Update!?!

I would give this show 5 stars, but the fact that it is the greatest podcast and it had been over a month since the second episode with no update or mention of a third episodes frustrated me.

I check every night before bed for a new episode. This is my favorite podcast ever. I'm fine with monthly updates, but they just never stated how often they would update which gets irritating. If you guys tell us listeners why you have been slow with new episodes or how frequent you plan to update in the future I will change my review to five stars. Am I want to do that. Because the quality of this podcast deserves six stars. I've listened to the first two episodes over a dozen times and it never gets old.

lovely and odd

This podcast, hosting entries and winners from The Sarah Awards, is a mesmerizing production. It always feels so dreamlike, even all the pieces that people submit. Ann and Martin have created a wonderful framework story that just increases the level of fantasia to it. The Sarah Awards submissions just closed recently, so I'm looking forward to its return, to continue pushing the limits of what we can do with audio fiction and showcasing diverse voices.

New Years Resolution: Leave Podcast Reviews

New Years Resolution: finally leave reviews for at least your top 50 podcasts. They give you way too much free entertainment. The least you can do is leave them a quick review.

New Years Reality: I listen to 50+ exceptional podcasts. I don’t have time to write that many reviews.

New Years Solution: Leave this cookie-cutter review for the few(ish) podcasts you love. Only review the ones you would (or have) recommended to people in real life.

Review Note: I have listened to hundreds of podcasts, this is (in my humble opinion) the best of the best. Download, enjoy, and then recommend widely.
