Hollow Spider ,

Amazing Podcast!

The actors are amazing with how they pull you into the story. The storytelling in this is so strong that it feels like I was actually there. I also liked how you pulled in characters from the podcast MODUS files into the story. Keep up the great work!

A little bit of everything for this podcast

7 episodes into the series. I was initially turned off from the accents and dialogue. It was hard for me to believe if this could be an actual accompaniment of the fallout franchise. It sounded like a soft core xxx audio book at times, and it doesn’t help that certain elements aren’t lore friendly.

Still, I find myself wanting to continue listening. Characters are endearing, and it’s a nice exploration of relationships.
