Great OTR

I am hooked on OTR and Suspense is one of my favorite shows. I appreciate the narrator’s intros to each show. Suspense featured many big stars in its day and it is great to be able to hear them all.

Top Tier Quality!

Amazing host and highly curated shows with excellent audio fidelity. Not your run of the mill OTR podcast.

Great “Suspense” selections

Best sound quality of any old time radio program Podcasts I’ve listened to and I love the introduction of the radio actors and their mini biographies. Outstanding.
