Why did it end?

First a few quibbles. Audio recording techniques and constant noticable edits were distracting. However, not everyone ian audio producer (not easy to do), but the story is what is most important. The idea of this person publishing his grandfather's diary is unique. The intiial preview was engaging and I wanted more. Very sad to see he has not followed up on the project for what looks like 4-5 years, but I am sure it is not an easy thing to do. So, for what it's worth, please take my review as encouragement to do more if/when you have the time!

Missed opportunity

Story deserves a 5 star. The problem is only 1 episode. Incredible story with great real life drama and nothing in 4 years since posted. It’s a waste.... too bad.
