A beautifully told story

I loved listening to it unfold. I listened to it over the course of a couple days and I think I’ll be coming back to hear it again.

Enchanting

Your new favorite one-season podcast! Strong and kind and surprisingly personal. This show made me smile and be happy in a way that felt meaningful after each episode. Every ghost story is a love story, and this is no exception.

SO GOOD

I listened to the entire series in a day and I loved every second of it. A queer ghost! So creative and dope ahhh!
