Fantastic!

I just found out about this podcast and decided to start on episode 400. Boy was I glad, and completely surprised! The story of homunculi combined with the amazing narration, made it an incredibly memorable story. I’ve been listening through the episodes as fast as I can and so far, I’ve enjoyed every one!

Great podcast

Ads ruin it

I have enjoyed listening to this show, particularly in bed, but the addition of the intrusive and particularly terrible ads have rendered this unlistenable!
