Pretty darn good
I'm not really into horror normally but something made me download this yesterday. I listened to The Bagman on my drive home and thought it was great. I wouldn't really call it HORROR because I didn't have to turn it off at any point ;) but it was still a very good story with great narration. Maybe more of a thriller than a horror, but still very good. Keep them coming!
Consistently terrific quality!
From content to presentation, everything about this podcast is absolutely top-notch. The stories range all the way from quirky dark fantasy to gut-wrenching horror, but are all very well-written. The narrators are always in excellent voice, and the production values are some of the best I've heard in the podcast field. This is one of the best storytelling podcasts out there -- if you like horror, Pseudopod is one-stop shopping!
The only thing I don't like about this podcast is when my 18 year old listens first and tells me what the story is about. Thank god she is going to college in the fall. Great job thanks for the stories.
