Supercut

They have a supercut so watch that instead of each episode. I really wanted to get into this but for some reason I just couldn’t, maybe it’s how the story jumps around back and forth in time and unless you’re keeping track of the episode names you have to guess where the story is at. I listen during work so I can’t check my phone... it was frustrating trying to follow the timeline or maybe I’m just dumb...

Static

I agree with some of the other reviews...the breaks in between scenes have a super loud static. Completely destroys the mood of the scenes.

Static

It could be the greatest podcast in the world and I still couldn’t listen to it because of that jarring static sound they use. The first time I heard it I thought it was just going to be a one time deal but it occurs in every episode I’ve listen to so far. Not to mention it’s twice as loud as any of the dialogue. I literally have to lower my volume every time it happens. It’s a shame because it seems exactly like the type of horror I would like but that static is a dealbreaker. It’s the equivalent of a great video game that has a game breaking bug
