RATING
The show is a slow burn that relies too much on repeating some beats and the sound effects and editing do a lot of the heavy lifting early on. As time goes on the larger story unfolds and it is truly great stuff but the show has a couple of points in which it could have ended.
The presentation of this podcast is a really great concept, and is executed beautifully. The conscious AI SAYER is a voice in one’s head directing them through the myriad fatal dangers that come with living on Typhon, and Adam Bash’s voice acting perfectly toes the line between soothing and unsettling. The writing is spectacular, and is full of brilliantly dark humor with clever references. I also can’t help but enjoy the irony of listening to a story about expendable workers in a merciless corporate facility while I myself toil away in a warehouse like an underpaid worker bee.
Finished it, but wasn't crazy about it. Some of the episodes were a little creepy, but a majority didn't grab my attention enough to be excited for what comes next.
Easily one of my favorite podcasts, and one I highly recommend to sci-fi/horror fans, especially fans of AI and transhumanism in fiction. The first few seasons are more episodic, but seasons four and five are heavily plot-driven. Also the voice is just really soothing to listen to.
Excellent audio quality, but I just can't get into this format. Experimental and creepy and legitimately hurts my ears. Very art house. YMMV.
One of my earlier ventures into the realm of fictional podcasts, and still one of my favorites. I'm super into the whole insidious AI bent, and am glad it's back from the break.
Best sci-fi story/podcast in a long time!
