NoCanDu ,

This is THE BEST horror podcast!

I was totally in after the first episode and it only got better from there! I’m obviously late to the party, but all the better for binge listening. I’m 52, and this reminds me a lot of the ABC Radio Mystery Theater from the late 70s/early 80s, but 1000x better! Jon, where have your voice and your writing been all my life? Can’t wait to keep listening tonight!

Edge of my seat!

I’m only 70 episodes in, but I’m so hooked! I like to listen a good spooky podcast while I work with my hands or grind in an RPG video game. This podcast is my new go to! I’m constantly on the edge of my seat with this one. The individual stories are good, and the Magnus archive bigger story is thrilling! I love how all the little puzzle pieces fit together in this branching narrative. You all are killing it! Can’t wait to catch up!

Comfort food w its ❤️ in the right place

While it’s not the cerebral spookfest the gushing reviews tend to claim, it’s a really enjoyable, easy-to-digest podcast that’s great accompaniment to chores and yard work. Goofy, sweet, with some cool moments and a fun cast of voices. A safe bet for chatting about with a young adult. Overall has a heartfelt feel, and I can see why its fans are very passionate about it.
