Enjoyable

Good story with a great mix of mythology. The acting was a bit over the top for me, but I couldn’t stop listening. Engaging short story that is worth your time to listen.

Couldn’t stop listening.

Great story, suspenseful, had me guessing throughout. Loved this! Please create more.
I loved this so much that if I had the means to create a movie out of this, I would!

Like NPR with real drama?

What if one of those NPR reporters was allowed to tell a first person narrative with little personal integrity? And also maybe mermaids and kidnappers and murderers were everywhere? A great podcast that both pokes fun and honors the genres of investigative reporting and NPR style personal narratives.
