I found the narrator here too stilted and lacking in confidence. It ruined the story.

The narrator for this episode just isn't comfortable enough with the work to pull this off. Her halting recitation makes immersion impossible. Too bad.

Not my jam, sadly; guess I'm just too much a dog person.

I've thought about the various divergent points in my life. My family not moving to Arizona, joining the Marines right out of high school. Not serving a mission. Joining the Army as an Intelligence Analyst instead of wasting 3 years after my mission. Extending my time in Germany instead of PCSing to Ft Campbell. Reenlisting instead of seperation in February 1990, which would have sent me to Iraq/Kuwat with my friends. Not moving back home after a couple years in Clarksville. This doesn't even cover all the small choices I made that might have made a small difference that would build into a divergence point.

Sarah in the club with the Hugo .. As a writer and player of a bazillion rgp adventures, I believe that the dead Sarah is actually the DJ and the muderer has taken her place. That would make the murderer the committee member. What I son't know is why the scientist would want to become the DJ.

Well, 3k, not really next to nothing, still 5.5k saving is better than a slap on the nose with a dead unicorn.

Good enough story but whatever the narrator was jiggling around in the background coupled with the throat and swallowing noises made it unlistenable for me :(
