One of my newest favorites! I adore the mystique associated with a strange collection of artifacts combined with the question of personhood and sentience that arises from the featuring of mechanical A.I. characters. It's so wonderful. The story is a joy to piece together as the plot thickens. I think listeners who enjoy podcasts like Welcome to Night Vale, Archive 81, The Magnus Archives, and I am in Eskew would really enjoy this series. If that describes you, what are you waiting for? Start listening!
Truly excellent, very engaging story telling that really drew me in every episode. There is just enough description to let you imagine how things might look, and I had a very easy time “seeing” what was happening. The “exhibit” stories are all very interesting as one offs and the overarching plot thread is intriguing. Looking forward to the next season!
I absolutely LOVE this podcast. I found it yesterday and I stayed up listening to it all night. I couldn't stop. The stories are so interesting, the links are captivating and I feel like I have a connection with the audio tour guide. I made a log in for this site just to rate it, because I cannot express how amazing this podcast it. Of all the ones I've listened to, this is by far my favourite. Please please please go listen to it!
This show has been on my mind every day for the past weeks. I just cannot get over how amazing it is, how good the acting and sound design are and Especially not how good the writing is. This is legitimately one of just 3 podcasts that actually made me gasp several times. I also can't even begin to describe how attached I got to the audio tour guide. I wish there was a way I could talk to them and tell them everything is fine (maybe there's a way to leave a voicemail? Idk). The episodes are also very original, some of my favourites (without spoilers) include the chair (you know which chair I'm talking about), the place where the monsters are supposed to be and the robotic mother. I'll also never be over the wlw witch, the bittersweet gay romance and the space story. But also one of the things I could really SCREAM about is the plot twists and cliffhangers. They are so so good and I feel so stupid for KNOWING that the writer is great at season endings and still going into the season 2 finale without seeing anything coming. I had to tell so many friends and texted to several group chats for emotional support. NO podcast has ever made me feel as villanous as this one. Every episode I'd catch myself thinking: season 2 could not have been better. And then the next episode came out and it just got better. And now the season finale is out and /this/ happened and it's so, SO hard not to talk about it all the time or spoil it for friends. If this podcast was a song I'd put it on a playlist titled "songs to listen to while making evil plans" and it would be the only song on the list. This podcast makes me want to sit on a big chair, have a white cat and cackle like a witch. This podcast makes me want to go wild and plot a heist. Worst of all (this is actually a good thing, there's just nothing open right now but that's obviously no the fault of the writer lol), this podcast makes me want to go to a museum. Also the creators cats are very cute 11/10
This is my current obsession show - an anthology supernatural series in the guise of a sentient Audio Guided Tour of the titular museum, the stories are a nice blend of dark, poignant and funny, with just a light touch of connection through the stories to keep you on your toes. If you're a fan of The Magnus Archives's linked stories, this series will likely scratch that same itch, but with a uniquely Australian sense of humour!
A fantastic blend of surrealist horror and comedy vaguely reminiscent of Welcome to Nightvale, but more grounded in general and in history in particular. It has quite a knack for taking stories in delightfully unexpected directions while still maintaining narrative coherence.
