 56 people rated this podcast
In this horror/fantasy serial drama, Carpenter and Faulkner, two worshippers of an outlawed god, travel up the length of their deity’s great black river, searching for holy revelations.

As their pilgrimage lengthens and the river’s mysteries deepen, the two acolytes find themselves under threat from a police manhunt, but also come into conflict with the weirder gods that have flourished in these forgotten rural territories.

Two seasons released, one more on the way.

The amount of love I have for Carpenter is indescribable. I cannot wait to find out more about the Trawler Man and Faulkners Backstory and the mystery of this amazing, creepy world.
This is one of the best shows I have listened to, and one of the few that has genuinely horrified me. The characters are fantastic, well-acted, and well-written, but really, it's the world that drew me in and held me. It's... awful. Wonderful. Deeply fascinating. What would a world be like if gods were active, ubiquitous, hungry, powerful, and possibly not even truly sapient? The absolute uncaring nature of the gods in this, and the way that shapes civilization is explored deeply, without info dumping at the audience. The writers take away any polite fictions, and dig in to just how badly something like this could (would?) go, given human nature, even accounting for the existence of good people. I've seen magic framed as divine power before. And I've seen divine power framed as a natural resource. But the way this show looks at the gods themselves is something I've not come across, and it's executed wonderfully. If you like horror, and are willing to actually be horrified, listen.
weird and captivating. I'm not big on mythical stuff but this is done extremely realistically. a post apocalypse what if gods existed/people believed in a bunch of them they slightly reminded me of Winchesters with their bickering and under-skin love for each other. good podcast, tough to pitch, it seems it needs to have a certain appreciative audience who slightly know what they are getting into
