Intriguing story, professionally produced
This is a fascinating story of a blind sheriff named Burns. It’s set in the Old West and is shaping up to be a good story. As of this writing, there’s only one episode, but it has already set the hook of intrigue and mystery. The production quality is really good, with a dramatized storytelling by multiple professional actors in a pro-level studio. There’s even foley (sound effects), like dogs barking in the background and horses galloping to help you feel like you’re a part of the story. It’s something like listening to a movie, only you’re not missing anything that is only conveyed visually. Looking forward to future episodes!
Can't wait for more!
Great premise, intriguing set up! Looking forward to more!
Old Radio type Drama with a modern twist
John Wesley Shipp is perfectly cast to play blind sheriff Burns in this old timey feeling radio serial that is actually a professionally produced podcast; making it more accessible for the modern generation. Great supporting cast, clever concept, sound effects, and clever scripts bring the "old west" to life for a new generation who may never have had a chance to listen to old radio serials. Award winning show. Give it a listen! Was proud to help crowdfund their initial startup. Yee haw!
