Great but a little confused

The voice acting and characters in this show are great. It’s funny and original and very cute. But the ending doesn’t feel like an ending I wish there was more. I miss the answers

This show has “good bones”

I have listened to the first 4 episodes in a row. I see many strengths in the writing, the acting, and the Foley effects. The story is intriguing, yes a n oft told tale of a night shift groundskeeper starting work at a very haunted house. Well defined characters, some good humor. I know this is only going to improve.
Drawbacks include rather muddled editing, very confusing threading together of sound effects, at times it is completely unclear what is going on. The accents of the characters are a tad inconsistent as well.
That being said over all the show has plenty of potential. Looking forward to hearing more.

Is it ever coming back?

I love this podcast! It's super funny and the guy who plays the protagonist is really entertaining. Really hoping for at least a few more episodes. But it's been close to a year since the last episode was released and haven't heard a peep either way. I mean, when you write an interesting script, get talented people to act it out and produce it well, it's eventually gonna find its audience. It just seems inconsiderate to create a quality show, hook and reel in listeners and get them all emotionally invested in the fate of the characters, then leave us all hanging with no final resolution or payoff. Bah!!!
