Love a good anthology
The last year in the pandemic pulled my focus in a million different directions. I really appreciate shows like this one that can tell a concise, fascinating story in bite-sized (15-30 minute) collections of episodes.
Love this podcast!
This is what podcasting is all about! Reminiscent of the best of old time radio shows on a modern medium!!
This show really takes you out of your mind and into a new world. The stakes are high, the plot thickens. It’s a delightful ride for any Science fiction fan.
