With its lovable cast of eccentric characters, fantastic storytelling that swaggers between grim humor and tragedy, and one of the most sardonic narrators in existence, Death By Dying has earned its place as my favorite fiction podcast. If you loved Pushing Daisies or the humor of Hitchiker's Guide to the Galaxy, then you should give Death By Dying a listen.
If my religious all girls school hadn't turned me bi as a child, this podcast would probably have done the trick. I am in love with the podcast itself, the Obituary Writer, Charlotte, the haunted bicycles, the Angel of Death, Crestfall and honestly pretty much every character in this story!
I just couldn't get into this. The premise sounds like fun but it was a bit slow getting started and I lost interest quickly.
Very reminiscent of a more lighthearted Edgar Allen Poe story, with twists that make you laugh one second and cry the next. Loved it, and so excited for Season Two!
I love this podcast. The concept is amazing and the humor is on point. The Obituary Writer is such an interesting character. But above all, this is a podcast that was clearly made with a lot of love and care. It shows in every creative choice.
A must for any comedy lover, the writing starts out great and gets better. Laugh out loud funny, cleaver writing, great acting great sound. Bump it to the top of your list!
This show is an all time Hall of Fame favorite for me. There is literally nothing I don’t love about this show, from it’s dark, wry tone to its hilarious worldbuilding to its genuine creepiness to its ability to turn on a dime from silly to genuinely melancholic and deeply touching. There are so many memorable characters (the Button-Eyed Raven, the Slapper, Pastor Jeff) and bits (the apricot battle in the town market, OW’s immaculate fashion sense, Gert, the line “he wasn’t the talk of the town, but he was the talker of the town”) Over the course of the five main-plot episodes it goes on a truly, insanely well-crafted journey with one of those tone shifts in the last act that feels at once like a huge twist but also inevitable and right. It reminds me so much of Over the Garden Wall in its final episode and I mean that in the best way possible--spooky and dark but also oddly comforting, existentially sad but also life affirming and hopeful. I adore it.
I can’t quite get over this writing and world-building. It’s absurd, brimming with wit, pleasantly-grim, and I’m absolutely dying for season 2.
Funny, beatiful, sad at times, this show weaves an idiosyncratic world around you and explores it together. Audio drama and comedy in the best traditions of Bryan Fuller. I can't wait for season 2
This show has sucked me into a charmingly bizarre world of murder, mysterious death angels, and man-eating cats. The perfect balance of unexplained weirdness, humor, and genuine meditations on friendship, death, and loss. I wish I could live in Crestfall! Although, on second thought, I don't know if I could survive there for longer than a couple of episodes.
Dark humor, creative world, highly recommended
I love this show! Well-written, well-acted, and wonderfully fast-paced. The Angel of Death *will* become your favorite character.
A very fun dark comedy podcast. Similar vibes to WTNV, but is very much its own thing, and it will be very exciting to listen to more of this
This show is something special for sure, the premise is so unique and lends itself to the podcast medium so well. The first seasons was a thing of beauty and I can not wait for seasons two. No would be a great time to binge it all if you have not already.
Equal parts comedic and tragic, this podcast is unforgettable, even after just the first season. Wild characters, beautiful narrative arcs, and truly touching moments combine into one of my new favorite podcasts! I love it and I can't wait for the next season!
It's like WTNV meets Six Feet Under.
Loved it. Great first season. Can't wait for more.
A very unique and charming show. Witty, weird and worrying (sorry!) all at the same time. An interesting premise, excellent writing and great voice acting has easily made this show a favorite.
Anything that can match the whimsy, heart, and macabre fascination with death of Pushing Daisies is a great podcast in my book. This is a great podcast.
