I just discovered this podcast this week, two days ago in fact, and I've never been a podcast type listener. Like Dougie I mostly listen to music on Spotify. Now I'm completely enraptured by the serial and I'm like a heroin addict trying to get my next fix. I finished the first season, Halloween special, and the Christmas spirits episode with absolute glee. The writing is magnificent! Just stupendous! The characters are perfectly voiced and if I do say so myself, entrancing. I found myself leaning forward on the edge of my seat oblivious to the world around me as I followed Lee into each wild and sinister story. My favorite so far has to be St Caillic, a spooky believably real island with a history not too far fetched to be dismissed. I just cannot say enough good things about "A Scottish Podcast" and I'm sharing it with the small group of people I know who might actually listen to me and it.
Digging deeper than just an entertaining story, I think the commentary about podcasts that threads itself through the supernatural storyline is insightful and worth taking a moment to recognize for the "woke" (God I hate myself for using that) message it conveys. And also the bit about paranormal activity, people chase the supernatural wanting to never get full fledged proof but glimpses of wonder and otherworldly.
But tl:dr I fucking love the stories and I hope the whole cast keep doing what they're doing for as long as they can.
Much appreciation from the crazy state of Florida.
