Definitely one of our favourite episodes of this half-deliciously-eerie, half-delightfully-cheerie podcast. Dickens would be proud!

Thank you! true fans will absolutely love you, will remain loyal and it is incredibly timely and needed, to pull in some very hungry listeners plus fill a massive hole in podcast options that many a large audience have been patiently waiting for this arrival. I am very excited , as I am sure many more are and will be. just fyi, this was extremely hard to find and does not show up with other like casts, for recommendations. I am not sure, but you may check your metadata and algorithms for tags and keywords, etc. As I think many people are not finding you unless by complete accident. cheers,

This has quickly become one of my favorite podcasts. I love the quiet horror stories then the banter after each story. The music and voice over work and editing is excellent. I'm hoping for a new season. Keep up the great work!
