CVG Southwest ,

Good story

I’m on episode 6 and so far it’s a great and intriguing story!

Concerned Hobbit ,

Can’t wait for new episodes!

This podcast is a treat for the mind and the ear. Great voice acting, atmospheric sound effects, and a gripping plot make the story come alive, while the literary allusions and philosophical questions leave you pondering long after the episode ends.

Torii95 ,

Great story!

The voice actors are doing a great job of bringing the characters to life! Looking forward to the full release!
