Listened for the first time today

The only thing better than a good story is a very good story teller! Can not wait till the 2nd part of this story. Looking forward to listening to some past podcasts in the meantime.

The voice…

These stories are so interesting, but I cannot listen to the host’s monotonous style of storytelling any longer.

Love it!

I really enjoy this podcast— interesting stories, the narrator’s voice is very soothing, and the mood is atmospheric and spooky. Also love that he reads the ads himself, that makes a big difference to my listening experience, it’s so much better than the obnoxious ads on most other podcasts. Please keep up the great work :)
