Great production value
Great story thus far and very well made.
A hilarious audio drama that somehow keeps finding fresh, new ideas in each episode. It's all centered around a central story but has found a format to change up the story with side stories each week that keep you interested in the larger scheme.
Ambitious return to classic radio drama
Big Data is a lot more immersive and invoved than your average scripted podcast. Sure, it's fictional (I hope), but it's drenched in real-world information and actual science/facts about how the ineternet works and how we use it. It's one of the only podcasts on my rotation that I cannot multitask and do anything more intense than folding laundry while listening to it. I find myself either missing too much plot or totally distracted from whatever task I was trying to complete.
