Fun and exciting
Managlitch city is a funny sci fantasy podcast about a rich world told from an underground radio station DJ and his vast of cohorts! Look forward to every broadcast!
I happened to stumble upon this podcast a couple of weeks ago, and have almost gotten to the most recent episode. I really hope there will be more!
I usually don't like paranormal that much, but Managlitch won me over in the first episode! The writing is clever, with a playful sense of humor that's irresistible. The acting is also excellent.
I really hope there will be more episodes! Oh wait, I already said that. :-P
A fun podcast about a surreal world of "accidental wonders," with great heart and some really great story arcs coming through as it goes along.
