An auditory Dante’s Divine Comedy with comedy worthy of SNL

There is no subtlety to the initiation of this auditory drama. From a relatively mundane beginning you are promptly strapped into the audio equivalent of a roller coaster modeled on Dante’s Divine Comedy modeled through Nightvale, Monty Python and others. The lack of connectivity between episodes engenders itself to the chaotic machinations and comedic episodes of this podcast. A mix of horror and abstract warping of our concepts of reality worthy of Tim Burton with shining comedic jewels paying homage to some of comedy’s star figures. One is left stunned and mentally exhausted by its conclusion but thoroughly entertained. Highly recommended.

Ridiculously good.

When I found this podcast, it was like turning over a mossy rock and finding a fully furnished five bedroom house underneath. Slow to put out new content? Yes. Is the wait worth it? YES! Really, guys. I would pay good money for more of these.
