just wanted to quickly say that this show is the ONLY podcast with consistently good stories, I've been listening a long time and I am very seldomly disappointed, well written with good narration, thanks for all the cool content, much appreciated, especially in a time when being mediocre is more often than not as good as it gets!!!

This "story" sucks. The author keeps "gender dystopia" the topic but to keep the story " horrific" throws in a cemetery and a tiger and an unrelated nonsensical ending ??? Shame on The Other Stories for presenting a new low in story writing.
