Odd and lovely tales from a motel in Jersey running the literary gamut, from sci-fi and horror, from comedy to romance, and everything in between. Based on the recovered writings of Oscar Garrett, a teenager who lived at the Motel Americana in the 1980’s, it’s hard to tell where the fiction begins and where the facts end. Wherever possible, the readings incorporate the actual surveillance audio of the lodgers that Oscar’s bugs captured, audio he evidently used as the source material for his stories. Many of the characters’ tales prove to be loosely interconnected and they ultimately offer a backdrop, and perhaps some answers, to the mysterious circumstances surrounding the eventual disappearance of Oscar and, indeed, of the motel itself.

Motel Heaven

I love podcasts like this! Unique and great fun to listen to - I really hope there’s a second season coming in the future, and that it finds a larger audience: the podcast universe needs a lot more stuff like this. Thanks to everyone involved ~ ✌️!!

Original, Great Quality

I normally don’t like anthologies and was worried that I wouldn’t like this one. Boy was I surprised (in the best way possible!) the stories are all interconnected and serve a greater purpose for the over arching main story.

Super original, paranormal, sci-fi/fantasy, you can tell that this podcast was made with a lot of love and passion. I’m about half way through and I am hooked! after listening to almost every audio drama podcast you can think of, it becomes hard to find something that stands out. So glad I found this little gem.
