Welcome to Newfield. A brief glimpse into the first episode of this haunting story.
I’m a huge fan of no sleep and heard about this from their podcast and I thought Newfield was GREAT! I wish it was longer but I get it had a natural end to it! Y’all keep goin and making awesome stuff for us people who drive a lot for work! Haha
The acting is bad that it’s hard to even listen to🤦♂️
“Newfield” is great radio theatre: vivid, compelling, original storytelling. The story changes course in a surprising and dramatic way, and had us leaning forward to the very end.
Can’t wait for the next Roaring Box production!
