Lifeafter

First season is boring but 2nd is great

Loved it! Would love additional seasons!

This was fantastic and I was completely drawn in! I have been struggling to find another podcast similar to this, but nothing comes close! Fingers crossed we get more seasons or spin offs!

Incredible!

Both seasons were amazing! Brilliant plot and each episode keeps you on the edge of your seat. Not sure what the people giving it a mediocre rating we’re listening too. Binge worthy
