    She comes with the cold, wrapped in fog; she walks the streets, looking, always looking. The cold will only go when she gets what she wants; what she needs. Stay safe by the fire, people; try to stay safe when Liriel comes to town.

Castro is the answer!

Listen to the podcast on Castro, so you can put the speed on 1.1. Then it is PERFECT. Where can I find season 1?

Just Read the Stories Please

The excruciatingly slow theatrical pace of this podcast is maddening. I think it’s intended to be soothing but the huge pauses and awkward pacing are irritating. It distracts from well crafted, unique stories that (refreshingly) aren’t sci-fi. I started listening at 1 1/2x speed and it helps but of course the voice is distorted. A natural reading of these great stories would be far more entertaining that this scripted awkwardness.

Nope

The narrator’s delivery makes this unlistenable, sadly.
