    Can You Hear That?

    Can You Hear That?

    What if, out of nowhere, you started hearing a low-frequency rumble, like a truck idling right outside your home, in the middle of the night, every night for weeks and months on end -- and no one else could hear it?

    Two Owls

    Two Owls

    To connect with an owl, even in a small way, is a rare gift. Elusive, mysterious and powerful: owls inspire both fear and awe.

    Zebra

    While graffiti is seen by some as blight, and by others as art, the act of hiding in the shadows and stealthily scrawling your name on a wall is ultimately about being seen, rather than doing damage. This was definitely the case for a boy who went...

    Filling in the Blanks

    In this high tech world, you're never without a camera, and can take a picture anywhere you go. But do these images convey the feelings of awe, excitement, wonder and fear you had while you were in those places? Adam Katseff discovered a way...

This podcast is amazing but...

...I don’t understand what is going on with pod’s feed in Apple Podcasts. Almost entire of my history of listening was lost. I can accept it once, everybody can make a mistake even the greatest. But it happens again and again. I want to see when I was listening to each episode. But even most recent three episodes has been disappeared from recently played. And because of that this app regularly ask me do I still listen this podcast and stops downloading new episodes because it think last time I played this show in 2018. It’s a little but annoying obstacle to fully enjoying this show. Please do something with it.

My favorite podcast

By far my favorite podcast. Your voice, the sound design, everything makes me feel like I'm in the woods at night. Just one thing, Barn Owls hunt by sound, not by light/vision. Sorry! I feel really bad saying that but it's true. I tried to not say anything but I felt like I'd be doing you wrong by not mentioning it. LOVE YOU SO MUCH DONT HATE ME

The best modern day night time radio

I look forward to every episode that comes out. My favorite modern program to listen to on my nighttime, moonlit-walk smoke/thought sessions. Keep up the amazing work
