I first started listening to this show right about episode 5 or so. Then with a phone crash and a change in jobs I lost track of the show for over a year. I was delighted to find it again and realize that the storytelling was practically unchanged, while production quality had greatly improved. I hope she keeps this podcast going for as long as it gives her and her fans joy.
Really great podcast - interesting and PERFECT to listen to right before bed.
An interesting and immersive podcast about the strange. I began around episode 10 and quickly devoured the previous episdoes and have stayed up to date ever since Always looking forward to what she talks about in the next episode.
