Going downhill

Sadly, it seems like this podcast it going downhill fast. The last episode about the fairy god mother ended and my first reaction was, “that’s it..?”
Seems like the stories use to have stronger endings or meaning in general. I’ll hang in there and still listen, but not sure for how much longer.

Love this podcast

I stumbled on this podcast and it is a great find! There are so many different stories, both in plot and theme. I binge listened to this and am waiting for more. There is also a story about The Hum that has a few different episodes. I just can't say enough good things about this pod!!!
