Awesome

Love the show. Refreshing and great storytelling!

Mr.Fartchel ,

Love it mostly

I really love the meat of the show , not all the readers are my favorite and there is one that I can’t stand his cadence , but other waste they are awesome stories read well. BUT the “house keeping is essentially half, or a third the episode it feels like. I’d say either make the episodes longer or find a way for less house keeping done in the podcast . It’s quite frustrating in that it breaks the middle and feel between the stories

Happy tot ,

Good creepy

Good!
