I wasn’t sold on the first episode, but I kept it on while I was doing some chores - and soon realized I wasn’t doing my chores at all, I was COMPLETELY engrossed in the story. Yes, as other reviews say, the acting can be a little overdone, but overall, I think this podcast is one of the most compelling story-like podcasts I’ve ever heard. I listened to every episode in just two days, and so far since finishing, I’ve recommended it to at least 15 people. Every episode is spookier, more frightening, shocking and addictive than the last - if you’re looking for a story to shake you to your bones and penetrate every aspect of your thought, this is the one. Sorry for the dramatics.
