The perfect combination of pop culture & the unknown

I don’t know how I stumbled upon this podcast, but I’m SO glad I did. I love the references to current events/tends. I’m from the PNW so that unground club in Olympia really hit home. The difference character are clearly defined by their vocals and diction. Whenever a new episode comes out I jump to listen to it. Amazing podcast!!!!

YA-level

Who knows if this will hold up - it’s just ok so far - not great - mostly due to weak story and unconvincing lead actor.

...BUT, it’s much better if you think of it as YA-level or YA-focused. If that’s what they’re going for, it’s pretty good.

The story’s a cliched, trope-ridden narrative, with a silly over use of the f-word (might be more convincing from a more skilled lead actor?). The other actors and sound design are fine, if again, gripped too firmly by the many, many cliches...

Four stars for now - especially if it's intentionally YA/young adult-focused.
