Andrewthb ,

To infrequent episode release to stayed geeked up.

This is one the better podcasts out there. I truly enjoy listening to it, but there is just to much time between episode releases.

I know there was Covid and personal matters, but even before that it was on a every other month schedule.

I can’t wait years for Victoria’s resolution.

Stay in your lane

Very entertaining skits, some of which are thought provoking but the political one comes off as trite and desperate....and I am NO Trump supporter.
This president does a fantastic job all by himself displaying all his flaws and short comings.
This story feels forced, contrived and falls short of its intended goal.
It would be better to stick with the imaginative storylines that makes this podcast enjoyable.

MiKrumm ,

Really enjoying this dark story.

Up until a few weeks ago every single podcast I have ever listened to has been more academic based. Mostly botany, conservation, evolutionary biology and theology. I have yet to ever even listen to a audiobook or read a digital one. Always been into paper books. Probably just because it’s what I grew up on. But I started listening to two other horror story podcasts and just absolutely enjoyed it. This one was mentioned on one and I liked the crossover episode with the librarian and so I started listening to this one. I’m only on season one episode 18 at the moment and so I’m way behind but I’m glad because I really enjoy this one as well. I’m going to limit it to just 2-4 episodes a day though to make it last through October. Sorry this is so long. It kind of reminds me of hell girl.
