Franz Kafka meets Thomas Ligotti
I came across this recently, and it's quickly becoming one of my favorite podcasts. The stories are similar to the writings of Thomas Ligotti, Kafka's more surreal moments, and The Unconsoled by Ishiguro. The narration is pitch-perfect, and never becomes forced or overly dramatic. Highly recommended.
The best audio drama I've listened to. Well-written, perfectly paced, and well-acted. Perfects the "calm narrator" of spooky occurances genre. Only audio drama I've ever wanted to replay as soon as it was finished. One of the best pieces of horror/drama media I've found, not just podcasts.
Couldn’t stop listening!
I’ve really been enjoying I am in Eskew, it reminds me of Fallen London, and, as other reviewers have mentioned, Neil Gaiman’s works and the darker parts of Welcome to Night Vale. Once I started listening it was really hard to stop! It’s definitely worth a listen!
