A LOVELY HAUNTING FOR THE EARS!

Very quickly I was able to get this podcast and from there it's been a haunted ride of fun and delight. The creators of this pod were really smart in creating a simple premise from which they could explore all of Poe's tales. It's set in an asylum as you the viewer meet all the different inmates. Besides the writing, which does a great job of moving things along and taking advantage of the medium... I like how they keep to a small, but very talented cast of actors. Letting the thespians do their magic and then seasoning in some wonderful sound effects and music. If you're a fan of Poe or scary stories... This is definitely worth a listen! Kudos to the production team.
