Great All Around Listening

This is a great podcast, and there’s a genius at work within it.

I listen to just about every story generated Sci Fi podcast on the net, and there are many good ones, but this one is consistently great, while others are hit and miss.

Let me repeat...real genius. Not every story is perfect, but the main writer has honed his craft so that it feels like listening to gold.

Within this vast array of stories, just about the entire human experience and alien too, I suppose, is touched upon.

I started here in May, 2018; I listen because the stories make me feel something, they open my mind and excite my Sci Fi cravings.

Although the stories are independent of each other, there is a connecting theme running through a lot of them. Many of the same characters, their world’s and timelines pop up throughout the catalogue.

What more can I say? I love this podcast.
It’s appropriate for most ages;
It’s...
Not too violent or graphically violent
Not weirdly morbid; it doesn’t dump negativity into one’s mind
Not too gross,
Very Interesting, lots of great plots.
Quite often Educational and always thought provoking.
Fun
More fun
And fun again
