Great show

Great sound production, and voice acting. I love the story and the characters, they present an interesting mystery to the audience, and it really stands out from other podcasts

Amazing and Terrifying

This is an amazing audio drama! For me this has been the most frightening adaptation of HPL I’ve encountered in any media. And honestly I think this adaptation scared me more than reading any HPL originals. Bonus: I’m from New England and actually write about the history of magic professionally—and the New England setting and guest academic both rang true.

Awesome modern Lovecraft story

These guys do a fantastic job of updating Lovecraft for the modern era, including some much-needed cultural appreciation for the “mad Arab” and other problematic elements from the original. It’s gripping, really fun to listen to, and all-around well done. Listen to it!
