Unexpected

I don’t listen to fiction podcasts and I am not a Sci-Fi aficionado but being familiar with the creator’s work for over twenty years, I was surprised at some of the familiar elements and turns of phrase, as well as overall theme. Most of all I was shocked when I BURST into tears at the end. Slow to start, I really felt invested by the end. Will there be a season 2? Still have unanswered questions but willing to let them go. It’s a enough closure if that is your worry.

The best podcast I’ve ever heard!

I’ve been diving deep into listening to tonssss of scripted fiction podcasts. Out of the couple dozen+ I’ve listened to the past couple months, this is hands down the best one I’ve ever experienced. 10/10. I can’t imagine anything else could top this. Script, cast/acting, sound design, production & everything else was incredible. And all of the bonus stuff! I might do a second listen!

Fantastic!

I binge listened over a wekend and with no shame, admit I cried in the last episode. I haven't been this enraptured since TANIS and Wolf359. If you love space-themed podcast with a little supernatural and true character development, you will love this.
