Great programming but publishing is inconsistent

Superb

Just when I think I have found the prefect podcast for creative,touching, scary, haunting, mind pictures easily imaged by the voice actors , a long comes this site. 5 is not enough stars. 10 out of 10 in every part of the shows offered to us. My favorite by far. having listened every night for over a year to other good podcast, then finding this great creative podcast is truly my secret gem. I jealously share my find in this review with others, just to good to not gift to others.
