Seriously, keep listening!

The first two episodes were so painfully boring I thought I’d never get through this series. By the middle of episode 3, I was started to get interested in the mystery and kept thinking “wAit. What just happened?” Over fairly minor stuff. Once your’re into episodes 4 and 5 you HAVE TO finish the story, and it’s not what you think. Knowing this was from Nightvale, I expected something entirely different to happen—the explanation totally caught me off guard but had me hooked and captivated and awed with its surprising turn I never saw coming and it’s poignancy and then another twist I never saw coming. You won’t be sorry—and let me say that some of this is relatable real life stuff and fanciful or supernatural.
This is a worthy listen.!

Keep listening!

I saw a review that mentioned that getting past the first three episodes makes everything worth it, and I cannot stress enough how much that is true. I was unsure as to whether I wanted to continue this podcast, but the slow build has such a satisfying payoff. This is a beautiful story that I am enjoying immeasurably.

It sneaks up on you

“It Makes A Sound” starts off as dry comedy in the tradition of Waiting For Guffman, but as it develops it reveals a rare sweetness and depth of feeling that you don’t quite see coming. It’s a wonderful story about the ways that love for art and artists creates community and heals wounds. Highly recommended!
