Bingeable

Found this on a list of queer drama/sci fi/mystery podcast recs on Reddit and I am SO GLAD I listened. There are times when I think the audio could be a little better, or that the sound effects could be more polished but in the end, I listened to all 16 episodes in 72 hours and audibly gasped at work during one of the later episodes, so…clearly I was hooked. Just finished the available episodes and subscribed to the patroon. Cannot wait for season 2!!!

The writing is great!

The writing is great; it gives me Night Vale/Alice Isn’t Dead vibes – I like how it’s a podcast within a podcast. It lends a type of tangible realness to the series that makes it feel like it could all be real… And who’s to say it isn’t!

OBSESSED

Constantly excited for new episodes. Love the queer inclusivity that is incorporated in a casual way that fits effortlessly. Writers and voice actors are obviously talented and put in lots of hard work. Can’t wait for many more eps to come! 💚
