I usually don't like apocalyptics stories too much, because they're just too depressing. But despite having serious and horrifying and sad moments , this podcast also manages to not get too depressing for me. There are many light hearted moments and nice memories and best of all it never seems like all hope is lost, if that makes sense?
I also love the mystery at the heart of all of this! And the sound design is very nostalgic, low key and well done in my opionion.
The acting is also very well done, so having one narrator never gets stale.
Personal highlight of the show: "I did eat a quarter of a block of cheese" - the most iconic and relatable podcast quote 2020. And (without spoilers but the people who listened will know what I mean) the window cleaning scene in episode 3 had SUCH a good setup, I SCREAMED.
