I loved it

This podcast was right up my alley.

I love the efficient dialogue and the dark steely vibe, the ambient supportive sound design was just enough to fill in necessary gaps in the narrative and not overdone.

The narrator was superb…reminded me of Aeon Flux

The writing is tight and eloquent with an ending befitting the spirit of the story.

My only gripe was was the faux ads. As entertaining as they were, they detracted from the gravity of the storyline.

Overall, well done.

One Season Wasn't Enough

I found it really interesting and was enjoying the Sci-Fi aspects, but a single season just whet my appetite.
