I was introduced to this podcast through a class I am taking and I am so entranced by this podcast. It is beautifully told - the voice of Sudipta and his inflections are outstanding. The audio and sound by Avi is remarkable and clever. I highly recommend listening to this podcast! Thank you!

The people behind this show have put in a lot of effort. The naration and sound effects have kept me hooked to this podcast. Please keep up the good work. Thanks!
Very well done, thank you 🙏🏻
