Hit and miss

After randomly picking a few stories here to listen to, they vary greatly in length and quality. Some are sub- 10 minutes, while others are over 30. Some are pretty straightforward and fairly interesting, others are confusing and don't really seem to "go anywhere". Tough to make a call, stories go between 2 and 4 stars so I'll go 3.

It's read by a computer, but the TTS program used here is loads better than the typical freebie compu-voice heard in some other podcasts. At first it could pass for a real human, but listen a while and you'll hear some words that aren't said quite right, or odd pacing in a sentence that gives it away.

Really well done overall

They can vary in length and quality, BUT if you are looking for a story podcast that will consistently treat you right and not disappoint, this is it. I LOVE the feeling behind this podcast. It is utterly FREE of the ironic snarkiness that seems to be de rigur in all the others.

Great All Around Listening

This is a great podcast, and there’s a genius at work within it.

I listen to just about every story generated Sci Fi podcast on the net, and there are many good ones, but this one is consistently great, while others are hit and miss.

Let me repeat...real genius. Not everyone and not all the time, but one of the writers is so far above most writers, his stuff is like listening to gold.

I believe it’s the father. I can even tell when he’s edited the other writers stuff. There will be glimmers of his genius reflecting in their more average stuff...but ever their average stuff is great!

I started listening in 5/18, so I found the podcast with over 100 episodes. The stories are all independent of each other, but some of them have a theme that connects them. That can be a bit confusing.

This is my favorite.
It’s safe for all ages to listen.
Not violent
Not morbid
Not gross
More fun
And fun again
