it was interesting in the beginning, and then gets very derailed with too many science fiction tropes. It borders on the absurd, and is too confusing to parse through.

So... is that the ending?? An ending at the beginning of a new story line?? Does anyone know? I am starting to get a bit frustrated at stories that just disappear when they haven't ended yet. Just as bad as TV shows that come on TV these these days... they play a 100 of them for one season, then 99 of them are gone the next. I was really hoping that podcasting would be different. But it doesn't seem the case... so far 😔

look i get societally a strong woman who tells men to leave her alone is a cool trope but less than 1 min and I don't like the main character that man was obviously not a threat to her and it sounds like she flat out killed him with powers or something? either way this hate for hates sake mentality is just bullshit. golden rule says treat people how you wanna be treated if a kid ran up to me and told me they know a book by heart and I told them to fuck of is that right? no what about and elderly woman tells me she knows a book by heart and I tell her to fuck off is it right ? no. this character needs to talk to a psychiatrist about her anger issues or the author of this podcast I suppose
