I wasn't sure about this podcast at first because it was more of an audio drama than I usually go for (typically I listen to found footage or mockumentary when it comes to fictional podcasts) but I'm glad I tried it out. By a few episodes in I was invested in the characters and the mystery of Mt. Absalom. The pacing is good and at the start of season 3 the show is still working up to its big bad reveal (which I love since shows are never quite the same once this moment comes and goes). Also, the production quality is sky high. The audio is very clear and the voice actors are talented and convincing. Great show about relationships and the paranormal.
Such a wonderful cast of characters in a very odd town. I love the humor and intrigue of the stories.
I am interested in the characters and their outcome. Exceptional acting. This has really turned me on to horror audio dramas. Can not wait to see where it goes.
A delightful podcast with the perfect amount of twists and turns to keep you interested and guessing.
Absolutely phenomenal. Frankly the best of the best.
What was this Podcast actually about? I liked the sound realization, not so much the storytelling part...
Discovered this on a Spotify recommendation, and it is amazing. The voice acting, sound, and story are incredible. Really glad I stumbled across it, and have been binging it all week.
This story interweaves difficult family relationships, life in a small town, and spooky stuff beautifully. I can't wait for the third season, I wanna go back to Mount Absalom!
One of the most phenomenally written and produced audio dramas I've ever heard. It’s a little bit of everything, a surreal modern Gothic, a mother-daughter tale, a small town mystery, a supernatural slow-burn, a haunted house, a dark comedy, and many other things you definitely don't want me to spoil--and it's all amazing. It’s touching, thrilling, immersive, and funny all at once, and that SOUND DESIGN! Excellent in every way.
An adult Gravity Falls...so rad.
Engaging plot and a great cast. The dialog is excellent. Sound design is awesome. It's a well done podcast, and I find myself looking forward to each episode.
Love everything about this podcast, amazing soundscaping and storyline is amazing. Acknowledging the occupation of indigenous territories is a big big big bonus on top of that.
Unwell is a drama with a supernatural twist, but at it's heart is its characters, who you become engrossed in their story from the first episode (or whenever the character appears). The first season made you hate having to wait for the second season, and the second season is continuing the story, and making you want the next episode right away.
I truly adore this show. This bizarre and mysterious town has wormed its way into my heart and I care so deeply for Lillian and her friends. It's so thoughtful and considerate in its representation and the story being told and it's truly a joy when a new episode appears in my feed.
A gorgeous mystery which will suck you in as it slowly unfolds. The sound design is amazing, and the characters fascinating.
I love everything about this audio drama, from the sound design to the writing. It is one of my go-tos right now. And it's honestly a lifeline during this pandemic. 10/10 all the stars! (And all the hearts, too!)
Love, love, love this podcast so much, and it’s for sure a new favorite. Almost every episode is worth 5 stars. It has amazing representation and portrayals of academic conversations. The characters here have some brilliant dialogue. We so need more shows like these in the world.
I really adore this show, from the acting to the sound design and everything in between. I love visiting Mt. Absalom with each episode, getting to know the mystery behind the small town.
I very much like the sound design and the characters but the story is really slow (Probably doesn't mean much coming from me) and I have not really seen any significant horror elements 10 episodes in.
