Fantastic in every way!!!

I am an avid podcast listener. The Horror of Dolores Roach has become one of my all time favorites up there with Homecoming, S*** Town, and Serial. Daphne Rubin-Vega is brilliant and so is the supporting cast including Bobby Cannavale, actually all of the sound production/music too. I really hope they make a TV version of this and please don’t replace Rubin-Vega like they did with Catherine Keener in Homecoming (sorry Julia Roberts but in a podcast we get attached to the voice). Daphne Rubin-Vega is this show’s voice! Loved this!!
