JadeDozle ,

Great story!

Glad it became more clear who what speaking in later seasons. Where is chapter 7 in season 3?! I searched online and everywhere I clicked said it’s not available. It jumps from 6 to 8. 🙁

Lesser Gods

I enjoyed the audio drama, but many times found it hard to follow. Sometimes the voices did not change when they should have.

And THAT was the ending??
SO abrupt and anticlimactic!

Many questions left unanswered. Who exactly is Talc, for example? Why did the 5 have to engage in so much unsuccessful “copping” instead of inseminating the women? Why was Eros so desperate for drugs that he would make some kind of deal with Rebecca?

I think S3.E8 was the end...

I just finished listening. Great podcast, characters and storytelling. I noted several other reviewers wondering when the podcast will be updated and how it will end. I actually think Season 3 Episode 8 was the end...
*SPOILER ALERT*
We see the most balanced, dedicated and respected characters slowly evolving into a presidential candidate. She is doing it for what she believes are all the right and necessary reasons. She believes she won’t make the same mistakes as her predecessors because she loves the final five (six). But what choices will she be forced to make?
We see one of the final five allowing himself to be manipulated by the current president into lying to his most cherished friends, and agreeing to go along with terrible schemes, all in the name of saving the world and someone he loves. Sounds familiar...?
I think the story ended at the new beginning of the next and perhaps last generation of leaders who will be forced to make terrible decisions. They will be forced to choose between saving the human race or their own humanity.
