Phenomenal Sci-Fi storytelling

Found this just recently and ripped through season one. Fingers crossed they’re making more. This can’t be a cheap show with such immersive production with background sounds and voices.

Nah Buv ,

Solid show

Suggested to any sci fi podcast fans.

Cinematic and intriguing

SPECTRE is an absolutely gorgeous show -- I think the word "cinematic" would be apt in more ways than one (audio, writing, pacing). The action starts immediately and we follow a fairly close POV on Rho, who doesn't remember much about who she is. The flashback episode midseason was very well timed to give us a bit more to go on on her past, but I also love spending as much time as possible with the wacky crew of the Spectre itself -- I'm especially intrigued to learn more about the mysterious Captain...looking forward to hearing more! Also, I can't possibly end this review without shouting out the sound design: it's just excellent.
