"One of the best podcasts out there! Such a good blend of episodic horror and long term story! "
Erie reviewed this podcast on Aug 14th, 2018
"I mainlined this show in three days, barely sleeping or communicating with the outside world, such was its thrall. The standalone stories are enthralling, and the framing story is so much of what I want in a podcast: deeply accessible characters, beautiful writing, and very good dark jokes."
