s so much to binge..! The flaw I find is how short each episode is. Not that the stories need to be longer but that they’re so good I hunger for more by the end of one. I am very happy to have PLENTY of episodes before I actually catch up. I’m not a fan of patreons but I’d buy an audio book compilation if they were available. …they deserve my money tho so I guess I gotta sign up.

This podcast will hurt your feelings

It’s too relatable, the paranatural is a vehicle for a lot of personal cords for a lot of people! Honestly, it’s an enjoyable listen, and I don’t think I’ve ever quite felt something listening to a podcast before.
