OMG! You are the best!

I admit I listen to several podcasts, mostly spooky fiction, and you are the best! I’ve turned my sister on to you, and can not tell you my level of thrill when a new episode is released ! Thank you!!

I hope it never ends

This is my addiction. And I’m upset at all the breaks they have to take! LOL! I think about this story often. I love all the characters and voice acting. It amazes me that podcasts can stir up so much emotion. I love that I can create the characters looks in. T head. Keep up the amazing work!

Amazing storytelling and world

This show is amazing! I’ve listened to many fictional podcasts, but this one is definitely top of the charts. The sound design really helps immerse you in the story and the world. They have done an amazing job building realistic but unique characters; that drive this story. The world is rich with its own lore and makes it feel like a believable setting. The show manages to be a wonderful mix of creepy and wondrous, I can’t wait for season 3’s conclusion. This season has been slower, but I think they wanted to take to time to flesh out the characters and relationships more, while building up the plot in the background. Take the time to listen and fall in love, you won’t regret it!
