1. Not scary at all, and quickly grows repetitive - The show format, while interesting, does not lend itself well to a cohesive story. I listened well into season one and there was no actual plot other than a recurring glow cloud and the host’s crush. At a certain point, it got so boring I couldn’t continue listening. The only good aspect was the comedy. Most of the spook stories were funny rather than scary, which I would have enjoyed if it wasn’t so repetitive.
2. Wonderfully weird - I finally finished binge listening and have really enjoyed it. It’s very creative, the characters are fun and the narrator has a great voice and way of acting. I love how unapologetically weird it is and how funny it can be at times. It took about a month of listening during work to get through it, I’m not sure what my favorite storyline is but it would probably involve Kevin. He was delightful. I don’t know how long they can keep making episodes but I’ll listen as long as they keep making them. Keep up the great work, guys. I just ordered all the WTN books. I’m looking forward to reading them. Oh, I have a hack for those complaining about the ads and weather. I found this hidden button you can tap that fast forwards through them if you don’t want to listen to that part. I also found another hack for those complaining about it being political. It’s called “getting over yourself, you’re not the main character of the universe; Cecil and Carlos are.” I hope that helps.
3. All time favorite podcast - When I first started listening I referred to this as my “nonsense” show. Turns out it is nonsense, but also it isn’t? The main story line totally creeps in (in a good way!). Love the writing, love the delivery. It’s just good wholesome nonsense and I can’t get enough!
4. re-education from redacted - “The definition of toast is holding a piece of bread under fire tell crisp. star much wow I am out of here chumps stars sure but the fifth ran away / because it takes like year to upload new episodes If you scrolled down here

5. Amazing! - This podcast is amazing, though I noticed after I began to listen to it strange events began occurring in my town. I have always been a fan of wheat and wheat by-products, but recently there have been many reports of wheat and wheat by-product attacks. A strange man has been following me, though I am not sure is is a man or human at all. It whispers only one thing. “Thë dîßtæńt príñçê įš ćømīńg fór ÿõû”. Edit- It is here. I am hiding in my closet, praying that it- the thing- does not get me her
6. Amazing content- terrible listening experience - Please just go subscriber or at least have the option. The creativity is still there, Cecil is still amazing the writing is great and I understand everyone needs to get paid. I’d happily pay to get a significant amount of content because now the ad to content ratio in these episodes makes it hardly worth a listen. Once a truly great podcast, so bogged down with ads the it’s hard to get through…
7. Comedy Ahead of Our Times - My -year-old introduced me to this. That alone gives me hope for the younger generation. Comedy is a necessity, and every era gets the comedy it needs. We need this all-American blend of Pythonesque absurdity, screaming eldritch horror, and satire so sharp it hardly hurts at all when it gouges your eyes out. If you're old enough, it will remind you of Firesign Theatre or “Bob” and the Cult of the Sub-Genius.
8. Love it but... - I love this podcast it is so interesting and is fun to listen to when I need a break from everything. But it's honestly disappointing the amount of ads there is only really mins of story telling with ads and "weather". I do understand why they need ads but it gets annoying all forced on you in the beginning. I know the creators have better things to do than look at my review but if you do happen to see this please consider moving half the ads to the end thank you goodbye.
9. ALL HAIL THE GLOW CLOUD - I absolutely love this podcast! It's really funny and (insert fake ghost voice) creeeeeeepy.
I like the fake ads in the middle of the podcast that just turn out to be random well known companies! A I WOULD have put , but SO MANY ADS am I right?!?!? Like minutes of ads total ugggggggggg and they're the same Every. Single. Time.... ITS DRIVING ME CRAZYYYYYY! Ok so. Since I'm done ranting, Great job night vale peeps! ( also I know u guys only put out episodes a month, but I blow through them like or a day...(more episodes greatly appreciated) I'm on episode like something... So yes. Um. Possibly if you could put out maybe or episodes a month instead of I would appreciate that more than u guys know. (scroll down for special report) (Intro music) Last night the glow cloud informed us that they are bringing (drum roll please.....) THEIR FAMILY. Shortly following, glowing holes opened up in the ground and many, MANY new glow clouds came from them. (radio fizz) THIS IS A SPECIAL REPORT. THE GLOW CLOUDS HAVE SURROUNDED THE DOG PARK. DO NOT GO INTO THE DOG PARK. THE SHERIFF'S SECRET POLICE WILL TAKE CARE OF THIS ISSUE. THE VAGUE YET MENACING GOVERNMENT AGENCY HAS LED THE GLOW CLOUD INTO THE DPG PARK. THE HOODED FIGURES IN THE DOG PARK NOW HAVE THEIR REQUESTED 'VENDING MACHINES.' ...aLl HaIl tHe GlOw ClOuD... (more radio fizz)
So I was like, yes, duh.. And then I left NIGHTVALE. For like a second.. And in that second, I saw everything. EVERYTHING. Yepppp. ... Yes and now... I give you...
(MUSIC PLS STAND BY)
goodnight nightvale... goodnight... tune in next for an hour that feels like minutes but takes forever...and ever...and I mean it.
10. Boring - People listening to this have too much time on their hands. Cheesy writing, over drawn presentation. Feels like a high school creative English lit assignment. There are definitely better fictional narrative podcasts. I gave this episodes and I want that time back. Tries to be quirky but the “David Lynch meets NPR” angle makes a watered down brew that I can’t stomach. Pompous and dull, a real disappointment. Maybe was something interesting ten years ago but all petered out.
In the mountains of central Appalachia, blood runs as deep as these hollers and just as dark. Since before our kind knew these hills, hearts of unknowable hunger and madness have slumbered beneath them. These are the darkest mountains in the world. How dare we think we can break the skin of a god and dig out its heart without bringing forth blood and darkness? Old Gods of Appalachia is a horror-anthology podcast set in the shadows of an Alternate Appalachia, a place where digging too deep into t...

1. More woke junk. - Deeply, DEEPLY disappointed that yet again a good podcast started going woke. The story teller is truly superior. The story is complex, not overly complex but in the way that makes you pay attention. But the woke-ness.... One again the woke claims another scalp of a great pod cast. The villains- ALL white men. As matter of fact there as very few decent white men at all. Any person who is worthy of holding the hero mantle will be a a woman, or person of color. Episode as much as says if bad things happen in the world they happen to women, people of color or anyone who is not hetro. The simple math of that is, white men are the oppressors and everyone else is the oppressed. More woke trash. It really is a shame this podcast had the makings of being one of the best out there.
2. Nostalgic Voices, Dialects, Music, and Storytelling - I have missed this accent. I can hear my grandparents and great-grandparents in it. The narration is exactly how I’d remember stories being told around the table at night. The stories themselves are just like my mother used to tell when I was growing up. They’re eerie, they’re dark, and there’s something alive behind the story. It has a life of its own, like folklore. It seeps into your skin and bones to have a chat with memories you’d forgotten about. This is an excellent podcast that reminds me of my childhood in the country in the best possible way, and I can’t commend it enough.
3. Incredible storytelling - The lord and character development are top notch. It manages to be horror that is more supernatural than jump-scare-y, which is more my jam. Also, there is complexity and nuance of characters and their situations, which makes them relatable even if their timelines (or powers) aren’t.
4. I am addicted to this excellent storytelling - After finishing The Magnus Archives I despaired of finding another horror podcast as immersive, creative and compelling. Well, I finally found it in Old Gods of Appalachia. This is storytelling at it's absolute finest. I find myself making excuses to go driving in the car or do housework so I slip on three next episode. Download it now!
5. Feels Like Home - Although I was born and raised east of the Appalachia mountains in Virginia by parents not of Appalachia, this show strikes a chord somewhere deep in my bones, resonates in my soul, and feels like coming home. This was my second listen through of Season One and part of Season Two and first listen through of the rest of Season Two and what has been released of Season Three. Season Two wasn’t complete my first listen through and I didn’t listen to all of what had been released of Season Two at the time because I didn’t want it to be over. I am so grateful and happy that I came back and took another listen and am now current. Thank y’all so much for keeping me company and being part of my chosen family.
6. Could’ve Been Good, But… - Virtual Signaling meets the Unbeatable Mary Sues that are the Walker Sisters. Even though these things are imaginably ancient and powerful they’re no match for some mortal women, because WOMYN POWAH! No Walker woman could ever been defeated because they’re so much more intelligent and powerful and wise and wonderful and blah blah blah blah blah. Creepy Pasta nonsense written by people with the writing talent of the average middle school child.
7. Great storytelling, needs volume modulation - I love this podcast. It has great storytelling, creative alt realities, interesting non-linear story lines and it’s creepy without stopping me from sleeping after listening. I love the appropriately spooky music that supports the story. I even supported on Patreon so I really like it. THAT SAID, the volume modulation is horrendous. Especially between the storytelling and musical interludes. I tend to listen in my car and even with speakers surrounding me, I have absolutely crank the volume to hear the story and then hurriedly twist the dial WAY down so I don’t blow an eardrum when the episode begins or ends. It startles my dog awake. This was a problem early on and I kinda thought by season three they’d have some people mention this so they might fix it but NOPE. I really hope this is something that can be fixed for future episodes (and even re-master previous ones??) because it does detract from the listening experience.
8. A story that always leaves wanting more - I have been a fan now for years. I am not going to lie when I first found this pod cast I binged it all in a single day and didn’t sleep till, I heard them all. Cam is amazing story writer and the narrator’s voice is perfect for the that sitting around a camp fire telling tails kind of feeling when he gets started. He makes you feel like you are family and sitting down with him when he is telling you the tails. I, time recommended you give them a listen and get yourself hooked to the tails of the Walker family and the likes, I promise you will not be disappointed.
9. Been looking for something like this! - I fell in love with Appalachian ‘granny magic’ the first time I saw Florence Schauffler as Haggis in ‘Pumpkinhead.’ Since then, I’ve devoured Card’s ‘Seventh Son’ series and am working my way through ‘Outsiders.’ Keep up the great storytelling!
10. Best fiction podcast out there - I absolutely love Old Gods, since episode one. The actors, the writers, the storylines the characters are all exceptional. The Railroad Man being a particular favorite…so creepy and wonderful. And I never skip through either intro songs or the outro song, which I can not say is true for most other podcasts to which I subscribe. But if y’all do anything bad to Melvin Blevins, this Ozarks girl may pick a fight with Appalachia. Love you, family.
11. Almost there - I love this podcast but the volume fluctuations need to be addressed. The beginning g asking for donations is nice and loud but then when the story starts, I have to turn my volume almost all the way up due to how low it is and Heaven help you if the narrator is speaking low because it’s bout dang near impossible to hear. Love the show. Please address the volume.
12. Great show, lots of storylines - I really enjoy Old Gods. I love Americana and I love Lovecraftian horror and I especially love how progressive this show is. I think my only complaint is that because it jumps around so much in different time periods and storylines, it can be easy to forget certain characters or plots when they are brought back. So, this is one you will want to binge.
13. Amazing, chilling, and grossing podcast! - I have tried this show several times, and it took me a little bit to get into it. I’m glad I gave it another shot though as the story has definitely pulled me in. I’m into season two now and the only thing I don’t like about the show is the ads. There’s one episode where there is over six minutes of ads just to get to the story. I would gladly pay a premium to have an ad-free version of Old Gods to listen to. It gets a little jarring when you’re binging and you have to stop and skip forward, and then skip forward again, and then skip backwards because you went forward too far trying to get past the ads. I am a Patreon member, so I do pay monthly and I think it would be amazing if they had an option to have ad-free episodes, if possible. Other than that, the story is amazing, the characters are developed well and the plot seems pretty solid. I love the uneasy feeling you get when you listen to each episode, like you’re not entirely sure what’s going to happen next but you know it’s not going to be good.

1. Top fave, out of audio plays - Super-pro quality, fast paced, hard driving cyber noir.
Better writing than % of the stuff out there, including the big Hollywood audioplays. Production and sound as good as the very best you will hear.
Outstanding performances from a talented cast, whose voices perfectly fit their roles.
Absolutely amazing effort, with extremely rewarding results.
What a show!
2. Unique, Imaginative, Spellbinding - Yeah, THAT Good! - So, I have become a Podcast snob. I havent had too many good experiences with them lately and am frustrated by the content. I search in every possible media platform to find a recommendation of something that finally hits the spot. Well, FINALLY this one came along. I wish I could convey just how good it is. It is a very well-written story, not complicated and yet not dumbed down. The actors are some of the best I've heard to date. They act in such a way that you feel you are standing right next to them through every experience and every challenge. I especially LOVE that the story has the main protagonist speaking through voice-over in that "Film Noir" type, "Private Eye Monologue" style. This Podcast is great! I had taken a break for a while until today and was excited to see that the newest season was completely finished - my guilty pleasure was ready to listen to. You should too!
3. Pilot Review - oh my god, what a production! Immediately you can understand what this universe is like due to great sound designing and acting. The storytelling is flawless as well, as the plot seamlessly switches between a narrative dialogue to an ensemble cast. I see high hopes for Rust and his search for his family and I’m excited to see where it goes next!

1. Really great start! - Really great premise, can’t wait for season . This is off to a great start. I have two peeves about it, ) seriously who doesn’t become concerned when they have to sign page contract and NDA? ) I know Astrid wouldn’t let Way e terminate Wilkers, but it was established he could remove the AI’s abilities. At the very least get him out of the ear wig. But I can overlook Wayne’s lack of forward thinking, he hasn’t gotten much sleep the past few days.
2. Great story. CONSTANT foul language - I made through the first season. Had to stop. Good greif, you’d think the writers could string together two sentences without using the f-word times? The f-word is used in place of adjectives, nouns, verbs, exclamations.. and on and on. The listener has to grit their teeth and focus through all that verbal diarrhea to keep their mind on the storyline. Which… actually… is really good! Interesting. And the characters grow and learn. Which is rare to find in much of today’s entertainment. The music and sound affects are high quality. Its too bad.. I’d love to enjoy the story. But I’m not willing to subject myself to the constant assault of foul language.
3. This is entertaining, suspenseful, and funny - I stumbled on this while looking for a story that would keep my attention….and this was it.
This is novel, suspenseful, and funny.
I ended up binging it in one day
Highly recommended Good job by the writers, producers, and actors! Everyone gets a raise!
4. Awesome! - If you like immersive Sci-Fi then this is for you. Great sound effects that aren’t blasting your ears off, the voice acting is great, and the story line is absolutely captivating! It looks like they release every week or so so you won’t have to wait long for more! Absolutely recommending!
5. Best science fiction podcast - This is the best science-fiction podcast I’ve heard to date I really recommend this to everybody. This is so much like me every time I listen to this I get goosebumps every when a new episode drops I immediately listen to it and I just wish that they are a little bit longer that’s all keep making more please.

1. Fabulous Story! & - I don’t know why it took me so long to find DIRT. I would have thought that this would be towards the top of Fiction Podcasts/Audio Dramas. It’s amazing that someone can dream up these fantastic stories. These Characters are truly characters. Carl! Hilarious. I also love Chris’s VOICE. I could listen to him all day long I just started Season after having my own Binge-a-thon of S & . If you haven’t listened yet, you are in for a treat. &
2. Has potential - I’m trying to like it, but the characters are unconvincing. The voice acting is stilted and dialogue is awkward. The story line isn’t terrible, but the acting is preventing me from being immersed in mystery. As others have said, it could do with a bit less whining about the difficulties of being rich. It’s hard to suspend one’s disbelief for such an unlikable main character
3. Excellent audio drama, can’t wait for more! - Dirt is such an engaging listen. I went through season and in a about a week to days, and had to pace myself, otherwise I’d have binged it a or days.
The quality of the audio is fantastic, as are the sound effects - not too much, but plenty to really set a scene, and very good voice acting from the cast.
The story is strong but also subtle if that makes sense, it doesn’t rely on anything over the top to keep you interested. I am looking forward to the next season.
4. Boring and arrogant - There may be a decent story here, however it seems so hidden. Listening to the arrogant “celebrity” CEO navigate boring meetings responding to his texts and meandering through his life is not entertaining for a podcast. Yes, I am sure everyone would stop this bore for selfies, honestly this is heading into maybe a new genre…business fantasy. Ugh!
5. Exciting, engaging story. High quality production - I binged both seasons of this podcast over the weekend and I love it so much! I can’t wait to see where the story goes next. I listen to a lot of audio dramas and this is one of the best quality ones I’ve listened to in a long time. I highly recommend it!
6. A great story very well told! - This is a compelling tale, made even more so by the narrator’s style and ability to draw in the listener. He has a deft touch with character development, and allows the story to unwind with just the right pace and drama. I need to know what happens to these characters! Really great stuff . . . you’ll want to binge-listen, just like I did.
7. My first podcasts couldn’t be better! - Wow! What an introduction into podcasts. A story that grabs you from the very beginning and continues to lure me into listen more. I am longingly waiting for the next set of chapters! So well done on all levels. Keep it up. I have shared and will continue to do so!
8. Loving the story so far! Can’t wait for more episodes. - Loving the story so far. The mystery of this letter and this family is both intriguing and melancholy. Speaks of home, love, roots and life journey. Can’t wait to hear more and to see where this path leads for Joseph. Love the setting, as well as the voice of the lead character.

1. Good but……. - So the story is good, I’m enjoying it. BUT, the actors sound like they are just reading a bunch of dialogue. The episodes are too short. The beginning of each episode contains numerous ads…. minutes to be exact and the end of every episode is a lengthy recitation of every human being involved in the production….EVERY episode. This lasts up to minutes. Why don’t you recite the list of people ONCE at the beginning of the series and ONCE at the end. It is totally unnecessary to do this on every episode. The episodes could be longer.
2. I love this podcast - Like many others I found the acting pretty painful in the beginning. But it gets better, and you get used to the style. And after a while I grew to really love the characters and the story. Now I’m listening to the whole thing a second time. It’s not perfect but it has heart. And I’m looking forward to new episodes!
3. I just…what? - I made it through or episodes of WRETCHED voice acting and poorly written dialogue to get to
One of the worst written premises ever; it jumped the shark before even fully developing the story. I thought I was spoiled or ruined with high standards after Wolf amd We’re Alive; nope. Other reviewers have confirmed how terrible it is.
4. Land the plane - How is this podcast still a thing I tried it back in ye olde pandemic, and for reasons other reviews say (the horrid music that is half the episode, the voice acting so bad it’s actually distracting, etc.), I couldn’t. I REALLY tried. Made it seasons..thought that was the end lol Check out Wolf or We’re Alive for immersive fiction with solid voice acting. So glad I found those. It was the escapism I was looking for. It irks me this one keeps popping up as a recommendation, hence the review.
5. Ummm - The voice acting is so so bad i’m struggling to get through the st episode. All are bad but the lady is the worst, her cadence is terrible, she’s clearly just reading lines and has no acting ability. Another review said it gets better in season . So I might just skip season . Will update if it’s any better.
6. I can’t… - I really wanted to. The premise seems really cool…but this voice acting. Good lord. It’s some of the worst I’ve ever heard in my life. Siri has more expression and emotion. There are asteroids ripping a city apart and killing tens of thousands, and these people are just sitting there reading a script like robots. I’m far from a voice actor and I couldn’t be this bland if I tried.
7. Rough start, but turns phenomenal - I read the description and the story sounded pretty good so I started listening. The voice acting was dreadful. However, the storyline was so good I kept listening. By the second season the acting was MUCH better. Finishing season now, I HIGHLY recommend this podcast. It has come such a long way and the relationships and friendships are so beautiful
8. Flat acting and short episodes - The plot is good but the voice actors don't seem to know how to do anything but read off their script. It's like listening to a slow classmate read a paragraph. The script isn't great either. It's good if you have time to kill and can come back to your audio player every - minutes... and if you don't mind really flat line delivery.
9. I’m hooked! - I stumbled across this podcast while waiting for my favorite one We’re Alive returns with a new episode. I’m so glad I did! Luckily for me I found this years after the first episode so that I can binge through episodes on my commute to work. Now I have two favorites! I’m so addicted, I want to keep listening more and more but forcing myself to only listen on my commutes. Check it out, you’ll love it!
10. Reading from a script - I was really hoping I would like this one. Finding a good audio story podcast is hard. Unfortunately, this wasn’t a good selection. Every actor sounds like they are reading from a script - which obviously they probably are but they don’t portray proper inflection, pitch, energy, etc. to make the characters sound natural. Sure, the show came out in and has probably gotten better since, but I don’t have time to listen to that many episodes to find out. Besides, voice acting in general was the same in as now. The actors definitely needed more script reads before recording.
11. Inconvenient Listen - Let me start by saying I think this is a pretty good story but to hard to listen to. I knew the Ava character but dread her voice acting. Sounds as if she's reading a paper. I also think the music segways are way too long and really unnecessary. I FF through all of them; which made this an inconvenient listen. Also the shows were way too short. FF thru the music, ads, & credits they're barely min. Glad all episodes were out. Had I had to wait for them I would've abandoned this podcast quickly. Honestly I am almost did, but as I stated the story was pretty good.
12. Apocalypse, alien invaders, road trip and love story. - New take on apocalypse and invasion by space aliens combined with road trip across all of America and a love story (or rather triangle). Strong and believable female characters, including some of the leads. Some LGBT characters. Interesting combination of first-person inner thoughts vs full cast dialogue. Several stories that intersect. Sound scape is incredible - you feel like you are really in the various locations- refugee camp, on the road, in the forest, desert, even in gun battles. Characters are believable and sympathetic. Some glitches in the science. After the internet goes down, no-one is able to communicate for a very long time, as if short-wave and radio do not exist. Not sure they understand EMP - which seems to take out batteries (but only car batteries, not say flashlight ones), instead of electronics, but this is minor and they seem to have a better handle on natural sciences. (Note - batteries operate on chemical reactions so a burst of electro- magnetic pulse shouldn't affect them, whereas electronics have lots of tiny metal connections that fry with high energy pulses). But their forte is really good story-telling. A couple of scenes and one episode where Ava seems to be reading a script. Perhaps poor editing? Or something. And the ads annoyingly jack up the volume, and repeat again and again- so I've become adept at skipping them. They manage to run five seasons and still have enough plot twists to keep you on the edge of your seat. Looking forward to next episode and also other podcasts by this group. Send them some money.
13. Binging - Would have made me crazy if I had to wait a week for. min show. Ava as a voice actress is rather flat. Jay, on the other hand, nails the whinging character he portrays. And please stop saying “Cali”. No one and I mean no one has ever called California “Cali”. (CA born and bred, rd generation so yes I do know) Spoiler alert: The episode when Mark dies is the best one. Had me in tears. He was so devoted to the ungrateful entitled Eva
Something has been found at the bottom of Earth's ocean. An ancient artifact that can only be described as a giant door, inset into the sea floor. It becomes known as the Vault. A gigantic enigma, buried and forgotten...nineteen thousand feet down. To study the artifact, the galaxy's most powerful corporation, Maas-Dorian, has built a massive, self-contained, secret laboratory base surrounding it, named FATHOM. It's objective: unlock the secrets of the artifact and discover what it holds.But ...

1. Fathom is the best audio fiction I've ever heard - Fathom (prequel to Derelict) was an absolute pleasure. The story and voice acting were great, but it was the sound design that absolutely blew me away. It made it feel like I was there. This whole podcast was so good, I've listened to it multiple times. If you like scifi and audio drama, you should too.
2. Consuming - Everything is superb: story, sound production (exception below), voice acting. As everyone has said, it is loud, which might work in a visual medium where you’re using multiple senses, but here, it’s overwhelming to the ears and at times, unintelligible. Also, the story is dense (not necessarily bad, you just need to pay attention). This is not a casual listen, and I wish the episodes were in shorter chunks. All in all, this is a top tier scripted podcast. I hope they are able to be funded for season .
3. Good Hard Action Sci Fi - This podcast is fantastic. Making heavy use of thematic world building through natural character dialogue, visceral descriptions make the story come to life, while avoiding heavy handed scenery descriptions (as some audio dramas are prone). The pacing also shines, with the overarching story steadily ramping up, but not in a linear fashion; instead, it feels like a climb up massive steps, where you’re with the characters, both for the action and for their brief moments of rest before the next hurdle. As an engineer, I really appreciate the hard sci-fi elements. The technology in the story is plausible, giving off Aliens and Half Life vibes, being futuristic while understandable. What brings these elements to life is the soundscape - everything sounds like it should. Finally, like all good sci fi, the story explores deep philosophical questions, incorporating discussions from different viewpoints on life, death, humanity, right, and wrong. TLDR: Character driven plot with great dialogue and action, combined with the best soundscaping of any podcast I’ve listened to.
4. Immaculate - WOW episode was insane, I can’t wait to listen to what comes next. This podcast sounds so real I’ve had to pause it to calm myself down. It’s so immersive. I totally felt like I was there for every step of the ride. The tension and the weight of the situation, the character motivations, every aspect of this podcast feels like it was designed to catch your attention and not let go. Thanks for this absolute experience!!!!
edit /: SEASON YAYYYYY
5. Just listen! - I have to say this is one of the best story podcasts I’ve listened to. The audio is fantastic. The footsteps aren’t weird as seems to happen a lot. The voice acting is superb, and the story is quite attention grabbing. Hands down my favorite and I have a lot of alone time at work I like to turn into creepfest with my earbuds.
6. Excellent - Science fiction in film is usually all about the “visuals,” often leaving the script to be shallow and gutted. In the podcast medium, this DERELICT: FATHOM experience is an extremely well-written and immersive story that is only equaled or exceeded by the talent of the actors. The characters are brought to life because of the script and the fantastic acting, as there are no visuals - other than the world built in your mind’s eye as you listen. QCode introduced me to immersive fiction podcasts. But DERELICT: FATHOM takes it a few steps further by not only being committed to telling a good immersive story, but by also committing this world to you. This feels like the beginning of something much larger - in all aspects. Once you open this door, there is no going back.
7. Great story and acting, horrific sound design (misophonia) - For some reason they want us to believe there’s a world with scentient AI but the comms quality has constant crackles and squeaks. When asking themselves “is this sound high pitched enough? Does it go on for long enough?” The answer seems to have always been “HIGHER AND LONGER!!!”. That being said, the story was compelling enough for me to power through, even though I had to skip large chunks due to unnecessarily grating sound design. I suspect they did it to build tension, but it’s just headache infusing.
8. Amazing - This has to be the most amazing podcast on apple podcast, I’ve already listened to first season over x and can’t wait for season I can’t stop listening going to listen to the whole thing again today! Thank you for such an amazing experience and hope you guys get to continue making such wonderful stories!
9. Love this show - This is such a great podcast, I am the type of person that prefers to read. But this show captivates me and keeps me wanting to listen for more. Incredible team with incredible talent. Thank you for sharing your art. I would have given you five stars if the app allowed it. You guys are awesome!!
10. One of the Best - This is one of the best story podcasts with professional quality voice acting and sound. What makes it so good, however, is that almost all the character actions and choices are well rooted in character motivations and/or character flaws. This is unlike many other podcasts that have characters make inexplicably dumb choices just because the writer needed to get from one plot movement to the next. Here, characters are consistently drawn and developed, which makes the thrilling tensions of the story and the competing agendas of characters feel more organic and compelling. I hope there’s a season two.
11. Great story, bad sound - Great voice acting (when you can hear it), great story, but the sound suuucked. The dialog kept getting drowned out by the sound effects and made for a frustrating listening experience. Still the story, from what I could here of it was very interesting. Hope there’s a season and they learn how to better balance the dialog with the sound effects.
12. Will you wait on the platform with me? - But I’m going to try my best. This series has been absolutely beyond incredible. I listen to it at work while I’m cooking and I can’t tell you how many times I’ve become so absorbed in the story that I was completely and totally transported to the scene. I think about this story even when I’m not listening to any episodes. It’s that good. For the finale, there was mention that some generous benefactor donated funds to complete the last half of the season. I don’t remember there being a jump in production quality (not saying it’s not there, but im just a chef. That’s way above my head) but in the first minutes of the finale, there’s a whole lot of improvement in the voice acting alone. Seriously, holy cow. Well done!! I’ve been an avid sci-fi and fantasy literature consumer since i was and this story is one of the most intriguing and absorbing stories I’ve read. I would put it in the same category as Dune and Lord of the Rings. Seriously! Give it a listen, you won’t be disappointed. Edit:: When i said i didn’t notice an improvement in production, i don’t mean that it’s low quality. The opposite! The production is of such high quality that to my ears, it couldn’t get better. Aside from more episodes of course!
13. Astonishing - I am absolutely floored over this podcast. The production quality, voice acting, and story are unmatched. The character and plot development keep you on the edge of your seat. Waiting for them to release the episodes was borderline torture, but I am excited to go back and re-listen all the way through. Please listen to this podcast, it deserves it.

1. Riveting - The actor voicing the protagonist is very talented. With some other podcasts, I often find myself tuning out and forgetting to pay attention, so I end up rewinding and listening to the same section over and over. It seems to happen when there’s a lull in the plot tension and/or the voice actor isn’t drawing my attention very well. Neither of those things are happening in this story. The story is quickly paced and eventful, and the voice acting is superb.
2. Extremely well done! - Found this pod cast on Reddit and decided to give it a try. Blew through all of season one in two days. Loved it! The production values are top-notch, the story is engrossing, the voice actor(s) are believable (no wooden acting here!), and the story gives you just enough information about his past/present to feel invested. LOVE THIS!
3. Voyage into the Cosmos of one’s self… - Your team is Masterful. The way in which you captivate your audience through voice a gift. This was how it was to listen to old radio shows. Owen’s personal journey through his life is as equally transcendent as his physical journey through the cosmos. I am a fan for life! A true MasterClass into scripted podcasting!
4. Finally A True Sci-Fi Podcast W/ EVERYTHING! - I have gone through so many podcasts that were supposedly great. I’ve been very disappointed & even embarrassed at some of the voice acting. But this one, this is surpassing all my expectations of what it should be! My only disappointment was after binging it, I came to the final episode that was available-I have to wait like everyone else for eps -. But that’s not really disappointed, it’s just something to look forward to.
5. Compelling and unpredictable. - Us sci-fi geeks are used to wading through big swamps of mediocrity, amiright? Celeritas, however, is anything but. Sophisticated storylines that don’t insult your intelligence and challenge you to figure out what’s not being said. Solid science: no shortcuts and no “magic tech” swooping in to save the day. Great production values! Genuinely unpredictable plot twists and “whaaaaa????” moments. Great stuff.
6. Needed Good Hard Sci-Fi Recently - Celeritas Delivers - I was looking for something to take me mentally away on a trip recently and a friend recommended this podcast that just started. Following the personal story of Captain Keating and the voice actor that plays them really sucked me in. Looking forward to each new episode.
7. Love this super space odyssey podcast! - I am HOOKED! Great writing, compelling voice acting, and a highly engaging storyline. While outside my typical genre, I’m grateful I decided to be bold because I can’t get enough of this! Hurry up and post the next episodes because this is THRILLING and I want more!

Release date: 2021-07-13
1. If you love falling down a rabbit hole, TANIS is for you - I have been searching for a while for a good book or something that sent me spiraling into questions and a need to know more. I very recently stumbled into this and thought, eh, I’ll give it a try, and this is exactly what I wanted. I usually spend a day to binge a season, then take some time to go down the rabbit hole looking up references from the show before I go to the next season. Intriguing, interesting and different
2. Well see - Comes off as super cringy at times. I want to listen and it sounds interesting, but the acting comes off weird at times. The MK character…. Not really sure if it’s the delivery or the actual writing but it comes off terrible, is she the bad guy? She just comes off as so cocky and arrogant it’s tough to listen to. At times I feel like they’re using her to explain something, but she uses these belittling quips/answers that don’t really flow great and just turns me off. Stories interesting tho, I’ll keep chugging along
3. Well that sounds…….. like it drags on - The negative reviews on here are percent accurate. Except for MK and Jeff, the voice acting is dull, the main character, Nick, really does repeat everything that someone tells him and loves to use a phrase “well that sounds (add adjective here) whenever someone gives him a bit of information. Season was good, it got me hooked but after seasons it felt like this story was going losing direction and would drag on. Season confirmed that. I gave up after that.
4. Cool idea, cool universe, mediocre ending - Good podcast. The ending is pretty bad, though, honestly. There’s a world of difference between ‘an ambiguous ending’ and ‘we couldn’t think of an actual ending.’ The first season understood that a lot better than the second. Also MK is kind of insufferable. She feels like a caricature of a s ‘cool girl’ and just constantly acts wildly irrational in an attempt to make her sound more logical.
5. HUrRY back Nic! - Nic, you disappeared. Where are you? What happened? I am still wondering who Kali is (you know that is the name of a fierce dirty in Hindu mythology-Kali The Destroyer...who is your Kali???) Where is Rose? Merecatnip? What did you do when Nic disappeared at the stone? And...oh god...SO many questions. Maybe you are quietly seeking recruits, so here's my own personal pitch:
Name: Jennifer B
Seeking Tanis. Runner available.
Don't hesitate to reach out, or...give us another season soon so we can transcend from this plane to our beloved Tanis.
6. Great concept, awful writing and acting - Basically Every Episode: "I found something" "Oh?" "Yeah, you're gonna want to know what it is." pause "What is it?" pause "Tesla Nova." "...what about Tesla Nova?" pause "It's not them." "No?" "No." pause "Who is it?" "I don't have much time. It's coming." nothing happens FIN. If this were a movie or tv show it would be a late night low-budget SyFy special meant to fill out the -am slot. The concept and attention to detail is GREAT but the writing and voice acting is absolutely mind numbing. I've kept up through the second season but I can't keep going anymore, it's literally like pulling teeth out of a plot line. Land the plane, guys. Nick Silver's utter lack of emotive response in even the most dire situations makes everything feel benign, Cameron Ellis pretty much has the charm of an automated phone menu, and MK is the only actor who actually adds some personality to the show, though she's often held back by the poor dialogue and obnoxious pacing. GUYS. Dragging a minute conversation by its bleeding fingernails for . Dang. Minutes. is NOT intrigue!! It’s just bad writing. Update: Oh God it got worse. Two more seasons have been released since I wrote my last review and I actually removed my second star. I sped through the first two seasons to get caught up and then tried to make it through season . Couldn’t finish. For everyone rating this stars I genuinely can’t fathom your low bar. There are great fiction podcasts out there, this isn’t one of them y’all.
7. Excellent, high quality & totally binge worthy! - I found this early in the pandemic and was hooked from Ep , first season! I can’t speak to the later seasons, but I’m sure their just as good. Ignore the “complainy” reviews, and give it a listen. I’m not a fan of the radio show format, but this one sucked me in. Before the spoilers, I started listening because I thought it was “true story”. Very intriguing story non the less!
8. Pretty good show with lots of unanswered questions. - Essentially, you’re looking at an old fashioned cosmic hour mystery radio hour in which local radio personality tries to solve the mystery of the week despite being the most gullible man that ever lived. Through the power of friendship, and all of his friends are smarter than them, combined with good guy triumphs over evil storytelling themes the main character succeeds.
9. Great concept with frustrating dialogue - I just finished season and I’ve enjoyed Tanis for the most part so far. The story is interesting and there have been some good twists and turns this far. However, I get a little frustrated by the dialogue at times, especially characters’ tendencies to say another characters name if that character doesn’t respond to a question in . seconds. This happens multiple times in every episode and the therapy sessions are especially cringey because of it. This isn’t unique to a particular character or to Tanis, as it’s common in Rabbits, as well. One other complaint is characters doing extreme things for almost no reason at all. For example, one character pretends to be someone else, but has no real reason for doing so. They’re only pretending to be them in name and haven’t changed anything else about their identity, and they don’t have a solid rationale for doing so. I wish that some twists weren’t there for just shock value. It makes the buildup extremely disappointing.
10. Pretty good show - This show is a pretty good one to listen to after listening to rabbits. I can see how some elements from the first season of Tanis are incorporated into the second of rabbits and I would not be surprised if the two are linked. I haven’t made it to season five yet but I will steadily get there. I read the rabbits book as well, so if we are looking at what I think we are… I will take the road less traveled by.
11. Stuck in Tanis like I’m in the right world - Plowed through rabbits plowed through Tannis working on the last movie and my God I applaud you guys for the television that my ears needed. Oh and i totally ordered path cards nerd
usually im a book reader or I listen to a book on audible but being shown the PRN podcast series that you guys do has been absolutely just life-changing for me. Keep it up! I listen to it on my way to campus I listen to it while I’m painting I listen to it while I’m Instakarting. I just appreciate you guys for making this a real thing bringing the past (tv on the radio) back here into the future because we all know video DID kill the radio star
12. Disrespectful and in poor taste - I listened to the first two episodes and was intrigued by the premise. Then i got to episode and they used the real-life death of Elisa Lam as a plot point. She was an actual person who tragically died less than a decade ago. “Explaining” her death using a fictional conspiracy theory is in such poor taste.
13. Amazing piece of art - This podcast is really a work of art. I started listening to Season on a whim when looking for something to listen to on road trip. I ended up listening to all the seasons across South Dakota, Minnesota, Michigan UP, Wisconsin and just finished Season through Illinois and Missouri. I can not wait to see where this goes. The voice acting is superb and the twists and turns are fantastic. You will not regret giving this a chance.
When a sheltered young woman, Catherine, finally moves away from home for college, she begins to investigate her family to finally get at the answers behind her father’s mysterious death, possibly connected to her mother, Barbara, who controls one of the largest trusts in the country and is an extreme narcissist. In the process, she discovers repressed memories... that may be someone else’s memories. A new audio drama from Voyage Media, I Am Echo can be compared to a YA Succession with a sci...

1. Great - this is so good I love that you are making more episodes and keep it up and I’ll keep listening and many others will too and pacific your voice is great like a angel and this the best podcast ever and don’t give a eff about anyone who talks you down because remember ypur the best podcaster ever.
2. Always great! Long time listener - This has been one of the podcast that I listen to the most consistently over the years. I always come back to great new episodes and super high-quality Contin. The recurring voice actors have become familiar and a source of great comfort despite the subject material. :) Thanks for doing the work you do bringing SCP to life for us all.
3. Shut…the eff…up - I couldn’t remember why I stopped listening to this after a year or so, so I picked it back up.
Ah. I remember. Pacific’s voice makes me want to hurt people. And he DOESN’T SHUT UP. “Not much to talk about this week, so we’re going to make this quick” five minutes later the show finally starts. Then five minutes of him doing rambling ads in the middle (if I were better help or hello fresh, I’d want my money back. He sounds like a middle schooler asked to do an extemporaneous speech). Then another five minutes at the end blathering on about everyone who’s ever so much as glanced at their pattern page…often pronouncing their names painfully wrong. He’s just sooooooo horrible.
4. Best use of audio story-telling! - I have to admit, listening to this podcast makes me more afraid than classic horror movies. (Sorry Chucky) First, the voice acting! Oh my god the voice acting. Being an amateur voice actor myself, I learned the importance of not just reading a script, but how to act while reading a script. Listening to everyone just makes these stories so convincing! I never thought I would find better than just creepypasta stories. Second, audio effects. Ok, so quick story, I was hospitalized for most of and I was usually awake at night in my hospital bed trying to distract myself listening to podcasts. The sound mixing is just amazing! Closing my eyes made me feel like I was experiencing the story in reality. (Scared me most of the time to the point I needed to tell the nurses to leave the lights on.) To summarize, just amazing people making an amazing show that has shown me new interests in audio drama. Pacific, you are wonderful and everyone else I think are just chef’s kiss. I think the main reason I love this podcast and others like it is because we ‘the listeners’ cannot see what’s happening, but only hear it and make up the visuals in our mind, which only we can see what are greatest fear looks like.
5. Amazing show, Needs more scps. - Favourite scp podcast. Best of the best. Try not to do the joke scp like among us or the Minecraft one. Do those when you cant find anything else. I dont think you have done scp and scp please correct me if i am wrong. Add some of the s (there are a lot) (sorry about my name i made it years ago and i dont know how to change it) and i seen that multiple people talking about how the voice acting voice and the narrator voice volume are unbalanced.
6. Please fix the sound - I’m with Katilee’s review. The podcast is great. The acting is great. The chosen SCPs are great. But the issues with the audio equalization make it impossible to listen to. I hate to leave such a low review, but I’m hoping it means someone will see this and do something about the audio quality. I want to listen to the show. I can’t because I can barely hear its host or parts of the story and then I’m suddenly being blasted in the ear by an ad already too loud for a show that doesn’t have audio issues. It’s physically painful. I’m just not willing to do that to my ears. Sorry, y’all.
7. Loved it until new creative team/musician - Finished season (loved it and all before it) and just started listening to the shows by the new creative team. I have at least huge problem with season so far - the music. It’s annoyingly in the way. I get they got a new musician and they want to showcase that but less is more. That and the music is pretty annoying/distracting. Maybe lower it - a lot - so it’s not vying for your attention while the SCP is introduced.
8. Inconsistent updating. - Have been rather inconsistent with their episode releases lately. They say that they release new episodes every week. However, they have been failing to release the episodes every week as they claimed. Now it feels like they are releasing the episodes once every two weeks. The cast and crew of SCP Archives are great, and almost never fail to pleas. Just lately I feel like their neglecting their release schedule. So to conclude this is a great podcast. Just don’t expect it to have a consistent release schedule.
9. Control but in podcast form - I love the game “Control”. I was so excited to finally find a podcast that had the same concept of creep objects and what mysterious things they do. I completely forgot to subscribe and would routinely try to find for months. Finally I figured out the keywords and I couldn’t be happier. I hope whoever reads this podcast sinks it’s hooks into and never lets go. Just like it has me. Side note: I see some commenters are upset about a political statement made on this podcast. Spoiler alert, it’s about women’s autonomy over their body. If you have a problem with that, you’re the problem.
10. Good, but IS a bit political. - Listen, the right to murder your baby isn’t a “basic human right”, so stop playing that Roe vs. Wade decision thing, but otherwise, it’s a pretty good podcast. Can you maybe do one from the GOC’s point of view? Too many people hate them, and I want people to see how they look at things.
11. KEEP POLITICS AT HOME NOT HERE - I have been a long time listener of SCP and have not missed an single episode, but sadly after this last episode it will be my last when I tuned in I was subjected to a political statement that has no place here, this is a horror podcast so Please leave the politics and your personal opinions at home. I was also hit with the same message on insidious inspirations which I will no longer be subscribing too. I know my one lost subscription does not amount to anything but I still feel that politics have no place here and you should keep them out of this.
12. Secure, Contain, Protect - Very creative stories and storytelling. As with all podcasts some episodes are outstanding while some others could be skipped and the rest fall into personal taste categories. Recently, I’ve enjoyed the horror podcast with the extended episodes Serapis present day back. Listen in order. I hope there’s a part to the current story but it seems wrapped up. If horror storytelling is one of your interests, I suggest you give this podcast with talented voice actors and well written stories and dialogue a try.
13. A fun show - I came to SCP from recommendations on various Delta Green table top RPG groups. This is very DG, if you’re into that game. The SCP narrative arcs are great, and the writing is generally good. The acting, however, is uneven. Some actors are very convincing; others seems like they’re reading a script, and often struggling a bit. This can occasionally undermine the atmospheric element of a horror story. Nevertheless, a good show.

1. Uno de mis favoritos - Lo siento pero los Horror cast son lo máximo!! Amo al Sr. Eduardo Liñan se me hace que es súper inteligente además que escribe increíble y me encantaría platicar con el un día por horas, aparte que por su voz se me hace muy atractivo!! Aunque nunca lo he visto… Me encantaría que hiciera un libro con todas sus historias , o mejor dicho varios libros ya que tiene “hartas” experiencias y todo lo que ha escrito. Gracias por esos súper horror cast me encantan! Gracias a todos por su tiempo invertido para regalarnos estos incomparables relatos.
Dios los cuide y los bendiga mucho. —————————————
La voz de Luis Ávila (lAguna vez escuché que dijo que su nombre era Antonio por eso lo cambié…) pone misterio a los relatos, desde la primera vez que lo encontré hace unos meses, me volví adicta a las historias que presentan. Gracias también a los otros colaboradores que escriben los relatos para deleitar nuestros oídos. Gracias por el tiempo invertido en hacer este buen proyecto. No lo dejen y sigan escribiendo los relatos.
2. Mi número Uno - Este podcast se ha convertido en mi obsesión. Desde que lo encontré, no he podido dejar de escucharlo. Vivo lejos de casa y aunque personalmente nunca he experimentando algo paranormal o sobrenatural siento que las historias me acercan a mi país, además de que me han hecho descubrir un mundo totalmente desconocido. Creo que las voces y cómo las historias son narradas son parte fundamental de este programa. Te transportan y te hacen vivir las experiencias. Me encanta! Muchas felicidades por el excelente trabajo y mil gracias.
3. Narrador de Historias de Terror necesita dejar el mismo canto - La narración de Radio Macabra es buena. Pero no soporto ya la de Historias De Terror, las historias en sí son muy buenas, pero el tipo hace siempre el mismo canto. Cada oración y frase empieza con la misma melodía y termina con la misma cantadita !Es irritante! En especial una vez que te das cuenta del patrón tan obvio que utiliza. Por favor, narrador de Historias De Terror, deja de aplicar la misma melodía a cada una de tus oraciones, la entonación de una narración no puede ser monótona. Pausa un poco por ratos, acelera en otros, cambia de nota musical, pon la voz un poco más aguda en ratos, y un pelo más gruesa en otros.
4. Me encanta !!!! - Por casualidad encontré este podcast y quede enamorada, ademas me encontré con un paisanooo de Tampico ...es super ,oir los relatos de mi cuidad y transportarme alos sitios q mencionan... ya que vivo en USA desde hace años .
Que venga mucho éxito para utds, hacen un trabajo excepcional!!! Felicidadess

1. Too much talking - I understand you need to paint a picture but OMG the narration gets so boring and long winded that I lost interest. You can skip a couple of episodes(like I did) and get caught up with the minute update before each episode. I enjoy the plot the characters but gets boring at times.
2. Kind of…meh - These people talk too much. The main story is OK but everyone says way too much as the writer is trying to explain rules of their world. Also…a Viking in the year something has a couch when the first sofa was likely invented around ? There are a few things that pop up that are jarring my wrong and kind of take you out of the story.
3. Wish I found it sooner/Glad I didn’t. - This is an awesomely done podcast. Not just a single voice narrator, but fully immersive. It is very hard to find a fictional podcast that doesn’t just immediately go with the “White American men are the devil” trope to drive the plot, and the protagonist is just a normal acting human that happens to be female. As opposed to an uber to icky male acting female. Can’t begin to explain how refreshing that is.
4. THE PODCAST TO END ALL PODCASTS - Christoph is an absolute genius! This Podcast is by far the best in audio quality, storytelling,, narration, acting, character development and many other categories. Every other fictional podcast is measured by the greatness of LC in my humble opinion! This is my rd listen. I’m so excited about the Rapscallion story
5. Mildly entertaining often boarders on annoying - The premise of the show, as well as the music and voice acting, is very good. My main complaint is the lengthy and needles exposition. Nobody needs a second explanation about every broken piece of a machine. It ends up feeling like technical filler more than interesting storytelling. These expositions are so long that they prevent one from connecting to the characters.
6. Exciting and Adventurous. Highly Recommended - This show is the reason I went from barely being able to run a mile, to running four to five miles. I would just pop my earphones in and forget about everything except what I’m listening to. SO good. I’m listening to it a second time. I started listening in .
7. Looking Forward - The Leviathan Chronicles was the first podcast I ever listened to, ever, back in . I realized later on that not all podcasts are created equal, and that there were other podcasts that were not audio dramas. Unfortunately, for other podcasts, I measured every other audio drama by the standard set by Christof has rarely been matched, and even then, only recently with Covid shifting money from movies into audio dramas. If you enjoy sci-fi, high production quality content, immersive storytelling, and a show you cannot believe you get to consume for free, then The Leviathan Chronicles is for you. I remembered when tragedy nearly derailed Christof’s passion, and I was inspired and moved when he was able to return to finish his story. Now to know that he is continuing his story with spin-offs has brought a light back into my life. I am looking forward to the spin-offs like I have never been for any other podcast, except for the completion of the main story. Thank you, Christof for bringing us back into this world. And I am so very proud of you and happy that you have not given up on your passion, your calling, for putting out the gold standard of audio dramas.
8. THRILLING!! CAPTIVATING!! BINGE WORTHY!! - If you haven't started listening to this podcast, you're missing out. Everything from the voice acting to the storyline is . I'm honestly hoping for a TV-adaption sometime in the future (with the proper budget to bring this expansive world to life...like a starstone budget ). I'm just finishing season but can't wait to see what's in store for the upcoming seasons!
9. Holy wow it’s bad - The first episode was awesome, and then the main character comes in and it slowly goes down hill. I’m on episode and I have no idea why I keep listening. By episode or or something they just explain a bunch of stuff and it loses a lot of sense of mystery. I love sci-fi, I love everything to do with the ocean and deep sea mysteries, but this is trope after trope after trope. The exposition is face melting. The writing is off the wall ridiculous. I have said “What?! Why?! No. Done” so many times but my commute is hella long and I’m a masochist. So here we are.
10. Wow just wow - I have become a fan of audible books in the last year and having gotten a yen for something different decided to try out podcast stories. I have tried a few different ones and wasn’t very impressed when I stumbled onto this one. The Leviathan Chronicles are very well written and performed. I can’t think of any reason why anyone wouldn’t try this podcast, it’s very good.
11. Mixed Bag - Proceed with Caution - Ok. Lots of thoughts on this one. First of all, it takes about episodes for it to actually get good. Mccellen is a very annoying character in the first season. However, when she is recast and played by a new actress in the second season, she gets a lot better. So, if you are on episode and thinking, “why did this get so many good reviews???”, it does get better in season two. In fact, it gets a lot better, especially when two captivating love stories begin to unfurl. HOWEVER, season three ends with MANY loose ends. The worst part about this is that the ends were intentionally left loose. The “epilogue” is available for purchase for $ on their website It honestly feels like the series isn’t even over, which after seasons of crazy drama is very frustrating. The story never really finishes. There are no plans to continue the series, and so to just have the story abruptly end with no explanation… honestly I kind of wish I hadn’t listed to the whole thing. The only thing worse than not reading is reading a story with an unfinished ending. So sad!
12. Addendum: NO WAY MY original Title: Excellent Stories, Characters and Well Acted - But, my new Title is that I am HIGHLY upset, I cant even write anymore I am going to be haunted by this for quite some time. I just do not know WHY anyone would take such an amazing story and screw it up by making the Antagonists highly stupid, unable to make any decison that is good; yet, the Antagonists are making decisons that work, succeed and help them to finally, ultimately WIN. WHY?? WHy would you write it so helpless, so extremely dismal. We live in a time when those kinds of endings are not what is good for anyone to listen to. I LOVED this podcast and them it took a horrible turn. I kept getting more frustrated and more frustrated at the obvious BAD decisons that were happening one after another until one after another continued to just go on and on and on with not ONE that worked. NO No more. I do not listen to these podcasts to only have horrible endings..I dont mind unique and even those with a sliver of hope in the end. But, these seasons have become so dumb. Unbeleiavable. Anton says: No Mcallen, they launched it we need to do something. She says: No dont worry about that I need to get you out of here. SO why in the heck would she just dismiss the ONLY reason they were there to at least TRY to do something!! I cant beleive this, no. WHY??OH so you think Im being negative? Well, when you finish it then let me know how the end is...dismal, failure, death,

1. Perfection - After listening to literally every single episode of this podcast, I really wish there was more. This podcast has such a good story and evolves so much as you go along. I couldn’t have asked for a better audio drama to enjoy while I work and go on trips. If anyone is looking for entertainment, I highly recommend this podcast. Thank you Wolf team, for this entire show, and I hope your lives are well.
2. Vacuum the apt - I agree with Sharkie’s review. A bit too upbeat and silly at first, but I wasn’t going to stop vacuuming to find a new podcast..
Point being, a mere sq. ft. later, the tone had completely shifted to a fast-paced I HAVE TO KNOW WHAT HAPPENS near-future drama with characters I felt like I’d known forever. A sound mixing. No volume adjust needed. LOVE the nod to “Canaveral.” Perfect villain(s) and villainous voice acting..it’s almost like you know…
I wish that voice actor would read all my work texts Much love from the original space coast USA Challenger forever
3. Didn’t love beginning but got really good after episodes - Absolutely fantastic show with really compelling characters. It did start off kind of rough, in my opinion, because it was very wacky and lighthearted. The tone does change in the show and the characters are developed really well over time, it just needs a little while to get there.
4. LISTEN IMMEDIATELY - Drifting back in to the reviews after my sixth listen-through, it’s great. It simply is. All other podcasts are measured against the towering pillar of wolf and they all come up short in some way. This is my comfort podcast food. This is the way television should be written instead of the bilge that we have now. This is the best of dialogue and old radio serials. This is the pinnacle of character development. This is the achievement of a generation. It really should be more popular.
5. Best Narrative Fiction Podcast - This podcast is far and away the best fiction podcast I’ve listened to. The characters are well developed, wonderful storyline and thought provoking plots. I also love how the podcast never takes itself too seriously and has plenty of comic relief. This is a true gem and I can’t recommend it enough to others!
6. Great! - I’m only a few episodes in I love this so much! It’s so fun and it’s addicting! People are leaving reviews saying this is bad because he burps ONCE and they call it Star Trek. It’s literally not stop. Also, yes to that one review people are still stupid enough to smoke in the future. It’ll also be around. Anyways, this is a good podcast forget about those bad reviews and try it yourself!
7. This one grew on me - Like others have stated, I wasn't super stoked in the beginning. But then some time around the plant monster, I started really loving it. When I first started, someone wrote a review that said "it starts off silly and gets dark." And that is so true. The storyline took such a different turn and I actually felt sad knowing I was at the finale. The introduction of new characters was amazing and I really loved (most of) them. I became so emotionally involved with this podcast. So I came here to say, don't give up on it. It might take a few episodes, or even seasons, but this podcast becomes amazing. Bravo everyone.
8. Stick with it! - It didn’t happen right away- in fact- I would try starting it, become annoyed, and then switch it off …many times!!.. BUT once during a long drive I made it through the first five episodes and before I knew it- I was waaaaay hooked! I binged the entire thing and -to my surprise- by the end of the podcast I found that I had become attached to the very character who annoyed me so much at the start. This podcast snuck up on me and stole my attention. Thank you so much for the hours of easy fun for my brain. Ps. I still don’t love the guy with the accent. Why does it sound so very very fake to me? Am I the one who’s wrong here? There is no way that that is what a Russian accent sounds like right?!
9. MUST FOLLOW! - You must lissen to this at chor earliest convenience… or I may be withholding the inoculations holding your life in tha precarious balance you believe is “normal” Wait, wait, wait… was that your Dr Hilbert impersonation? Love the show!!!! Fantastic writing, great acting, you all are wonderful!!
10. Minkowski not MinCOWski - After years of listening to podcasts and audio books this one is at the top of my list. The voice acting is phenomenal, the characters are lovable, the story is at times funny and always compelling, but there are moments that are so beautiful they are like a punch to the heart. This was the podcast that I never wanted to end, but like all the best things in life, it eventually must. I feel enriched for having experienced it, and for that I am grateful.
11. So Amazing! - Wolf is one of my favorite pieces of media of all time. The storytelling and characters are engaging and masterfully done. The show is funny, but doesn’t shy away from being serious when needed. I have listened to this show repeatedly and I am sure it will continue to be a favorite of mine for a long time. I highly recommend giving it a try!
12. Possible Shout out? - Hey I’d like to say, by far one of the most exiting, intelligent and not to mention downright hilarious at times live pod/radio shows I’ve heard to date, really enjoyed listening to Wolf . That said, I was wondering, as I start up watching star trek deep space I had forgotten the base that the surgically modified Jean Luke Picard attacked just pior to the first episode, was called Wolf . Any coincidence there guys? Just asking…. Anyhow loved the show would recommend it to anyone who enjoys sci-fi literature or story content that will surprise you! Thanks so much for putting it out there guys!
13. Top Tier - The best audio drama I’ve ever listened to, and one of the best stories I’ve ever interacted with. It takes a few episodes to really zero in on what makes it so special, but once you get to episode it’s got you. Creators are so conscientious, actors are incredible as performers and people, and the representation of mental health through H.E.R.A.‘s arc is the best I’ve ever seen.
From the writer of The Book of Eli and co-writer of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story comes an all-new sci-fi epic performed by Shannon Woodward (Westworld, The Last of Us Part II). In the near future, Earth has been conquered by a race of brutal alien machines known as the Mek. When a young woman stumbles across a mysterious map that may hold the secret to humanity’s liberation, she embarks on a dangerous odyssey that leads her to an amazing discovery — a long-lost prototype war machine known as...

1. Honestly, I found it a bit melodramatic - even soapy - I feel like this story has a ton of potential. It’s an interesting concept (albeit not that original), and a fairly strong interesting protagonist. At least to start. Then you get an incredibly formulaic, saccharine, and two-dimensional brother who sacrifices everything so she could live, etc. Then there’s a strong female protagonist, who does have positive attributes. She does immediately fall in love with basically the first strong man that comes by, and it was awkward, but you could maybe salvage it by saying she’s representing what "real-life" "complicated" feminism looks like. Except most complicated adult feminists aren’t usually in an intense overpowering crush with their closest male friends, nor do they fantasize about doing so. And so maybe that’s the hint. Maybe this is actually aimed at a young adult audience. If so, OK fair enough. But I wish they’d advertise what you’re going to get a little bit. Not to say that it’s so terrible. But honestly it wasn’t very good. And I think even the fans would admit that - we all have shows that we love that aren’t necessarily masterpieces. But I don’t think this is going to be one of those for me, at least.
2. When is season ? - I absolutely loved listening to this series!! The story and the action was exciting and kept me on edge the whole way through, and I hope they make a second season. While it might be more difficult to keep the action more specific to the main characters what with how it ended, I would absolutely love to hear more to this story! Nonetheless this was a great show from the story to the reader, and I can’t wait for more!!
3. Incoherent rant against humanity - Humans dared to be skeptical of a Faustian bargain. The narrator says that makes us greedy. Humanity wasn’t enlightened enough to accept the benevolence of a superior species. And so that same species destroyed and enslaved us, inventing instruments of torture. But they are beautiful and kind, and would have shown humanity the better path… And our hero believes all this. Hating her own kind and idealizing her oppressors. “Thought provoking?” Give me a break.
4. Sci-fi back to its roots - Really loved this adventure, got me through my work day happily. Love that you had a strong female lead and you weren’t constantly bashing the listeners over the head with that fact, and yet she was who was beautifully feminine at the same time. While most of the men were canon fodder… they were not depicted as useless morons as so many stories portray them as now days. The story pulls from other sci-fi obviously yet I found it new and refreshing and I was able to escape into it. From what I could tell you chose not to lace it with wokeism or modern politics like most podcast stories now days (which I can not thank you enough for) and allowed the listener to stay in the story. Well done, I look forward to the next season keifer jacinto
5. Immensely Satisfying - When post-apocalyptic science fiction is done well, it can’t be beat. This story drew me in from the first few minutes. This is proof positive that one does not need a big multi-cast production with a huge budget and sophisticated sound design to have a captivating story. All one needs is an incredibly gifted writer and a superb voice actor who has mastered their craft. There is fantastic character development where you start feeling for these characters which is not easy to do with one actor. Episode had me squirming in my seat….so intense! Stayed up for hours going over the scenes in my head. The breaks between the voice actor’s monologues were very effective in adding even more depth to the story. It has a great story arc. The ending gave me the same sense of hope and trepidation that I got after seeing the first Terminator movie. Overall, very well done!
6. Great Story! - Never would I thought I could love a podcast story as much as this one. Each episode had me at the edge of my seat and wanting more. The writing was beautiful and it felt like a very unique story, which is really hard to find these days. I highly recommend it and please give this podcast a chance. The content does not disapppoint.
7. Hoping for More - I enjoyed the plot and storyline. I found myself imagining and immersing into a world with a subjugated human race and new technology. This story has a very Hunger Games feel to it. The plot progressed quickly, possibly too fast at times, but did a good job of not covering too much ground and also building in explanations for the time leaps. I also appreciated the mistakes built in the story like plans falling apart, guns getting jammed, or main characters getting shot. The conclusion also left a lot of loose ends that I’m hoping become a continuation of the story. What happened to Falk? How will the human race recover? Is something bigger on its way to Earth? This story would make a really interesting movie or tv show and a really fun video game.
8. One of the best fictional podcasts I’ve heard! - The story is highly engaging. I couldn’t stop listening to the episodes. You can really imagine and feel the tension in this story Gary Whitta created. The narration is by Shannon Woodward is fantastic, you hear the different characters in her voice and feel their struggles. I really hope this podcast gets turned into a movie or TV show. I’d love to see Shannon Woodward as Dakota and see the Gundog in action.
9. Fantastic! - This is an excellent audio book in podcast form. The story and characters are engaging. The plot moves at a clip while not being rushed. Whitta paints a vivid picture. Woodwards narration performance is great aswell. Last night I drove for min longer than I needed. Just mesmerized in the story and the delivery. Ep. phew. Fantastic!
10. had me counting days till next episode - So I usually don’t write reviews.. I will give out stars based on my opinion but I don’t usually write because we’ll I just assume no one really reads them but if someone who would have passed by the series listens because they see this review then I have done my part.. this is the best hands down best audio book turned podcast I have ever heard.. I’m not someone who will read the same books over and over or watch movies I’ve seen again but this one.. I listened to each episode maybe or times and every time I heard something new and every time I listened it was like I was there in their world with them watching it happen or experiencing it with the characters which is something only the most talented writers can create for their audiences!!! So whoever you are that may read this review you will thank me when you are done this series, the only other podcast I’ve heard that I thought was even close to being as good as this one is ‘we’re alive’ since listening to that series it’s been podcast after podcast trying to find one that grabbed me and pulled me into their world and I’ve been disappointed time and time again… UNTIL I LISTENED TO GUNDOG!!!!!… so I can’t stress enough if you pass by this podcast you will never know what you missed out on.. but if you stop and listen you may be able to escape the world around you for just a little while if you allow your self to and experience what an amazing writer can do.. but you definitely will not be disappointed I promise you… this is the end of my first and probably last written review thank you…
11. Good until stupid - I liked it a lot until the first minutes of Episode , when the lead character did something stupid and pointless for no good reason (she didn’t know the guy long enough to take chances for that). I am guessing the reason is some plot twist, but it doesn’t matter. The character wouldn’t logically do what she does. The writer’s manipulation thus becomes too evident, and the plot ruined. I am out.
12. I don’t even like audio books but this is different - Like my title says, I’m not into audio books. I’d rather get a story by reading it or playing a video game. This is different. I love sci-fi, post apocalyptic, ad mechs. Clearly this is up my alley. Regardless of that, it’s a well written story deserving of everyone’s attention. Like a book, it’s easy to binge to the point that a minute episode feels short.
13. Good but could be so much better - I think it’s well written and the narrator is pretty good working with what she has. However they could get a few actors in here to change it up a little some variety on voices (not a robot) Unlike a book when you hear “she said” or “he spoke” very couple moments … it’s annoying and a little frustrating. The potential this had is crazy, and I wish more thought was put into production as well. But the writer Chefs Kiss
