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!
