Excellent podcast

Such a great idea for a podcast and so creepy! Love the topics presented with great audio quality and narration. Keep up the good work!!

HeartsOfMachines ,

Rambling

Topics are good, but there doesn’t seem to be much focus to the stories and they just kind of ramble and meander all over, throwing in irrelevant details.

BeerWithBuffy-Josh ,

Good Stuff!

Creeps me out so much with the background music! But the stories always seem to catch my imagination, whether they're believable or not, that doesn't make them not fascinating. The episode about Mad Man Marcus and the time slip of Sir Victor Goddard really left an imprint on my brain, titled Standberry, MO/ Drem, Scottland.
