In the first episode of Tanis, our host, Nic Silver, wonders if the Internet age might contain one last great mystery, an ancient myth known as “Tanis.” His exploration into the enigmatic Tanis begins by asking the seemingly simple question, what is it? The answers, he soon discovers, are far more complicated.

In my opinion, this one is a bit of a slow starter. I was considering stopping after the third episode- I didn't dislike it, but there are so many other podcasts out there, and I was thinking of moving on. But I listened to a couple more, I'm now on ep. 110, and I am hooked. Give it some time, the characters develop, the story becomes just clear enough to keep you engaged but also guessing, and I'm personally very glad that there are quite a few more episodes to come.

How come there was never a time when they asked Veronika WTF happened last time? Why did you ignor me and change your number? Now she’s back and he’s uneasy but never addresses it.

The "elevator game" sounds like a way to be obnoxious, not a way to another world. Can you imagine trying this in a busy high-rise?... Actually, I can see myself trying it to accomplish it without any interruptions. I also enjoy going up the down escalator. 😁
