Malevolent is a cosmic horror story with plenty of mysterious twists and turns as the stakes deepen. It is an overall excellent show with strong writing, engaging descriptions, an immersive atmosphere, and interesting characters. Patreon backers receive early access to shorter episodes (compiled later into publicly available content), and can even vote on various decisions at the end of each episode. These choices are woven seamlessly into the overarching story, and the strong writing brings it all together in a way consistent with the characters and direction of the story. The concept, including the use of a sightless character, works really well in this format and serves to create a rich world that I have enjoyed exploring. I started listening to the free content, binged that, and started backing on Patreon because I wanted to hear more. A really delightful and terrifying show.
