the dramatizations are pointless and detract from the content making it an awful experience.

I like the acting. It reminds me of a bygone era. Back when the family entertainment highlight of the week was an acted show on the "wireless" or radio for us kid's! lol

It amazes me how many people find it so easy to complain about something that they themselves couldn’t do if their lives depended on it!! Just please get over yourselves! I personally enjoy this podcast including the acting! Thanks and keep it up 😀

I agree with most on here...great podcast but the acting parts just ruin it for me....I hung with it because I do like the stories but with so many complaining of the bad acting skits...I'd remove them for future episodes.

Even though I love your podcast, I just can't listen to the actors voices. I feel like it really cheapens the story.

Lucy Tobier

Julie Sirabella I totally agree. it's really unnecessary

I looooove this podcast! The character change in voices and even having 2 different narrators keep you engaged! Keep up the good work guys! Glad I found this channel.

Everyone is complaining about the voice acting. There are plenty of other podcasts you can listen to without it. I personally think it's great. It's different to what I'm used to hearing and makes the stories come to life for me more than most others. I'm mainly disappointed that, through castbox, all the older episodes are no longer available as I hadn't heard them all before they got taken down.

I think they most likely died from some kind of drug that was supposed to enhance the spiritual experiment ... too bad there were no toxicology reports those days ....

you could just say in the beginning "some names have been changed for the privacy of those involved", instead or "_____ who we'll call ____" 700 times over
