Worth A Listen

The Orphans is my favorite podcast and I’m always excited to see new content. Excellent sound quality, amazing voice acting and engaging storytelling. Keep up the great work!

Anonymous little meepmouse ,

Pretty good

Just finished season 2 and I’m liking it overall. It has good voice acting and storytelling. The pacing is quite strong. I like the concept of interconnected smaller stories, since each season is its own story, and so far it’s pulling it off well.

However. Characters often make leaps of logic or in their character arcs, and the antagonists have evil voices, which I’m not fond of. There are also so many ads it’s hard to want to pick the podcast up, knowing I’ll be spending so much of my time skipping through the ads.

Woozy woowoo ,

One of my top 5 favorite shows

If u like action, suspense, syfy ect… then give this a try, I am so glad I found it and listened, acting, writing and sound effects are great, I am only a few shows and felt the need to comment. GIVE IT A LISTEN, u won’t b disappointed
