All the stars, and then some
Honestly, a masterpiece in more ways than just the premise of the show. Nothing is left uncovered and I cannot wait to see (or hear) what happens next.
I’m only 2 episodes in but I can already tell this is going to become a favorite. It’s hard to know what to expect from this show at first, but I promise it’s worth it.
Great Serial Fiction
Silicon Angels checks all the boxes. Funny, compelling, and short enough episodes to listen on the way to work. I actually binge-listened to Season 1 in about 3 days. It's that good.
