Captivating

Amazing production quality. Good character development. Very complex and well thought out storyline. And the show has great atmosphere. Highly recommended!

C&A-E ,

Dune meets Hunger Games meets Ender's Game

This is the perfect show for anyone who loves sci-fi and is looking for a captivating new world to get excited about. If you like the large scale space-politics of Dune, the social commentary of the Hunger Games, and the moral quandries of the advanced weaponry of Ender's Game, you'll feel right at home with the Madness of Chartrulean. The show manages to portray something entirely original in the sci-fi genre, particularly with its beautifully ethereal score and phenomenal voice acting. Well worth a listen!

Mr. Furious ,

A great story flawlessly executed

A great story can be let down by inconsistent or sub-par production values, and a show that sounds perfect will be hollow and forgettable if it isn’t in support of a compelling tale. This show combines both of those aspects in a way that I’d expect to hear from a big-studio production. Everything is outstanding - the acting, the writing, the sound design, the pacing… even if I wanted to nitpick I couldn’t. It’s incredibly immersive and beyond that the listener’s attention and focus is rewarded at every turn.
