Creepy… but in a good way.
A mix of NPR & the paranormal… loved the narrative approach to a subject matter that can get tedious with technical jargon. Some things are just seem unexplainable and maybe they should stay that way.
Fantastic work. Looking forward to more! Consider me subscribed.
Turn off the lights, light a candle, and get ready to call a friend…or better yet, take a drive on a rainy evening and listen to this amazing spooky podcast. When did Mulder and Scully start working for NPR / CBC radio?
Loved it, and can’t wait for more.
Never sleeping again...
Wow. Just freakin' WOW! Great storytelling and amazing ending.
