Amazing Show

This podcast has become one of my absolute favorites. I can’t stop listening to it and I know I’ll be sad when I finish all the episodes. Luckily, I can already tell that these stories have tremendous replay value. Keep these incredible shows coming. I’m signing up on the Patreon today. You deserve to get paid for content this good.

Great Storytelling w/ a Twist

Stumbled onto this podcast a few months ago, while trying to keep myself from going insane during quarantine. I love it! I love Victoria and wish I could give her a big hug. (I realize saying that is evidence that I haven’t successfully prevented myself from going just a bit mad in isolation) Great storytelling that always has me guessing what the plot twist will be. Thank you so much for the time and effort you put in to make each episode!

Not my cup of tea

I like a good story and this isn’t it, for me at least. As a listener, I felt I wasn’t given enough insight into who Victoria is to care about what she says or does and am expected to step over that to also care about a nonexistent building where weird, out of context things arbitrarily happen.
