Simply amazing.

Wow. Yeah, this is hella good. Heartfelt and super relatable as a 20-something queer artist living in the city. It’s kind of terrifying how accurately believable the emotion is, the voice actors alone are amazing. Plus, I love the idea of puppetry being something the main characters love a lot. Overall, an amazing and feelings-filled journey

Wild and Awesome

I love the way the audio is done. I also now want to become a street musician. I super relate to so many aspects of the story and it makes you think about love and so much more!

Brilliant, weird, thought provoking.. best in its field

I just finished episode 6 and barely know where to begin. the best script and voice acting of any podcast in its field. I laughed, I cried, I felt deep relation to the characters and also disgusted by them (a reflection of the compassion and mistrust I feel for my own thoughts & behaviors). I felt freedom and also discomfort. Listen to this podcast.. it opens the door to ponder existential questions about love, commitment, the purpose of it all.. its weird and it will make you feel emotions all over the spectrum. Love the work of KP and the shadows team!
