This podcast has really lost its way. I only keep listening because I like Otis so much. i know they can only read stories they find. its not like the producers of the show write the stories, but man these stories were hot freaking garbage. and to the person who is conducting a doctoral study that revolves around the story you wrote... i hope you are a better doctor in your respective field than you are an author. please don't ever write another story. you suck.

Top work as usual, from 1 of my FAV master story tellers. I would gladly donate, just to hear Mr Jiry team up for a classic long single tale with Mr G. M. Danielson, cos they both have a brilliant spooky laugh, that always set the tone.
