Reviews For Original Science Fiction – Makeshift Stories

Something wonderful going on. I love these and binged on all the episodes available. Now I have to wait for new ones and I am so happy when one appears
This is a great podcast, and there’s a genius at work within it. I listen to just about every story generated Sci Fi podcast on the net, and there are many good ones, but this one is consistently great, while others are hit and miss. Let me repeat...real genius. Not every story is perfect, but the main writer has honed his craft so that it feels like listening to gold. Within this vast array of stories, just about the entire human experience and alien too, I suppose, is touched upon. I started here in May, 2018; I listen because the stories make me feel something, they open my mind and excite my Sci Fi cravings. Although the stories are independent of each other, there is a connecting theme running through a lot of them. Many of the same characters, their world’s and timelines pop up throughout the catalogue. What more can I say? I love this podcast. It’s appropriate for most ages; It’s... Not too violent or graphically violent Not weirdly morbid; it doesn’t dump negativity into one’s mind Not too gross, Very Interesting, lots of great plots. Quite often Educational and always thought provoking. Fun More fun And fun again
They can vary in length and quality, BUT if you are looking for a story podcast that will consistently treat you right and not disappoint, this is it. I LOVE the feeling behind this podcast. It is utterly FREE of the ironic snarkiness that seems to be de rigur in all the others.
This podcast is't easy to put into a specific genre though it tends toward Sci-Fi which is great by me. I have listened for years and I can say that they have good stories that are engaging and silghtly different from other genre podcasts. Listen, you won't be sorry, I honestly can't believe I hadn't reviewed before, sorry.
Who said a G rated podcast can’t be any good? The stories told here are thought provoking, fun, and clean. You have my highest recommendation. Thank you and keep up the good work.
Very enjoyable, and thought provoking stories. I think Rod Serling would be impressed.
I discovered this podcast randomly, years ago. I continue to come back and listen. The stories are pretty consistently interesting and well composed, and well read. It is one of the better podcasts available for short fiction.
You need to listen to this. This fantasy story is by far the best story I have ever herd. :) if u like Scifi, or fiction, or even Harry potter u will like this garrentied
This package of stories brings you around the universe and back. While it is often strange and has it's moments of over the topness. All and all the stories are fun and entertaining. I enjoy being brought out of my world into theirs for any where from 10-30 mins. Not amazing but good enough!
A highly immersive universe that covers all ranges of topics; from inteligent life on other planets to where your other socks goes when it dissappears in the wash. A mix of science fiction and modern fables, this podcast is one of my all time favorites!
After randomly picking a few stories here to listen to, they vary greatly in length and quality. Some are sub- 10 minutes, while others are over 30. Some are pretty straightforward and fairly interesting, others are confusing and don't really seem to "go anywhere". Tough to make a call, stories go between 2 and 4 stars so I'll go 3. It's read by a computer, but the TTS program used here is loads better than the typical freebie compu-voice heard in some other podcasts. At first it could pass for a real human, but listen a while and you'll hear some words that aren't said quite right, or odd pacing in a sentence that gives it away.
